List of (dumb) things to do while waiting for an Intel-based iBook/MacBook

by Todd Ogasawara

I thought/hoped I would have a shiny new Intel-based iBook/MacBook on order by this evening. But, it looks like the latest rumor (along with the April 1 Apple 30th anniversary non-event) fizzled. So, here's my list of other dumb things to wait for while I continue to wait for a MacBook (or whatever it will be called)...

12. Try out all the shareware, demos, and plug-ins I’ve downloaded.

7a. Alternatively, cover my iBook with Care Bear, Blues Clues and My Little Pony stickers and convince myself that's why they're giving me odd looks.

Got mine today! 17" MacBook Pro, 7200prm drive and 2 gig of memory. Now I have to wait 3 hours for the old notbook to sync with the new.

BTW quality seems a bit better. Tolerance on the lid is closer and there are rubber offsets to keep it from wacking the case. Screen looks oddly shorter with about double the bezel on the top edge - but a quick check says it is the same size. Screen is ok, but ever so slightly over bright on lower edge. Hard to tell more than that because I am still installing my old system. There is also a bit of rubber on the hinge (for grip? seems to be questionable).

Why do all the reaons start with "Wait for ... " only to be immeadiately followed by something 1) that will never happen, or 2) that is just random babbling ?
