I can't wait to get my MacBook (B) but its not going to happen until mid to late July. I've watched every macbook-opening video, actually I've watched everything MacBook related on all of YouTube. HOW DO I WAIT WITHOUT GOING INSANE!

Well, if you're not familiar with OSX you could read the Switch 101 or Mac 101 on apple's website. That's what I did to get familiar with Tiger so then when I got my Macbook I already knew my way around.

You could organize your itunes library and other files for the new macbook. Thats what I did and it sure freed up a lot of time to mess around and explore.

Look around here and elsewhere on the Internet to figure out what the best and coolest software applications for Mac are. That way you know exactly what to start downloading when you get it.

Normally I would get right on it, but I already filled up half a notepad on what I'm going to download and what URLS to go to to download them.

the best way to deal with not being able to get something for some time is NOT to think about it every moment. you're missing time you could be spending on other fun things or friends or family.

I didnt get my macbook for almost two months when I first started coming here. Look around, read up, ask questions if you're unsure. Visit some of the links for new switchers, they'll help a bunch!
