Hi guys
First post so hello from me

Treated myself to a sixtieth birthday present, my first ever Mac and it's
a Mac Mini, the cheapest in the range.

Just been delivered so I suppose I should open it up and see what a mess I
get myself into :)

Welcome and enjoy. How did you feel when you opened the box the first time? Did you keep looking for the UPS guy until he came ?

I also recently got my hands on a MacBook Pro, 1st ever mac, just a few days before my 16th birthday.. And switching from Windows was also really easy. And to add some entertainment to my laptop, i installed Bootcamp and Windows XP on my MBP, and there is no problems at all =)

Mac Rocks big time =)

Thanks, I wish it was my 16th again...

It was my 60th
:)

Realy impressed with this Mac having had a few good plays with it


i think some of us read it right. ;)

after all this time you'd still go back to 16?
i'm only 37 and i'd hate to be 16 again. 32 maybe. that was a good age; but definitely not my teens or twenties. :)

Just bought 1st Mac and apparently the courier has dropped it off at home today and I'm here at work for another 5 hours!
Time to see what all the fuss is a bout (and feeling kinda smug and vindicated as my workmate has just bought a Vista Dell, which has one or two issues...he's back on the phone to them today!)
