Wow! I'm am thrilled with this new laptop. Microcenter was out of stock so Ryan, Patrick and I headed to the Apple store at Legacy Village where we received top-notch service by very knowledgeable folks. I've been installing and registering software and hardware since 4 this afternoon. After a break for dinner, chatting with neighbors and a dash to the store for a spare USB cable, I'm finally up and running.
Bonus today was that I also picked up my very own iPod Nano. No more borrowing Danny's or Ryan's. And I can fill it with all my own music. And I'm able to take advantage of some timely rebates, bringing my total purchase about $500 under budget.
This thing is fast, but I'm still getting used to the new look of some familiar programs. And I've got a lot of files to transfer from the old laptop.
One pesky problem: Does anyone know how to set preferences on Dashboard so it doesn't give me the weather in Columbus? That's the nearest city to us in the time zone chart, but I'd really like to have Cleveland weather pop up.
