Awesome isn't it? Almost like it was breathing! If you stare at it long enough, you may find yourself reaching out and stroking the smooth surfaces and crooning soft lullabies.

Yeah, its normal.

But they are easily obtainable (in various languages) from Apple's support site (in PDF format). You ain't got no manual, cause you ain't looked for it.

Download a PDF file of the manual from Apple's website.

If you didn't get the manual, box, and associated wires and plugs with it I hope you got it very cheap.
