Just bought a new Macbook Pro

After years being a Window user, I am now taking the leap over to the other side... I just ordered a Macbook Pro!

I have always liked Macs. I used them at the University in Sweden. For some reason, I never ended up getting one for myself. Well, that just changed. In a week or two, I will have a brand new powerful Macbook Pro - 17 inch with a 7200 RPM hard drive.

Can you believe I've never had a laptop before? It's true. I have been wanting a laptop for a good while now, so I can take it along when I go traveling. Another reason is so that I can just move around more freely in the house. I hate being locked to one dusty computer spot any time I want to update my website or answer emails.

Nice and thin!

A Class Act!

Even the box it comes in is classy!

Yet another reason is for music and video. I can use it to record songs and backing tracks with ease, and I can finally get some good quality videos produced. You see, one of the reasons it is currently taking me long to make videos is because my computer is outdated. It takes forever to work with video.

Why didn't I buy one sooner? Well, good question. I started thinking about a Macbook last fall, then I did research, realized I wanted a Macbook Pro. Then people told me there would be new ones coming out in January, so I've been waiting and waiting. But I'm good now!

Finally, maybe the best reason is because I believe a Mac is superior to a PC with Windows. Why? Because I believe the Mac operating system works better than MS Windows XP or Vista. It makes the machine run faster and more efficiently. I am a power user, and I am quite experienced with Unix and Linux, and the Mac Leopard system suits me well. I find it so much better than any Windows version - window management, keeping apps open in memory without bogging down the whole machine, caching, etc.

So, I would say you can expect much better videos within a few weeks. Likely you will see more backing tracks and other good things being added here as well, thanks to my new Macbook Pro!
