My First Apple Macbook

Ever since I made “the switch” last year, I’ve become more and more enamored with Apple products. As a former lifelong Apple-hater, I now see the error in my ways, and am really enjoying my new toys. Since my Acer laptop apparently decided on it’s own that I don’t actually need use of it’s screen, rendering it useless as a laptop, I of course had to buy the new Macbook.

  • 4GB RAM
  • 500GB 7200RPM Seagate Hard Drive
  • Glorious Aluminum Shell

I haven’t decided exactly what to do yet with the Acer, which isn’t even that old.  I thought about turning it into my new VPN server, but the single non-Gigabit NIC is annoying.  Also, CentOS seems to not agree too well with the machine.  Maybe it will become a media machine for a TV?  We’ll see what transpires…

    Why don’t you just put Ubuntu on your old laptop?

    4GB RAM – not too bad for a laptop! I only got 512M on my Lifebook.

    I don’t know why you’d hate the Mac for so many years and somehow get won over!

    I’ve made a living training people how to use PCs but have had a Mac at home since I was 14 and grew up playing on Unix machines.

    The current Mac seems to combine all three systems: Unix underneath, Windows app support when necessary, and the beautiful Mac interface.

    I’m on my first Mac laptop in 16 years after an iLamp for about 7 years. Amazing computers. Definitely makes it hard to get out of bed some mornings when everything’s on the Mac.

    I had the same problem. I bough a mac and a cheap monitor for the broken notebook. Now I have a shiny new MacBook pro and my three year old has a desktop.
