Ahh, I Feel SO Speedy

POST #    512


Mmm...new computer.

Just like the advertisement for the G5, I have been blown away. Not that I've really done anything that has taxed the system, but I feel like it's going fast none the less.

Everything about the computer was great (well, except for the price). From the packaging, to the looks, even the smell. I'm obviously crazy, but so far it has been a great experience. As soon as I get Panther (I've ordered the upgrade) and a high-speed internet connection (Thursday), then I will be set.

To break the computer's maiden, I watched the original version of The Italian Job.

Another note about the computer - it is really really heavy. Or I'm really weak. Possibly a combination of the two.

The monitor is cool too. There are two buttons on it. The right one turns the computer on or off and the left one brings up the monitor preferences. And they both light up when touched. Oh how I love bells and whistles.

This is the second time that I have felt that the computer I purchased from Apple was the coolest one they had. My Powerbook G3 with the bronze keyboard was the first. When I got my first Mac, the Powerbook 190cs, it was already dated.

Things to get used to:
- A new keyboard.
- No more trackpad.
- 70 GB hard drive
- Speed. Speed. Speed.


So bright (the monitor - the photo is obviously dark).
