off the top of my head... 12" 1.33Ghz 512mb RAM 40gb HD ...and all the usual stuff. Bought earlier this year in march. So far on my christmas list is- (more like to-buy/do list) 1gb ram (crucial has them for 150, know of any cheaper?) Microsoft office bundle and depending on how strong the airport extreme is an antenna booster so I can get WiFi from anywhere. Anything I need to know? A friend has a 17" G5 that I play with all the time so I know I like the OS X. I'm stoked. Sorry it's not the latest and greatest in Apple design but it will work for what I need it to do so please no bashing on how it's outdated.
