I have been looking and lurking through the site for the last two weeks and I have to say that I am blown away!!! Very insightful and knowledge filled place! I decided to expand my horizons and purchased my first mac on March 14, 2006. (MacBook Pro 1.83 GHZ 100 GB HD). I have to say that I have been using M$ OS based pcs since 1992 (when I was 13 years old). So I have been exposed to Windows from 3.1 through my current Media Center 2005. I have to say that OS X seems to be more user friendly. (kinda like I look for something and its there). NO gripes just utter bliss!!! I love the fact that the product just works right out the box. I have had nightmares setting up pcs I assembled previously neye: I purcahsed a Airport Express w/ my MBP and was on the internet within 4 minutes with no hassles! I can work through my house effortlessly. I have to say that this was money well invested and I look forward to building my knowledge base on my new toy!!!!

Welcome to the forums! I too, am 13 years old (actually 14 on the tenth) and a mac fan!

Family's got an iMac... and I'm saving up for the intel iBook... gotta pay for all of it.
Funny, just looked up at your name, you're from charlotte, I'm from Raleigh. Small world.

Anyway, enjoy the mac, and if you have any questions..here's where it's at.

Pierre, Thanks for the heads up info! I actually got my first computer when I was 13 years old back in 1992 386DX25 (math co-processors where a status symbol back then!!) with a whooping 80 MB HD running windows 3.1 with a blisterring 2 MB of RAM. So I have come full circle and currently outside of my MBP I have 2 Shuttle XPC's with the same specs: 3.2GHz P4; 2.0 GB of Ram; 250 GB SATA HD; DVD+DL with Media Center 2005. The change was definitely needed to a mac!

haha.. oh, i was confused... thought you were a 13 year old, but you got into computers then... gotcha...

See, this is why they locked me inside with my Mac. Eh, no worries.
I remember my dad telling me a story about when he was on the PTA and they were decided whether to get a 10 or 15mb harddrives. They went for the 10 because 15 was way too expensive and just not justified.

LOL! My first was - get this - a Commodore Pet 32 with a whopping 32kb of memory. It still ran a decent Pac-Man though. :alien:

I'm coming from a ThinkPad, which is actually a really great machine for lefties. I reset my touchpad today to start learning ahead of the arrival of the MBP.
