My friend and fellow geek Ms. Eclectic turned me on to some really cool software that, alas, is Mac-Only. I’ve been a pc baby since dirt, and I resisted, feeling like I was somehow crossing to the dark side, but Windows Vista scares the hell out of me, and I do recognize that Apple has long been the leader when it comes to tools for writing and publishing, so I talked to BossGuy and he fronted me the money for a 15″ MacBook. I got the mid-range model, with an 80 gig hard drive, and added an extra gig of RAM, and about a week after I placed the order, it showed up at my door.
I’m not using it as much as I should, because so much of my stuff is still on my Vaio laptop and my self-built desktop (which, I must add, has a cool green mod-light), but for the most part, I do like it. The box was cute, well, designed, and something to save. The laptop itself still strikes me as a bit toy-ish, but I’m getting over that. I do like the fast response time, and the hardly ever having to reboot.
