Well I got my MacBook Pro back in Feb/Mar and have been loving it ever since! It's true what they say; "Once you go Mac you never go back!" I am in the Army and am stationed here in San Antonio, TX though originally from VA. I am pretty savvy in terms of electronics and figuring stuff out, no major snaffus (sp?) so far w/ the Mac but I know I am quite a ways off from tapping in to it's full potential.

Good to see new people here!

Also, another great "unknown" Mac quote:

You don't work on a Mac, you work with it.

Yeah, when I bought my macbook pro I thought it was going to be better than Vista for sure, but I never expected it to be this awesome!

Loving my MBP more and more everyday

I am constantly surprised how smooth OS X is. It's snappy, unobtrusive, and allows me to do what I need to do. I don't feel the need to fight with it at all. Plus, this iMac is just beautiful.

I'm now about 5 months in to my Mac "experiment". What started out as a complimentary machine to my collection of Windows XP / Vista / Linux boxes has turned into a wholesale replacement program for me. Replaced my primary WinXP development box with a Mac Pro, upgraded the still new MacBook to a MacBook Pro so that my daughter could have my MacBook...

Best tech decision I've made in many years was to buy that little MacBook.

That's exactly how I feel. Since moving to a Mac I find myself working more with the operating system and not against it like I was with Vista.

When working with OS X I'll sometimes say to myself "this just can't be that easy" because Vista made even the simplest things difficult.

Go Mac and you'll never turn back. Switch on the light and you'll see the truth.
