Hi everyone. I just bought my first Mac. It is an older Powerpc G4 500mhz with Mac OS 10. It is a nice learner machine. I plan on upgrading it soon with a better video card and processor. I have been an avid PC user and PC tech for many years. I see the justification on having both systems. I don't see the Mac as a replacement for my PC or vice versa, but they do compliment each other very nicely. I also use my iphone like it is going out of style.

No batteries for the camera but it came a nondescript brown box.

I flunked pics with both my first purchase of the Macbook, and then shortly after, an iMac.

Shouldn't the fridge have been moved next to the desk?

I lost my job two months ago so I used the last of the pay I got from selling all their stuff off after about 500 unsuccessful resume sendouts to buy two broken macbooks, and the parts to fix them. Sold those, bought more, and started developing good relationship with parts vendors. Now I get like 6 a week..

I decided to screw with it while watching tv or playing a game, to check some sites with during commercials/loading, ad it's a pretty cool machine. Runs logic from work nicely too. I now use them as much as my desktop even around the house.

I'm considering one for myself but since I have at least 2-3 here at any given time, that'd make no sense. I wipe the user account as I get it and before I sell it so I don't ever bother to screw around with preferences or anything, bit I have to admit, it is quite the little machine.

I still have no clue how to use half the stuff on it. After having an Inspiron 8200 for years, which was a total piece of junk, this is a welcome addition!

Just bought a Macbook, first time Mac user. So far I'm enjoying it, but I'm still at the configuration phase. Configuring Firefox as we speak.

Going to need to buy iWork soon as well. Boy do I hate configuration phases .

I just bought the new MacBook Pro 15". Should get here Monday. I have long used various distributions of Linux and FreeBSD, so I am very familiar with the OS. I am just now finally converting from the Dark Side on my home workstation. I'll confess I did order VMWare Fusion2 so I can run a few apps in WinXP. The wife can not bear to part with Outlook 2007 and I am not buying another copy for Mac. But I hope to get Mac versions of most anything else I use. I am ecstatic to finally switch!

I debated for quite awhile about getting the 24" LED Cinema display but I could not justify a monitor that only supports Mini DisplayPort at nearly twice the price of decent Dell. So I got a Dell 2408WFP since it has a huge variety of connectors with the USB hub and card readers. I read tons of reviews and kept going back and forth. I am not a big gamer so the input delay issue I could deal with. But I am still agonizing over the decision. The Apple display is just so pretty. Anything, though, is better than my big old 19" Graphics Series Viewsonic CRT that took up way too much desk space.

Hello Everyone!

Finally got a Mac on 8/18!!!! It's a refurbished MBP 13" 2.26GHz.

I've moved just about everything to it and have learned a few shortcuts that make it a dream to use. Battery is lasting 6-7 hours and has 7 cycles so far.

Still can't print to our home printer that is shared on a Vista Ultimate system, but I have a spare printer that can be used until I figure out what the problem is.

I was a PC, now I'm a Mac!!! WOOT!
