The story of the space grey MacBook

I decided long before the new MacBook pros were out I couldn’t wait any longer and just got the very best spec MacBook. Sure it isn’t a workhorse vs the MacBook Pro, but I really won’t be using it that much.  I have another dedicated machine I use for everyday work. I’ve had it for a couple of months now and I really have enjoyed it. I didn’t think I would like the keyboard, but it’s ok for browsing and doing light stuff… If I need to use the laptop to do work then I usually carry a bluetooth mouse and keyboard with me. I do mostly only coding work on it so the laptop actual fairs quite well for that.

I also like the portability of the computer as it’s super thin and light. I really don’t like the idea of all the dongles, but so far I haven’t had to use any. Though I would love to set it up with a monitor at some point to use it as a second machine for simple tasks at the office.

On the app I do keep track of how much water  drink and physical activity other than walking/running or cycling. Read More
