This is a useless thread... but I had to tell someone and my friends still call me mac boy and make fun of the excitement with which I greet the discovery of new features and capabilities. Anyways, from my 17" PB to my new Macbook I love how my new mac smells... I know this is sort of wierd, but it's not far off the new car smell people often like. I also love the new keyboard on my Macbook and how large the trackpad is compared with other PC lappy's. I know there are a million things to love about your mac but what are some more obscure and interesting things that have you enamoured.

Cheers,

Marlow

Haha I feel the same way. Web browsing and checking email is guiltless - only time I might worry is sending something malicious on to a PC, but I know better hehe

I like it because its small (12") and is easy to carry around. Its basically my school laptop, and this is much better because my PC laptop was a 15" and was heavy. Plus I like how I can save all my documents and powerpoint pres. without worrying about it having a crash and losing all my stuff.

The only thing I miss about that thing was that I could play Vice City once I was done with my work.

I love iLife. All the things I mess around with, making movies, Garage Band, etc. I love it all.

Well the techies will shoot me down for this but I unashamedly like the uniformed design of mac products. My macmini goes with the mighty mouse, bluetooth keyboard, ipods, lacie harddrive, belkin hub etc. Whenever I buy non-mac products it's just not the same.

I just don't like one button mice. Ive had the same Logitech MX310 5 button for about 3 years and love it. I have one for my PC and my iBook. Theres a button on each side so I can go back and forth online.

I agree but on mac I've always had a mac mouse. The "right button" on mighty mouse is not the best and it'll be nice to have the real extra buttons. I've gotten used to using kb shortcuts now and actually prefer less mouse usage.

I love how its standard to use 2 screens on any powermac. Most pcs will not allow you to do that with out upgrading it, but even bottom line powermacs have that capability.

I can do that on my PC. . I don't though, no use for it. I keep music running on my iBook and other junk on my PC.

I love that I don't have to worry as much about reloading iTunes/My iPod 3 times in a year like I did with my Windows machine thanks to crashes. I love the fact that it's going to be pretty easy to chronicle my recent trip to Japan with iLife. I love spotlight and the over all look, feel, and way OS X works.

I love the fact that my PowerMac has an uptime of around 9 days and still runs faster than my Windows computer at work.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Yeah I really agree with not having to shut down or restart as being an advatage. I guess another plus I overlooked is this and other forums. I find getting help with Mac/linux problems alot easier than windows issues. I do miss the S-video on the powerbook on my new Macbook... I never carry the right adaptor with me, but this I will learn to do.
