Got a new MacBook Pro on Saturday. It was just about time, ya know? I haven't been using a Mac regularly since 1996ish. It feels a bit like coming home again, except that someone completely redecorated the place, and things don't look strangely smaller like they did the last time I visited my old high-school. The last system I used was version 8 or 9? I can hardly remember it, other than it crashed a lot in those days. Now, thanks to Yooniks, not so much. This machine is also the first laptop and first unix box I have owned. I'm liking it on both counts.
As for what I plan to do with this thing, right now it's serving as a portable WoW and web browsing station. I may start lugging it to work, but the daily jostling on the motorbike might be a problem. I installed the developer tools, so I might poke around with them a bit. I plan to do some more blogging (yeah, right!), and I might move all my picture processing over here too. Hmm, maybe I can mooch a discounted copy of Aperture from my friends at Apple.
