    lifetime pc user...i made the switch cuz i was just getting sick of windows instability. i went with the 12" combodrive. im still on the factory 256mb RAM and everyone i have talked to has said i need at least 512 to really appreciate this thing. Where do you guys get your RAM at? i looked at crucial but they seemed kinda expensive...is anywhere else as reputable?? and also what cool programs do i need to get? im using adium for IM and i got office and toast. is there something like windows media player i could get? i have quicktime but it wont fullscreen and it is too picky about file formats

    congrats, i have the same mac but with 512 ram. got it from the apple store when i purchased the powerbook. if i didn't get it there, would've gotten it through crucial.

    as for video's, google 'mplayer osx'. best video player out there for osx

    crucial is over-rated crap.

    www.newegg.com and get Corsair or Kingston.

    There is an official media player 9 available for mac. VLC is also nice. As for ram, I forget what I put in my ibook, but it was a 512 stick I got at compusa.

    Go to MemoryX.com, they are a little cheaper I think.

    Dude, that's like taking a girl needing a magnifying glass to find a little dick. Resize that shit.
