my precious...

I finally got my macbook last week. I've been impatiently waiting for that thing almost two weeks now.
Well, what can I say... I used to be one of those guys that hated the mac os but gave the sleek design an envious look each time someone was using a mac.
So after I got my macbook I installed Windows XP right away but pretty soon found out it was not usable at all. One of the most important things in Windows, the right mouse button is not working. Or at least I have no clue how to emulate it. ctrl+click like in mac osx didnt do the trick.
Another important feature to me was the iSight webcam. No drivers for this one either.

That led me to going back to mac osx and giving it a try... Oh well, what can I say, after about two days I just loved it. Sometimes it's still a bit frustrating when you try getting behind that shiny facade of moving objects but I'm sure I'll get used to it and figure out my way. I didnt install linux a couple of times for nothing. Maybe I can put that knowledge in use next time I fire up the terminal.

Oh yeah, and there's one feature I particularly like. The standby mode! It actually works like it's supposed to be!! When you close the lid the system is dead asleep within seconds and after reopening the screen it's back in a blink of an eye.
I never saw my Acer Windows laptop do that.....
me happy now :)
