I bought a Mac

  • MacBook 13″ white
  • Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
  • 2 GB RAM 😛
  • 120 GB HDD
  • And all of the other specs of the MacBook

It will take 3 business days to configure (that RAM upgrade and the HDD upgrade), then 3-7 days to ship.

And I can’t wait.

Just to clarify – this will not mean that I will stop using Linux (I certainly now don’t have the money to buy a new desktop anyway 😀 ). It’s not a ‘switch’ either, it’s expanding my horizons, being proficient in all three operating systems (not only does that look impressive on a CV, it’s fun too) and playing around with new stuff.

Expect a massive load of Mac-related blog posts coming as soon as it arrives (unboxing photos included hopefully) and then the platform balance will probably return to about 45%:45%:15% (Mac:Linux:Windows). Or something like that. 🙂

And I’ll try and get that Safari bug to reproduce. Plus there shouldn’t be future Safari bugs, as I’ll actually be able to test in it!

I can’t wait also to have a play around in Xcode and compare it to MS Visual Studio (the latter being a very good product, so I hope Xcode is mind-blowingly good 😀 ). In fact, I better shut up right now or I’ll be here all night explaining what I’m going to be doing. And annoy everyone.

    argh – i want one! The problem is

    a) I don’t strictly need a macbook, as I already have a really super exciting dell laptop, and

    b) I don’t have the money anyway.

    Looking forward to the apple posts!

    If, for some unknown reason you decide that mac isn’t for you, then please feel free to donate any unwanted mac to moi 😛

    How I wish I could have a mac, no matter how little I would use it, and the fact it would be a waste of money (for me anyway) since I already have a laptop that I never use!
