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.

Waiting on Forever

It has almost been 10 years since I’ve had a new laptop. 10 years is about the normal time span I wait to buy new computers. My old laptop has been failing for sometime now, but I’ve holding out waiting  on Apple to upgrade the MacBook Pro series.  Since I can’t wait forever for the release I think I will go with a MacBook for now. I like everything about the computer except for just having one USB-C port and the fact you have to use dongles for everything. Actually I’ve have always had iBooks and MacBooks so this wouldn’t be my first one. I would be upgrading from a Mid 2007 ( white) MacBook to a new Space Gray MacBook. Just don’t know yet which spec I will go with.



The iPhone

I’ve been waiting patiently till Verizon got the iPhone. In June I finally got to upgrade my cell. Really did think about getting a Droid at one point, but after using one I liked the iOS platform better. I guess I’ve grew accustom to iOS features since owning an iPod touch.
I know it’s rumored an iPhone5 will be out this fall along with iOS5, but couldn’t wait till then. I’m very happy with my iPhone4 and can’t wait for iOS5 to come out.
