So after waiting over three months... the release of the new MBP turned out to be all I hoped for. I ran over to the closest Apple store tonight and picked up a brand new 2.2ghz MBP with the good old student discount as well as a free Ipod (woohoo!). For my needs, for $500 it wasn't even a question that this machine will be more than enough compared to the 2.4ghz. I'm always disappointed that most people don't include pics with their brand new Mac stories so I made sure to include a few of those below. So far I'm extremely impressed.

The "Mac experience" has been everything it is cracked up to be, from the packaging in the box to the workmanship of the MBP. All I've gotten a chance to do is start downloading updates (which are taking an unusually long time but I imagine there's a good explanation for that). I'll definitely post up some more details on after I get a chance to thoroughly play with everything. Everything I do on the machine takes a lot of time as I'm trying to take make sure I do everything correctly... learning curve... I'll get there. For now... on to the pics!

That smile looks like me the day I brought home my iMac G5 and iBook G4. I will never get that day and still smile a lot of times when using both of them.
