    Congrats, that's a sweet setup. I was considering one at one point in time, but then I look at my PC desktop, and all it does is serve my torrents and such. I never use it. I <3 my MBP though. I switched and never looked back :hs:

    Not to put a damper on your purchase but you are aware these will almost ceratinly be replaced in 2 weeks, and that the current technology in them is 18 months - 2 years old?
