    I'm curious as to what those of you that have the New MacBook or MacBook Pro think. Should I really be THIS excited?

    I thought so too lol

    I can't wait to have it for development if anything. OSX86 is one thing, but having a real Mac to work on, as nice as it's going to be, and having the raw power... sends shivers up my spine.

    i have the 1600 dollar macbook
    and it is phenomenal...the only thing i would recommend is if you are planning to use boot camp..partition rather early so the fragmented files dont interfere with contiguous space
    also when you receive the piece..inspect it for slanted buttons..my f7 is slanted and some people also complain that the unibody itself is slanted...
    thats all...greatest laptop i have ever used

    Uhm , I don't like how it only has two USB ports.
    And sometimes the edges of the metally bit digs into your wrist.
    But it's fine if you have long sleeves or a sweater.

    It'll turn to callous.

    You should rest your wrists on the thing while typing anyway... can lead to carpal tunnel
