Thumbs Up

Pro 15?

Nope.  Lowest end 13" one.  Will buy additional RAM separately.

I haven't been an Apple guy since 1982 when the Commodore 64 came out.

I have one of those.  Enjoy!   Grin

My work ride is a 15" MacBook Pro as I slowly leave a dual G5 tower behind (it'll be the family machine shortly but I have to convert to Eclipse/Java1.5/Axis1.4 on the laptop first.)  Posting this from a way old iMac which is about to be scrubbed clean.

I do see Ubuntu in my future though.   Shocked

One of the main reasons I went with a macbook is because of the ability to triple-boot to OS X, Linux, and Windows.
