new toys


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.
