Blissssss

I just got my new MacBook and it is amaaha-haazing. Fast as lightning, sleek and light. I usually geek over pretty much anything Mac, but I am particularly geeked over this. The new OS comes with a new and improved iMovie that will knock your socks off, (includes Green Screen) not to mention about every other new and improved software that comes standard with the new Macs. And that's just OS software stuff. Have I mentioned how fast this sucker is? On my old PowerBook (6 years old, affectionately. Btw, still NEVER freezes - maybe had to hard restart it in the last 4 years... NEVER. Not ONCE. However...) I could barely run Logic Pro for more than 3 or 4 seconds, at best. All software that I use pretty regularly, even Finale, has just outgrown the old steamer. It was a frustrating sichiation. No longer. This little guy right here is hanging with the G5 tower in the office, possibly faster in some respects.

The aluminum body is oh so light. Pure goodness. That's what this thing is. Pure, predestined goodness.

Plus, I can upgrade to up to 4 gigs of memory... on a MacBook... not even a PowerBook. That is a pretty amazing step up for MacBooks. Now, basically the only difference between the PowerBook and the MacBook is in the graphics card, and about 1000 dollars.

I heart Apple.

Congrats on the new computer. Here's an old article you might get a kick out of.

Too bad you decided to buy now. If you would have waited a little longer, you could have had one of these.
