I don't know if it counts, but I just upgraded to 2 GB of RAM and now this baby is acting like it should :D.

Hey! That's nice! I too plan to purchase the second gig of RAM for my MacBook, but it will have to wait until the end of holidays - shops are almost empty at the moment :)

well, i was gonna buy this, which gets highly rated on ilounge . but after looking around, i'm going with that harmon kardon thing. it's only $80 on amazon. i was at best buy looking at it, to make sure i liked it and that the control unit wasn't too big to fit on my console. the sales guy said that they install these for $50! i said, "$50?" he said, "yes." "$50 to install one of these?" "yup." i still have a $100 amazon gift certificate that i used for this. so the whole thing is gonna cost me $50. (prays that best buy doesn't **** up my car...)

that whole thing about making a cable was before i really knew what was going on. twas newbie talk...

I guess I can brag about something. :P

I'm a proud owner of a Silver 2GB iPod Nano (2nd Genertation). My girl got it for me for Christmas and I recieved it on Wednesday. I thank her very much, although it was painful for me to accept the gift since it is on the expensive side. So, I'm very appreciative. (And I feel cheap because I spent only $75 on her gifts.) I guess it's the thought the counts. :P

A perfect little buddy since I don't need a heavy load of music by my side when I travel. :)

My kids got Mac lappies to take to college a couple years ago. My son is in computer engineering at Purdue and we had a little talk over winter break......my Macbook will arrive next week!! (happy)

We also picked up a Mini around Thanksgiving that's hooked to a 42" DLP. Sorry Bill but XP is my last Windows OS.......(feels even better than when we let go of AOL in '97)

I've ordered my very first iMac today!

iMac Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 GHz

1 GB RAM

160 GB Hard Drive

128 MB ATI Radeon x1600

8x SuperDrive

Mac OS X "Tiger"

I've been a fan of the iMac and OS X for quite some time, but never had the cash to buy one for myself until now. The best part is that it will only take about a day for it to be shipped to my house. :D

After begging my wife I've finally managed to purchase a iMac. It's not a new one but I got it nice and cheap.

It's only got OSX 10.1 installed, and has a 40gb HD, only 256mb, but it's a start.

As soon as I get my feet I'll submit a SS.

It's going to take a week to wipe the smile off my face.
