Techno-porn

Oh, I'm lost.

Today, I got my MacBook Pro. It has nothing installed on it, but oh my goodness is it pretty. So if you don't see me around for awhile, you'll know some reason why.

I've got to say - and I'm sure it's been said before - that Apple could teach the world a thing or two in terms of presentation. Even the stupid styro-foam packing for the computer was pleasantly designed. The package was neat and compact and contained everything I needed in a couple of neat little bundles. The setup was ridiculously easy thus far; it took about three minutes to get Firefox running the way I'm used to it on my other computers.

The test, of course, will be seeing how it runs my PC programs once the emulator is on here, and how well it interfaces with our funky campus network, but right now, I'm teetering on convert.

Ohhhhhh, slaver. Drool. I am _so_ wanting a Shiny New Computer at the moment. Too bad I didn't get a job somewhere ---- now I have to put off all the Shiny for another year. :(

I wish I could have afforded one myself, but man, Macs are expensive. Thankfully the school ponied up for this. I almost pushed for an AirBook, but the lack of am internal CD/DVD player would have made it cool but largely useless to me.

I converted about a year ago. I first I sort of felt like I was drinking the Kool-Aid, but it was well worth it! I wish you a happy future with your new machine.
