I couldn’t wait until late next week to get the MacBook and since I have to pay sales tax anyway I went ahead and saved a few bucks on shipping and picked up a MacBook Pro over at the University Village Apple store. I didn’t get any additional RAM, it comes with 512MB, since I can get it cheaper online and install it myself. I also was very close to picking up a Mac mini or iMac for my wife too since all she really uses it for is Word and internet. However, I figured I would wait a bit and maybe get her one later for her birthday or something. I also picked up the discounted .mac package since it looks like a nice easy way to backup the MacBook and more.
Stay tuned for some posts in the Geek.com Labs and here on my blog. I took some initial box opening pics and will post them tonight. I am charging up the unit right now so I can use it after work.
