Boom! Welcome to the Mac.

Welcome to the cult. It takes some getting used to, but you'll probably enjoy the change.

As a Delphi user who switched a couple of years ago, I've never regretted it for a second.

We know what we have to do: "Congrats!" I don't know why everyone says that ;)

What's it for? Just for casual surfing?

Load it with ram and a big hard drive and it'll also make a great Windows dev box, even in a VM. :-)

Perfect! We'll be pestering you for software now.

@Rob: that's pretty much what I'm planning to do! I'll make it my primary system, and rely on VMware to enable me to keep developing and using FeedDemon.

@Guy: You might have to pester me for a while - I don't expect to be a decent developer on it for quite some time!

Nick - I would suggest putting the VM on a Firewire disk (an SSD maybe?) - I have my Parallels VM on my MBP's single disk and it can really slow things down...

So does that mean I will have FeedDemon for my iPad?

You just bought a simple computer
It just works. Simply
Perfect verdict

Congrats Nick! I'm pretty sure Santa is bringing me one this year. I really like my PCs but there's something about this computer that really appeals to me.

Oh, I thought you had a new computer but it's just a Mac :-)
Better luck next time!

*Looks to the skies*

Please God, now that Nick has a Mac, please make him produce a native version of FeedDemon for OSX. Pleeeeeeeease.

*Genuflects, etc*

Don't forget to install the developer tools from install disk.. that in itself is like xmas.

Oh! I *can't* *wait* to see what you cook up on that! Just let us know when the first alpha of WHATEVER it is is ready :-D

WHY!!! WHY!!!! WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah - enjoy it while you can... If you're used to developing on a Windows machine then pretty soon you'll smash your own skull in with this device. Heck! Smashing your skull in with the device is better user experience than trying to work with loads of different windows on OSX.

Congrats never the less! I truly enjoy the experience of a mac on the couch. Where I just have a couple of windows open though..

So is that it? You're not going to be developing software for Windows any more (apart from keeping FeedDemon up to date)? Feels like the end of an era, and another nail in the lid of Windows. Are we reaching the stage where we *have* to buy Apple hardware just to get a decent computing experience?

@Charles: I'm not giving up on Windows - I'm just learning a new system, that's all.


My iPad is a very lonely place without FeedDemon. The rss readers for the iPad suck!

Yeah.. Congratulations on your new computer,, Prepare to be Mac"ed! :)
