No one likes a show off box ;-)

Only joking of course... Glad you like it! Did it come with the new Leopard OS? It looks very impressive http://www.apple.com/uk/macosx/leopard/

I gather you went off to Apple?

I am slowly going that way, I got myself firefox, it's much better than Internet Explorer, next I might take the big leap and go for a mac.:-D

Ducky that one was great! I laughed out loud.

Boxblu: So you've received your MacBook? Nice!

Just one thing... when you're free, give apple customer support a quick call to make sure that the free 3 year warranty is in their system. I've heard of one or two cases where it wasn't, but better to check than wait :D

I'm awaiting my iMac coming this week - can't wait!

Actually Boxblu....

You might want to keep your macbook pro in its box until... September 5/6/7. The new revised version of the MBP with the Core 2 duo chip is coming out, probably for the same price.

Also, anyone thinking of buying a mac mini.... wait a week or two :D

boonkoh, thanks for all your help mate. I decided to go with the refurb macbook pro 2ghz, 1gb ram, 100gb hd all for a tidy £1,156. I only went with it because it had the extra ram etc, it is just the best thing i have ever bought and love playin with it.

As i said i have always been a keen PC user and anyone who hasn't tried using one of the new macs needs to check it out...i mean just press the menu button on the tiny remote control provided to make all your friends instantly rage with jealousy!!! I love it.

P.S. My GF loves it sooo much she wants to get a 13" macbook, i have told her to hold off as you recommended and we will use the student offer then.

Thanks again for all your help it has been much appreciated. ;)

Ok...my first problem. I have had a few stalls whilst doing various different tasks, is this normal? Also a horrible noise seems to come and go which can be quite annoying in a quiet room. I hate having problems but i need to get it sorted asap in case it's an ongoing problem.

What would be your advice??? How long do i have to send it back to apple refurb?

Nowhere!! I had changed my avatar and everyone was complaining that they didn't recognise me anymore, so I've changed it back to the fuzzy ball with the shifty eyes, just in a different colour this time :)

I think I remember, did you look like a rainbow before?

Think you'd better check it out on Apple's website to get it sorted as soon as possible!

Hey boxblu,

Sorry, forgot to keep up with this thread! Saw your PM though and sent a reply. Problem being resolved?

The new intel macs are a real beauty :D And they're not just good looking either, they actually have the brains inside! The only problems come when you try to run Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Entourage and you see all your other programs slowing to a crawl....
