OSX is about the only good thing mac's got going for them IMO.
Yea, well that and the iPOD, iTunes, Thier new browser, and thier new system that smokes and PC on the market. And the fact most decent graphic software started on macs due to clarity. IE photoshop
But other that that, yea.
Apple allways built a better product. It is just more expensive and you will only ever deal with apple.
Congrads dude. drop me a line some time. I hope all is worked out now. Take care and enjoy your new baby.
