Its been one of those weeks. My laptop died a few weeks back and despite updating it to Windows 7, repeated surgery for new drivers, disk defragmentation, memory parity checks and so on, it just kept freezing.
So I had to buy a new one.
The big debate then – another PC or go the Apple Mac route.
Well, Jay’s Dell has been plagued with issues from Windows Vista, my Sony was the same, so I decided to spend a few dollars more and get a MacBook Pro. 15 inch screen.
and very shiny it is too. I’m not totally sold on the large clickable touchpad and there are some things the operating system does that I still need to get my head around, but apart from that- it just works. No crashes, freezes, complaints or anything. It goes to sleep when asked and wakes up on cue. And the battery lasts forever. A few hours of surfing and stuff only used 25% of the battery. Very impressive.
So it gets my vote for the time being.
