I wouldn't say it's necesarilly (look at that crappy spelling) better, but everything seems to just work without issues. I do miss some of the shortcuts and whatnot that I'd picked up on pc's over the years but my macbook starts up in about 20 seconds MAX while my 3 year old PC sometimes takes 5-10 minutes, (I know I probably just need some work on the pc)

i really wouldn't say it's better, but just different

I got the 17 - love the big screen and dont mind the lack of easier portability. I did not get the 3GB RAM though, just the 2GB - figured I would just get a new 2GB chip to replace one of the 1GB's from aftermarket if I needed it - didnt have your hook up and didnt want to pay the $500+ upgrade.

I'm stoked though.

How long did it take you to get yours? I ordered from apple store online and I'm dying.

Why not just buy it from an Apple Store?

6 days, i called a friends that works for the local (va) marketing for apple, and I also had to wait to be verified to become a student developer, but I paid the 15 buck for the 2 day shipping too!
