...Everyone taking pics of their new arrival powerbook coming out of it box, and every single process of opening gets a new snapshot as if your new adopted Korean baby had just arrive? It was just an observation, but I noticed a lot of these kinds pics arounds here. Am i the only one who just ripped the box open and took the laptop out?

I can imagine the excitment that people feel when they get a new multithousand dollar piece of equipment, but I just took it out too.

I tore mine out of the box as soon as I got it. Now, I did make my wife appreciate the fine lines and attractive design but I didn't take pictures of my laptop and force them on someone else.
