Macbook Pro


Well, I guess this is kinda older news, but it is just pretty necessary that it receives a post of it’s own.  After years of trying to fight the trend, I’ve pretty much turned to the dark side.  Yesterday was the one week anniversary of Dave and I getting our refurbished 15" Macbook Pro‘s to replace the old Dell laptops.

I grew up on PC’s.  My friend Brian has tried to convince me for years that Macs were the way to go, but i just wouldn’t listen.  Over time, though, I slowly began to realize that espescially for the type of stuff I like to spend my time doing – music, video editing, pictures – Macs really were the way to go.  Just a few weeks ago, I was talking computers with some friends and out of my mouth slipped the phrase, "Apple has definitely cornered the market on the ‘cool factor.’"  Rachel looked at me in disbelief and commented on how far I had come since she first met me.

And so now, I guess I’m officially a Mac user.  And it’s hard to admit it, but I have to say, I love my new Macbook Pro.  I’ve now moved out of the denial phase.  The only thing left to complete the conversion would be to actually spend my own money on a Mac and get one for our home.  It will be a while before we can afford that, so in the mean time, I guess I’ll just have to tolerate our home Dell as we consistently restart it in hopes that it might actually do what it’s suposed to.  Sorry for the long post to say I got a new laptop.  I’m done now.
