    Got one of the updated MacBook Pro's today. :eek3:

    My first personal mac EVER.

    When I was like 5 or 7 or so I had an Apple computer but I just played games on it. :mamoru:

    So onto the dirty nudes & specs:


    15" widescreen, LED backlit
    2.2 GHz Core 2 Duo (Santa Rosa)
    nVidia 8600M GT 128MB
    2GB 677 RAM
    120GB HDD

    :big grin: :big grin: :big grin:

    dude if you want to put it actually on your lap get a 15" for sure. even the 15 is plenty big for me. but then again i'm kinda small at least width wise.

    6'1 @ 165 lbs and it fits fine. it's probably about 12" or 13" wide i dunno. check them out at the store.

    however the company i bought it from will only give me 1200 for the trade up so i may sell it privately.

    Im new to mac's so I have 2 questions..

    Do they offer the macbook with backlit keys?

    And, when leopard is released. Could it be loaded onto a macbook that currently has an other system on it?

    1) no, unfortunately

    2) when a new version of OS X comes out, it gives you 3 options.

    a)Erase + Install (what i do usually b/c it gives you a clean feeling)

    b)Archive + Install (saves all your music movies apps and just installs a new system + system folder)

    c) Upgrade (just updates all the appropriate components to leopard)
