Today, my first ever iBook arrived (I ordered it last Wednesday, if there wasn’t the weekend in between, I’d have gotten it even faster.), and so far, it totally kicks ass. I bought the 12.1" one with a 60 GB disk for even more music/code/other cool stuff. :-)
It is just the right size, and the features and look are simply amazing. And you don’t hear a thing.
I have never used Mac OS X before, but after toying around a bit with it, it really looks nice and usable (heck, Expose rocks).
So far, I only found on thing that turned be off a bit: The keyboard,
although of good quality has a quite, umm, twist^Winteresting
keylayout. Why the pipe symbol
| is Alt-6, for example, someone
really should explain to me…
After reinstalling it for maximum customization (a hint ThreeDayMonk gave me), I think I’m going to spend some days to adopt it my working style.
BTW, I called it
lilith because my (main) box is dubbed
and there are nice, medieval paintings where Lilith (mythologically
Adam’s first wife) gives Eva the Apple. :-)
Of course, such an event needs to be documented photographically:
