Woohoo - I got a Mac

A year or so ago I decided I was ready to move to the Mac. Unfortunately, my employer refuses to get me a Mac so I did the best I could and stuck and Apple sticker in the appropriate place on the back of my IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad. A couple of weeks ago something terribly wonderful happened. Our home laptop that Kim and the kids use bit the dust. After some research I had decided I could buy a crappy but cheap Dell laptop (my apologies to fans of this inferior system), pay a bit more and buy another ThinkPad (I've been using them for as long as I can remember) or pay even a little more and go for a Mac. Well, I'm sitting here typing away on our new MacBook. It cost a little more upfront but it has been the most no-hassle experience i've ever had. I love this machine! It has all of the little goodies baked in. Everything works smooth and seamless. It looks good. It feels good. Definitely the right choice. Now I have to figure out how to get one of these for work.
