It's fast, it's slick, it rocks.


This thing is fast, though it took about 3 reboots for all teh snappy to emerge, it's built really well, much better than my iBook was (no creaks), the display is huge, gorgeous and bright, the keyboard is taking me a while to get used to (Thank the iGods that Apple make it easy to disable the caps lock key or this entire thing would be shouted), it's warm but *not* hot (I got the 5200rpm HD for this reason alone), Magsafe is just about sensitive enough to avoid catastrophe, but magnetic enough to not come out when you don't want it to, the built in iSight doesn't seem to be at the optimum angle for me while I'm sitting on the sofa, though it improves if I pop the computer on a desk.


Rosetta is fast, quick and transparent (I have a tv usb stick and the app it uses isn't a universal binary, yet it runs perfectly without sucking down CPU), although iPhoto is currently choking on my library so I'm calling AppleCare tomorrow to sort that out.


All in all, I'm a very happy consumerist bunny.
