    Talking Finally a mac owner!
    Hi everyone!

    I just ordered my first mac ever - a 15" i7 MBP! I am very excited

    After many years of living in the troublesome world of windows, I finally did what I`ve wanted to do for the last two years - hit the order button at apple.com

    I`ll be using my MBP mainly for photo editing, some video editing and of course the usual web surfing. Maybe play a round of COD4 or Civ..

    I travel a lot in my work, but chose the 15" due to the fact that this will also be my main computer at home, and of course for the high res screen and i7 processor.

    I`ll be looking forward to reading this forum when I start using my mac (I`ve read it a lot BEFORE buing a mac too, of course..) Hopefully my post will be happy ones, and not full of unsolved problems

    Have a great day!

    Thank you!
    Its good to know there are so many knowledgeable people to ask if I have questions!

    I keep checking my order details, even though my machine isnt due for a month

    Well, thats the way it is with a custom build and living in Norway...
    Just hope the ash clouds will keep away so there isnt a delay on top of it all..

    Norway! I've been watching that HD train ride video from Norway! It's strangely fascinating

    As for "photo editing and video editing" well frankly I don't think you could have possibly picked or even built a better laptop for that purpose. A terrific choice (and one I'm looking at as well!).

    Looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

    Sounds great!
    Hi!

    I`m glad to hear that you think that my MBP is well suited for what I`ll be using it for! As I`ve never owned a Mac before I`m a bit nervous, of course, to see how it will work for me - it cost me a substantial amount of cash ($3500 with todays currency = NOK 20500,-). Still, I`m like a kid at christmas eve, looking forward to my MBP arriving!

    I`ll post a thread here when I`ve recieved it and used it for a bit.
    Currently I`m using a Dell XPS 1530 with T9300 Core2Duo 2,5GHz, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD 5400RPM and a Nvidia 9600 256MB vid card. It works all right with photoshop, bridge, lighroom and pinnacle stuido, but it is soooo slow boting up with all the windows cr"/#( , and it frequently freezes up when doing heavy stuff in CS3.

    Besides, I`m just tired of windows and want a new shining toy...

    As for the train video, I`m surprised that you have watched it, I thought it was a very "Norwegian" thing Actually I haven`t seen it myself, but it recieved a very good review - saying the same thing as you, it was strange, but somehow very cool... I`ll have to watch it..but it`s like 7 hrs or something?

    Thanks! Congratulations on your new toy! I keep checking my delivery information, but it keeps insisting on the 25th of may... Well, when you`re waiting for something good, it`s worth it

    You`re lucky to be playing with your mac already

    Congratulations! I switched just this past year, best computer purchase decision I've ever made. Works like a dream, never gives me problems and runs just as fast today as it did the day I got it.
