After several months of consideration I finally went out and picked up the 15-inch, 2.33GHz MacBook Pro. I have needed a new computer for awhile now and I've been thinking about a MacBook Pro, but my Christmas present from my wife finally pushed me over the edge. She got me an Mbox 2 for music recording, but even with this awesome piece of hardware my old desktop was hopelessly underpowered.
I haven't done any development on the MacBook yet, I've been too busy playing with the Mbox and Pro Tools, but I plan on going through the ACME guide this weekend and getting this thing set up for ColdFusion development. I also need to get Windows XP set up with Boot Camp/Parallels. I want to be able to use this computer for gaming so the new Boot Camp support in the latest Parallels beta is just what I was looking for.
And while this may be a little premature, so far I've found the process of "switching" pretty painless. Don't get me wrong, I'm still trying to adjust to some of the differences between Windows and OS X -- I can't tell you how many times I've tried to press ctrl+c -> ctrl+v, or how many times I've found myself asking "How do I..." -- but for the most part things on the Mac have just worked. I was completely amazed when I first went to print something and the Mac automatically found my HP printer on the wireless network and set it up without me doing a thing.
I know I've got a long way to go to becoming a Mac power user, but I'm looking forward to it. If anyone has any suggestions for getting up to speed on the Mac and OS X please let me know.
