New Toy


I have a new computer!  My first since 2000.  That is pretty crazy.

It is a laptop: the ultrachic Apple MacbookPro.  I'll attach a link or a pic soon.   It has a 17 inch display and a 2.5 GHz dual Intel CPU with 2 GB of RAM.  

In short, it is pretty wicked.

I've been up and running within minutes.  Really excited.  I've been looking for quite awhile now, and have known that I would join the autonomous collective known as the Mac community for some time.  Many blog readers use Macs and there is a strong faction in the geek community at work and elsewhere.  At those Java conferences, the saturation is about 100% among the presenters.

It's really fun to play with a new computer and OS.  It reminds me of the days in the 1980s with the Commodore 64 etc.

As a long time user of Apple gear (I was doing it when it WASN'T cool!) let me be the first to welcome you to the twenty-first century. :-)

All I can say is thank goodness the MacBook Pro is okay after the earthquake.

Sounds pretty sweeeet.

Thanks guys...

I haven't had much time to play with it yet. Busy week and exhausted from drama (see above post)
