but there will still be the mbp, right? that's somewhat of a relief i guess, but man. i like the macbook just fine (even if the one that was being sold was actually slower than the one i bought three years ago).

i might download lion in a minute, though.

I may check into this. (Although I DON'T need another damn thing to plug into the USB ports.)
there probably are, or at the very least i could use my mighty mouse. but i'm like you, i have enough crap to plug in as it is. if i need to charge my ipod, ipad, and phone (and this has happened to me) i have to prioritise. plus lugging around anything external, to me, negates the whole purpose of a laptop. charging something is one thing because odds are your ipod isn't plugged in 24/7, but if i'm lugging the laptop around with me, i don't want a bunch of stuff dangling from it. this is why my external hard drives are still back in the states, attached to my imac. i should've brought them with me but i don't want a bunch of stuff plugged into a laptop, when one wrong step means i accidentally unplug one and possibly mess up the data on them.

k, just installed lion and omg. why the hell is the scrolling backwards? well, i know why, but it's lame. the worst part is from what i've seen online i can't see how to fix it. all the options people are offering are not visible in my system prefs, i guess because i have the old school trackpad.

i did read where you can connect a mouse and change it that way, but i have to borrow someone's mouse to check it out. here's hoping it works. for scrolling i just prefer it the way it was, i don't use my ipad enough to where i'm more used to how that scrolls. besides, it keeps me on my toes to have them both work differently.

Go to System Preferences -> Trackpad -> Uncheck scroll direction.

What do I need to know before buying a Macbook? My parents say they're gonna put $1k towards one for my bday, and there's one on sale for $1099. 250GB.

like i said, i don't have that option in my system prefs. did some more searching and found a fix - plug in a mouse (or do it over bluetooth) and the option's under mouse. all fixed now, yay.

thanks. it sucks that it's so difficult to fix for those of us without the newer touchpad, but as long as you've got a mouse it's not too bad.

I always like maxing-out the RAM when I order one, but I know it's not absolutely necessary.

oh yeah. it's cheaper to do it when you buy it (if you're not going to diy) so you might as well. when you first get a brand new laptop it seems soooo fast, but quickly you'll find yourself wishing you had more ram if you didn't upgrade.

I have an Early 2008 MacBook Pro, the last one before they switched to the unibody model. Adding 2 GBs of RAM has definitely extended its lifespan and value for me since I occasionally do video editing on here.

Gonna upgrade to a new MBP in Spring, fingers crossed.

Dear Carbonite Mac user,

As you may know, Apple has released the latest version of their operating system, Mac OS X Lion (10.7). At this time, Carbonite is not yet compatible with Lion. We’re actively working on an update to our software that will make it fully compatible with the new operating system.

If you continue using your current operating system (Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Mac OS X Leopard), Carbonite will continue to function normally.

If you plan to upgrade to Lion, please visit our Mac OS X Lion FAQ page for important information and updates about using Carbonite with Lion.

Sincerely,
The Carbonite Team
