    btw...the laptop I'm loading this on is fairly new...Dell XPS 15Z...i7 processor, 8G memory, solid state HD...

    no reason the hardware should cause a problem

    you can't get much better than that (although I would use 16GB - more memory is better and its cheap). the only thing you have to check after the install is that file indexing is turned off. the install is supposed to do that automatically but you have to confirm it otherwise the index routines will burn out the SSD.

    Wow dude, you must be on a super slow connection; mine downloaded very quickly...just a few minutes. I downloaded it as an ISO which turned out to be 2.69 GB.

    I downloaded the lastest version of the Mac OS this week, and it took like 4-5 hours. I don't know why. I thought us Maccies were better.

    I switched from Windows to Mac in 1999...I can never imagine dealing with all that.
