I've spent only a few hours with my new shiny MacBook Pro. OK, so it is very fast, the OS is one big eye-candy and everybody knows that.
I want to emphasize a number of simple issues, just for fun...
It just works. Out of the box. I turned it on and it starts with a registration process. For that you need to be online. I have a wireless network in my apartment. It immediately found it, I entered the password, and that was the last time I had to deal with my network ever since. I just remember the agonies of connecting my ThinkPad T41 to my Wifi... Sometimes it worked, sometimes not so much. But on my Mac it just works ever since. You boot it, it's up. You don't need to worry about it.
And Bluetooth... People who have PCs with Bluetooth and try to connect them to their mobile phones in order to download some pictures can share the grief. The drivers are just horrible. It's a matter of trial and error. On my ThinkPad I had to install it about 10 times until it decided to work. It worked on occasion, until one day it decided not to work anymore. On my home PC, I have a Bluetooth dongle. It worked for about 5 minutes and not it does not. On the Mac - it was just a few clicks of pairing my device and that's it.
Sharing data and a printer with my PC was a 1 minute job.
And don't get me started on FrontRow... It is just soooo cool. I connected my digital camera, it was recognized immediately. I downloaded all the pictures in a click. I took the remote that came with the machine and after two more clicks I had a slide show of my pictures with a soundtrack. And everything is just there, out of the box. No installation of setup needed.
I'm going to enjoy this machine.
