Mac OS X Ten years ago, to the day. March 24, 2001, the first official released version of Mac OS X went on sale, for USD 129. It was a massive step up and a massive step down from MacOS 9 at the same time - technically way more advanced, but clearly still in its infancy and pretty much unusable. Kernel panics, crashes, incredibly slow, and lacking many key features. It was so bad, in fact, that Mac OS X 10.1 was released as a free upgrade. Of course, we geeks know that Mac OS X is technically a lot older, but alas, let's just celebrate these 10 years. Maybe Lion will finally bring a usable non-crashing Finder!

Yeah, I'm really really happy with it so far. I could have gotten some other ones, like the samsung 9, but they were outside my budget, lol. How often can you say that about a Mac? The only upgrade I did was the 4gb ram. The cpu wasnt worth it and I can upgrade the ssd later.
