i have a 12" with the superdrive. it owns all. end of story.


the ONLY complaint i have about my mac is that i lost that nice solid but soft sound of the keys after like two days....i'm really picky on my keys, i'll probably get the keyboard replaced here in a month or so.

To keep Mac OS X smooth, this is what I do:
cron tasks 1. Close all apps 2. Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities).
2. Type: sudo sh /etc/daily
Note: Typing "daily" runs tasks normally scheduled for a daily interval. Type "monthly" or "weekly" in place of "daily" to runs tasks scheduled for those intervals.
3. Press Return.
4. Enter your Admin password when prompted, then press Return.
5. Quit Terminal when the task is complete. weekly tasks usually require a longer time to run than monthly or daily.
repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions

The crons are actually not very important. But they do need to be done to rotate out logs. Repair permissions is very important. Kept up, it all but totally ensures no crashes
