Oo pretty good deal, is it just me or does the Penguin avatar move really slow all of a sudden??????

also the laptop has panther not tiger which is the newest OS. That doesn't really matter though but i'm just saying.

well the only big difference is Dashboard, but if you can live without a few extra visual things then there isn't much of a point in upgrading. Lepard is comming out this comming year anyway.
