Where great old Macs live again!

Apple = very satisfying packing materials

Like Jesse, I also purchased a MacBook Pro this week. My very first Intel machine! I'm both relieved and a little ashamed. Coincidentally, my G5 blew its second processor shortly after I ordered this machine.

Congratulations on your new machine.  What size model did you get?

Yes, congrats! Awesome! I'm a little jealous. I still have not entered the Intel world. I'm using my Pismo right now, and loving every minute. But, sadly, there are places this curvy beauty just can't go.

Thank you both. :-)  Kathryn, I'm jealous of your Pismo. Mmmm!

 

Jesse, I went for the base 13" model+SSD.

As you should be ;-}   Seriously, enjoy that fast and sexy machine!

Congrats! I agree, Apple packaging is amazing. They pay attention to every possible area of design. I remember the cube box they used on the first iPod. Just amazing. Unfortunately, that was the best part of that iPod. I went through 4 of them in about 5 months on warranty. I gave up and sold the last one without powering it up and registering it. I've had the one I'm using now about 4 years.
