Some good news:
Still getting used to the position of the hard drive (warm!) and the "enter" key being one over from where it is on pismo. Unsurprised that a not-fucking-around install of 10.4.1 and apps eats about twelve gigs. Enjoying the wireless, the form factor, and the weight. This thing is a feather compared to my Powerbook.
Much much love for Ryan Beck-Buysse, who cut me a deal that made a long-overdue and much needed portable upgrade possible.
