    A 2 to 4 GB memory upgrade would be totally worth it, especially because it's relatively inexpensive and easy. I went from a second gen Macbook that I had upgraded to 3GB (most it could take) and...

    Back when I used bluetooth with my old verizon phone when transferring files between it and my Macbook there was a definite slowdown/jerkiness of mouse cursor movement. This indicated that the...

    Glossy screens are like Mighty/Magic mice. You either love them, hate them, or are ambivalent. I like my glossy (and Magic Mouse) but that's only because the display is quite brilliant enough and...

    Happens to me periodically with my external. As a data point, it's an Acer 23" LCD. Usually unplugging/plugging it back in rectifies it. Though I plug in/plug out every weekday when I go to work...

    My old second generation Macbook behaved exactly like that. My new Macbook Pro doesn't but that's not why I got a new one. The MBP just out-sexy's the MB.

    Still liked the computer enough and...

    First things I do when I get a new Mac:

    Transfer all my stuff over from my old mac with Migration assistant which makes it exactly like my old mac thus negating any 'first things' so I just use it...

    I had a whitebook and bought a Macbook Pro 13" and with Migration Assistant and a firewire cable two hours later it was like I was on my old Macbook except with a way better screen, trackpad, and...

    I wouldn't worry about it. Trackpad is made of glass, and if you have or have ever seen an iPhone which also has a glass touch surface you'd know that skin oil just happens. I use optical cleaner...

    For another option you could use what I use, which is iSquint. Google it. It's free and the programmer has a sense of humor in the GUI. I've had it very rarely fail to convert just about anything...

    I had my second generation Macbook for about 3 years as well though near the end of my ownership it was still running like a champ after a couple of upgrades. It's now living on in the hands of a...

    Okay looks like it does. Not only that but if you check "include CD text" in the dialog, it'll have tags when you put the CD back in.

    Hmm, looks like my new car is about to see it's first CD. ...

    It stuff like this that between my iPod and iPod enabled car stereo I don't burn CDs anymore. Used to. Have a whole collection of awesome, labelled (with printed on custom labels I made myself from...

    Because the screen quality on the MBP alone is absolutely worth the extra 100 (or in my case US$200.) Backlit keyboard is not something you'd think would be all that, but once you get one it is. ...

    Well, this would be right up my alley. Back in Feb. of 2005 I too was a die-hard Linux guy, coming from years of admining Solaris machines and used a Linux (specifically RedHat) box as my desktop...

    Kinda pricey, but Adobe Bridge that comes with Photoshop is pretty good. I choose things like Bridge if I'm not resorting to Finder with my pictures because unlike iPhoto it does not 'import' images...

    Operating altitudes for humans is about the same as that for Macbooks. If the plane weren't pressurized (to 8000ft BTW, standard pressure altitude at ~30,000+ ft) your Macbook would be the last of...

    I've owned both, a 13" white second generation (and my wife has a same generation Blackbook) and now a 13" Macbook Pro.

    Non-functioning USB ports means logic board replacement to fix. Whenever you read the words "logic board" think "actually costs more to replace than computer is worth."

    I could have gone with my "deciding what kind of Mac to get is like deciding who you'd want to marry" analogy:

    A Macbook Air is like super-hot, large breasted, leggy supermodel. She's very...
