A couple of things that I truly enjoy from the new Macbook, first; the illuminated keyboard is amazing..this truy is a benefit .
And lastly the track pad;
"Use two fingers to scroll up and down a page. Pinch to zoom in and out. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries. Rotate to adjust an image with your fingertips. Using the new four-finger swipe gesture, swipe up or down to access Exposé modes and left or right to switch between open applications. If you’re coming from a right-click world, you can right-click with two fingers or configure a right-click area on the trackpad. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you’ll wonder what you ever did without it."

I love the gestures on the trackpad. Most of those have been in the MacBook Pro for little while, except the 4 finger swiping. I used to hate using trackpads, but with the gestures I sometimes find myself using the trackpad instead of the mouse.

I hate Expose, for whatever it's worth.

Well, I updated iTunes on the Macbook and I have to say that Genius Bar is amazing. I love how it makes a playlist from your library when you select one song and how it prompts similar music for you to buy form the iTunes store.
And to makes things better, turn on the visualizer. The graphics are incredible.

Questions for Macbook users: Aside from the cost of the laptop itself, taxes, and perhaps shipping, were there any other fees? Warantees, additional services, etc?

And for anyone who's new to Macs, any difficulty switching and navigating on an entirely different system?

Bootcamp.

Lets you use both OSX and windows, so if you want to get used to mac, you can still occasionally switch back to windows. Or, like me, use the mac part for graphical and music stuff, use the windows one for general stuff.


I hope to have mine in one week from now. Thursday night I hope to get it!

No additional fees. There is an optional AppleCare service plan you can buy. I think it's $350 for an additional 3 years of tech support/service.

I've used Macs all my life so I can't comment on difficulty switching. All I'll say is that after you get used to it you'll wonder why you didn't switch earlier.

Awesome! Yeah, I bought the AppleCare service plan for my iPod, but I never ended up using it. Oh well.

I've used Macs a little bit before and they didn't seem too terribly difficult, so I'm sure I could switch easily enough..

Soon..........................

Thanks for the info, guys

I got a new iPod classic 120 gb today. And an incase wonderful little protection device:



...but I got sad because the case makes it so it won't fit into my roadTrip in the car now.

I keep waiting for these new Apple in-ear headphones with dual drivers to come out to see what they are like. They said October, but it doesn't look like that's happening now.
