    Mine has to be the side click buttons that show all pages open on your cmputer. It makes finding your open docs so easy.

    What is yours?

    well, if i had to narrow it down to just one, it's the power management on my macbook. when I'm done with it i close the lid, wanna use it again, jst open it up and bang, it's there....not fucking around with hibernation or standby like windows boxes....oh and take into account that sleep works 99.999% of the time....

    All in all tho, there's a ton of stuff that I like over any other notebook out there, including the MBP's

    woah... wait... you're running your applications from the dmg files? you know you're supposed to drag them out or install them right? that's like running programs from a zip file...

    i really like how quickly i can get things done using an assortment of keyboard shortcuts

    not really a feature, but i love how my macbook can encode an xvid of dvd under an hour. my desktop takes over 2.5 hours and the audio tracking is always off, making it worthless

    You should right click an app and select View Package Contents
    Also, when you said .dmg, they are all .app

    For me it has to be two finger a rolling (coming from a TiBook to a MBP). Have other things that get me on my desktop.

    everything.

    not really a feature but just how easy it is to use and how little can go wrong with it.
     
  22. Dealing with installing programs on windows boxes at work, I love how easy it is to install/uninstall programs on my mac.

    Thats probably my number one favorite part about macs.. Everything just makes more sense and is way less complicating it seems.
