Dreams eventually come true and I finally converted to Macs. I still have my 5-year old HP Compaq nx9005 with Win XP and Ubuntu running to my side for various tasks (like verifying the web sites I work on in IE), but all my ongoing work and music experiments shifted to a great Macbook Pro MB134 from the Apple’s latest line.
APPLE MacBook Pro MB134, 15.4”, Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 (2x 2.5GHz), 2x1024MB, 250GB, DVD±RW DL, nVidia GeForce 8600Md GT 512MB, 15.4” WXGA+ (1440x900), LED-TFT, DVI, Gigabit-LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, 2xUSB2.0, ExpressCard, WebCam, OSX 10.5 “Leopard”
There’s not much to say other than that I, as all migrants, feel like a huge army of nurses taking care of me all the time; so smooth Leopard’s interface and laptop hardware are. All these Spaces, Dashboards, Expose, Stacks, iCals, Frontrows and others feel like from a future. Even Rails, Apache, and PHP5 are pre-installed!
