      Blue-Ray on a computer monitor with no surround sound while sitting in an uncomfortable office chair for 2 hours = FAIL.

      Yup, 1080p doesn't matter if your screen is under 42"

      Only thing preventing me from upgrading now is that the latest version of Logitech Control Center doesn't function correctly (at all) on 10.6. Can't connect to the mouse. Mouse still works, however all of the side buttons are dead. SteerMouse works well as an alternative

      Haha... for some reason my Mighty Mouse has worked fabulously for months. No wheel troubles or anything. so I'm sticking with it.

      And +1 for can't wait to upgrade.

      Hey, I wouldn't mind being able to still play my blurays on the go so that I don't have to buy them as DVDs as well...
