At the young age of 13, i became an official switcher.
This was my greatest buy in price and in saving, but my gosh it was worth it.
so here is a picture, and i am an official switcher.

Pure bliss, and i am so pleased i decided to switch, but now comes.... THE STUDYING, i have installed steam already but am sad because CSS isn't yet out. darnm but it's the best computer i've used with 4gb of ram and 2.266ghz i am very very very pleased with my purchase.

How the **** did you save up for a MBP at 13? Wish I had that kind of pocket money Took me the whole summer to work off mine

Hope you enjoy your new machine If you want to play CSS you can always use Boot Camp and I bet it would even run virtually. I know I have CS1.6 in a wrapper, although the processor really spikes with that

Yes you are from a rich family to afford something like that.
That aside at least your parents are wise. Then going halves in a Macbook Pro and not just any random windows box proves this.

And the good part is the Macbook Pro will be good for at least 5 years. Maybe even more. That's enough time to finish school, get a job and save up for your next Macintosh.

(I know Mac is short for Macintosh. But saying Macintoshbook Pro just sounds weird )

Beautiful is all I can say. Still using the older MBPs that aren't unibody and my newer MB. >_<" It gets so dirty easily and I'm really thinking of getting a new MBP. >_>" It's either that or a Canon 7D.

Well, they're both pretty close in price! Just read a review on the 7D. Sweet. Have fun with either.

Hey kid, good for you.
I'm still a pre-switcher and hope to pull the trigger soon.
It takes me a little longer these days.....I'm 82

Congrats kid - this is definitely the best purchase of your teenage years, besides a car anyway, but you have a few more years for that

I just bought my first MBP too - You will not be disappointed!!!

Enjoy!
