My Bite of the Apple

So I got one of these ...

The new MacBook (aluminum), my first Mac. Stunning little bugger. If the price was competitive with Windows boxes, these things would take over the world. Slick -- the only word for it. Leopard (OS X 10.5.5) is rock solid and smooth as the glass display.

Macs, of course, have some of the same problems with software that Windows systems do: applications don't always work as advertised, some are faster than others. I've loaded OpenOffice 3.0 (the real Mac version), which also just came out. Debating about Adobe CS4. Firefox is okay on it, but Safari is faster.

I'm very impressed. Now, if I could find something that I really need it for ... Maybe I'll write a novel.
