    The vid card on the macbook is only 64megs according to apple, but since it's onboard is it possible to dedicate more ram to it to have like 128-256meg vid card or apple doesn't let you do that? I searched on the net but couldn't find anything regarding that. and if possible, where would you change it. like in bios on a pc?

    Are all these people with new Macs for christmas getting them from their parents or SO, or what?

    That's a pretty large gift to receive for christmas. Not too mention that it's probably only one of several other gifts they'll receive.

    I just got the same one too. I was looking at my credit card statement the other day and about had a heart attack after seeing the balance. Then I remembered that macbooks aren't free. :o

    My little bro is getting a 17" imac for Christmas, (the version with the x1600 in it, no integrated nonsense going on here.)

    I'm getting him a set of Logitech Z-2300's to set it off for him. :hs:

    I got my macbook pro as a chirstmas gift from my parents, but I went refurbd so total after ACPP was about 2000, and then my parents and I split it 40:60 (I was the 40).

    That being said, the only other thing I'm getting for Christmas is a new Snowboard coat :big grin:.
