New MacBook

I got a new MacBook last week, and it is FAST. From start-up, to login, to opening apps, to using apps, it is blindingly, blisteringly fast. I’m very excited about my new purchase.

It’s a black, 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook with 2 GB RAM and 120 GB HDD.

Here is a Flickr set of the unpacking photos.

Unfortunately, there’s an issue with the sound output when external speakers are plugged in. I posted on the discussion boards about my issue, but I don’t seem to have much of a response. I’m going to call Apple when I get back to school over the weekend and see what I can do about a replacement. I have a dead pixel on the screen, too, right out of the box, and that’s just plain old annoying. Other than that, this machine is great! I suppose I’ll have to start looking for a new use / home for my Powerbook G4 now.
