Thanks Gary, Ben, and VS. This is quite exciting as this is my first Mac. It truly is very distracting, the beauty and functionality. I think I spent about six hours the first day exploring this fun machine.

I'm not sure if it will ever be possible to settle for a Windows PC again!

Thanks again guys.

Truly awesome! Impressive just doesn't quite cover it. A laptop chassis machined out of a solid piece of aluminum with the newest nvidia graphics card not yet released, and a multi-touch pad, Wow. I wish I needed one.

O I'm already there - I've joined the 's. Problem is: My pocket book isn't - and, truth be told - my ugly old black plastic Dell (ugh) notebook actually functions perfectly. So for now it's function over form - yup, I know Dells function doesn't "cut it" no way, no how, blah blah..

But : Waste will exacerbate man's contribution* to global warming (*in which you don't believe )! - think of it as ecology.
