I'm quite looking forward to using my Mac tomorrow at a proper desk with a decent internet connection. That'll allow me to get mail synched properly, make sure all my helper apps are installed and really see whether it works for me when sitting at a properly positioned desk with a decent chair.
Current irritations are hot keys being needed to right click, sharp edges cutting into wrists when using it in cramped conditions, lack of status lights on the ethernet port and OpenOffice continually crashing. Page down hotkey doesn't work in Firefox and OpenOffice either, which is infuriating.
The lack of page down functionality is a killer, even if it sounds petty. It's something I use all the time when scanning large docs or online documentation.
After a few days in a normal office I'll have a better idea of whether it's right for me or not. Tomorrow I'll put Windows XP on it as well. If OS X is still not for me, I'll give it a go with XP for a bit. If things are still annoying the hell out of me, I'll see if I can swap it with someone in the office who has a Toshiba Portege...
