Neil, I have to agree with you on boot/shut down times. It doesn't take very long to boot and takes even less time to shut down. One of my classes allows laptops, so for my laptop to boot in less than a min, is awesome. Quick shut down times mean I can pack up and leave quicker, lol.
I got my FIRST apple product at the end of aug this year.
It's an ipod touch 4th generation 8 gbs(well it's only 6.4 after iOS 5 updates).
And I LOVE it !
I love apps, music(importing my music from cds is great), camera's good for me.
HAha I came on this thread, expecting to find creative recipes people have used with apples...I was about to share my curried apple soup recipe LMAO. Well THAT wouldnt make much sense
I do love my ipod tho! :D Best mp3 player ever.
