Very Impressed with Apple Support

On Tuesday my 15" Macbook Pro battery stopped charging. Fearing the worst, I kept it plugged in and let it sit overnight. On Wednesday, it still would not charge, so I started looking online for possible solutions. Finding nothing of much value, I decided to just call Apple.
After spending maybe 20 minutes on the phone with Rob, after doing an SMC reset, Rob set me up to have a new battery shipped to me for free.

Its Official, I've Switched

So I got this Macbook Pro for my birthday, on the 13th of January. Previously, I'd been using primarily Windows XP and OS 9 on my Powerbook 1400.
After using OS X Tiger for two weeks, I've really gotten used to it, and now XP really bugs the $@*& out of me. I've traded Trillian for iChat, Firefox for Safari, and surprisingly, at least to me, most other apps I've gotten used to seem even BETTER on the mac side.

All in all, I'm very glad I asked for a Mac, and not another PC for my birthday.

I got a MacBook Pro!

2.16GHz Core Duo, 1 gig RAM, 128MB VRAM, 120 gig HD.

This is by far the most powerful and expensive computer I have ever used. It is the only computer I have ever gotten new. It is also my very first OS X machine.

All in all, I'm loving it.
