I'm writing this on my new MacBook. It's been a slightly tricky transition - some keystrokes I've been using for over a decade no longer work. But I've been very pleased overall. The Mac just works. When I plug in my external firewire hard drive, it doesn't immediately rummage through the entire drive contents and then beg me to tell it what kind of media it is. It just makes the drive immediately and conveniently appear on my desktop. It also works very nicely with PowerPoint demonstrations in class, flipping seamlessly between my monitor and the overhead projector without needing excessive keystrokes or a restart. I'm very, very happy with this little Apple.
