New MacBook Pro

I went down to the Apple Store today and picked up a new MacBook Pro thanks to my student discount.  It’s a 13″ model and is definitely a lot more portable than the 17″ I’m replacing.  I also brought home one of the 24″ cinema displays and I’m really impressed with it.  I’m no tech reviewer so I’ll save that for people who make a living at it, but the laptop’s faster and cooler (no more cooked lap!) and the monitor is big and bright.  I’ve got to get the 17″ sold and I’m still waiting for the larger drive I ordered to arrive.  Right now I’ve got about 6 gigs of space free on the current, stock drive.
