Thread: Well, I finally got one.
06-07-2007, 03:30 PM #1Well, I finally got one.
After being an avid Windows user, I finally managed to afford a Macintosh! I'm so thrilled.
I ordered a Macbook (Black) w/ 2.16 GHz, 1 GB memory, 160 GB HD, Double-layer SuperDrive.
I ordered it yesterday afternoon and was just notified that FedEx has just delivered it at my house. The fact that I am at work right now and can't get my hands on it right away is maddening!
But, good things come to those who wait - I think. Well, in this case, I know.
So, I look forward to the experience and basking in the knowledge available from y'all.

Wow, that quick? Where do you live?
Congrats by the way, be prepared to hang out with your laptop and do nothing else for the next week.

this is a mistake many former PC users make: calling them 'Macintosh'. Please don't. There hasn't been a Mac labeled a Macintosh since the turn of the century.

PS - if you get the chance later on, try upgrading to 2GB, it makes quite a difference. Only if you have the cash. You can get the RAM sticks for like 70$ or newegg (on specials).

Congratulations on getting your MacBook. I hope that you enjoy it.
I've just decided that when I get my iMac I will definitely do next day shipping.Brendan Welsh

It was a long drive home for sure! I just couldn't wait to get my hands on my new Mac. I took a couple of pictures when I was opening it. This weekend, hopefully, I'll see how good they came out and see if they're worthy of bandwidth. I'll also take some pictures of my MacBook itself...in all its glory.
I was concerned about my Internet connection. Every single time I bought a new PC, I always had issues with the Internet connection settings. So, I was prepared. I had my router settings. I had my ISP settings. I was set baby.
I didn't need them! It found my router...I pressed a button...and that was it. The setup continued. No errors. Nothing. Just smooth productivity.
After my desktop came up...I clicked on Safari to see if I had an Internet connection (my wi-fi signal was excellent)...and I DID!
If this were any other PC...I'd still be fighting with Internet settings (and installing drivers, tons of updates, virus programs, anti-spy applications, etc...). But, with my Mac, I was using it in about 15 minutes after taking it out of the box!
Needless to say...I AM PLEASED! Money well spent!
