    Haven't used a Mac since college, got the itch for a new laptop and found myself gravitating toward the Black 2.16 Ghz MB w/2GB ram.

    $1800 bucks later, I walked out of the cleveland Apple store, best computer buying experience ever.

    I was intending to run bootcamp and put XP on it, but my first hour messing with OS X changed my mind. It's just..... awesome. Best PC purchase I've made since my first Sony VAIO.

    It's going to be an awesome travel PC. :wavey:

    Actually, it's $125 extra for a black MacBook w/ the same specs as the white. So not only are you a dick, but you're wrong as well.

    edit: To the OP, you should try VM Fusion to run your windows apps within OS X.

    Shit.

    Didn't know they don't make project or visio for OSX, and that activex doesn't work.

    Dammit. I guess I'll have to bootcamp to xp.

    ActiveX works in Firefox when you install the Mozilla ActiveX plugin.

    You can't just use ssh/sftp/scp in the terminal?

    If I were part of the tech team, sure.

    I'm marketing, all I get is the use of the web interface they provide.

    I'm sure I'm just going to have to get used to OSX, but it's killing my productivity right now.
