- The new environmentally aware packaging is pretty elegant for cardboard. It was nice not to wrassle with a lot of plastic wrapping.
- I like the magnetic power cord (not new on MacBooks, but new for me).
- I love the backlit keyboard (again, not new for MacBooks, but new for me — I remember when this was just for the highest-end models).
- Choosing an account photo made me smile — I recognized several of the images (flowers) from the early iCards galleries I worked with.
- The screen seems wide, but not very tall.
- The new track pad with one, two, three and four-finger controls looks intriguing.
- I noticed that I will have been a member of .Mac (Mobile Me) for 10 years come Valentine's Day.
- The set-up, including settings and a complete sync of mail, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, via Mobile Me was complete 30 minutes from when I opened the shipping box.
