My trusty old HP laptop died. Well, it caught a virus, and then died. My dad was able to rescue it by re-installing, but I decided to bid my 3.5-year-old laptop farewell.
I have several very persuasive Mac-using friends. Upon hearing that I needed a new laptop came a flurry of comments on my Facebook wall raving about their MacBooks, and how I should get one.
There were a few factors, one of the big ones being that the “Buy a Mac and get a free iPod Touch” promo was still on, that caused me to eventually take the plunge.
So now, I did it! I made the leap. I’m a (brand-new) Mac user, and I’m proud of it! I got the 13″ MacBook Pro, with 160G of HD and 4G of RAM. 🙂 I decided to splurge on the extra RAM. 😀
*The screen is amazing. So much sharper/clearer/crisper than my old one. I already want the 24″ LED Cinema Display! And it’s so fast! The time needed for photos to render in Lightroom is significantly cut down 😀 😀 😀 *
