Two weeks of ctrl-clicking... that's rich! =D
Took a while to get used to only having one mouse button, but I actually prefer this now to a two button mouse.
Your mouse does have 2 buttons...
Lukus, I'm gonna mess things up a bit for you. I'm doing what deem's advocating and I'm not too happy about my laptop as a desktop machine.
I used to have a G5 iMac which I loved, but decided to switch to an MBP when they were released. Got a screen for it, kept my wireless keyboard and mouse and thought it wouldn't be much of a difference. I'm not in love yet though... and it's been two years. =(
For some reason I just can't find peace with the solution. The fugly screen cables bother me, and the fact that I can't "tuck away" the laptop means I've lost a portion of desk space I was used to when having my iMac. There's a part of my desk which is just dead now. What was once a clean and spacious desk is now a flurry of cables (USB hub, power to laptop, power to screen, screen cable to laptop, firewire to external HD).
With the iMac I had one single effing cable. One! =)
Also, I need to keep it open (as in not folded together) or I'm afraid the heat will drive it nuts.
I need to choose which system to boot (XP or OS X) on the laptop screen, it's not displayed on the "external" screen. Granted, if I just want OS X it's automatically selected without delay, it's only when I boot to XP I need to do this. Still it's an annoyance.
When the iMac gets some hard ware loving in the graphics card department, I'm going to be all over it. The current card is a bit pap. Not expecting cutting edge tech in something which is essentially a laptop - but I at least want something better than the previous generation in all accounts. The iMac of today is unfortunately a bit LESS powerful than the previous generation when it comes to 3D graphics (ie games).
I'm not too happy with the screen on the laptop either, the viewing angle is nowhere as good as a stand-alone screen. The screen can not be tilted backwards far enough to get a good angle when using it at a low coffee table, in a lounge or similar. I don't even think you can put it in a 135 degree angle...
Bear in mind that I've got the first batch of MBPs though... surely improvements have been made.
Here's my tip. Go to your nearest Apple peddler and check out the laptops. You might very well come to the conclusion I'm full of shit and a whiney bastard. =)
Edit: Fuck me, mondo post! =(
