My New Laptop!

Back in July, I dumped a glass of water on my increasingly slow MacBook. At the time, I thought I was up-ending glass containing supplements onto my hand. Alas, I was actually holding the glass with a cup and a half of water. Since then, I’ve been making do with Paul’s very old MacBook Pro. (I’m pretty sure he bought it in 2007!) As it happened, that wasn’t a bad deal, since the older MacBook Pro was actually speedier than my newer MacBook.

I have an iMac too, but I often like to work on the laptop at home, and I definitely need a laptop for when I’m travelling. Plus, it’s been rather unpleasant to work in my makeshift office since the havoc wreaked by the leak in our shower. (Construction is still very much ongoing Chez Hsieh.)

So, I’ve been wanting to get a new laptop for a while now. I delayed, however, because I didn’t really need an upgrade while I wasn’t doing much travelling. But this spring, I’ll be travelling quite a bit, so I thought it was time to buy.

Here’s what I ordered:

I’m super-excited about it… and it’s already been shipped! It’s supposed to arrive on February 4th.

    You should put up a Referly link to this on Amazon.

    I had this laptop for 3 years and loved it. I am not on the Mac Pro 13″ and it’s good too, but I still have a soft spot for the amazing Mac Air. So incredibly svelte. Anyone getting a laptop should at least try one out.

    I have one too. Screen resolution is disappointing. Probably should have gotten the 13 in MBP retina. But nevertheless I do like it a lot, especially for the six hour battery life.

    I’ve never been able to justify budgeting a laptop, but I’ve found Mac desktops very satisfactory. It’s primarily that I greatly prefer the Mac interface to the Windows one; I experience the Mac interface as an integrated whole, whereas the Windows interface seems like multiple scattered parts whose interrelationships are hard to grasp. But I also have found Apple hardware striking reliable, and Apple technical support is amazingly easy to deal with. I trust you’ll enjoy the new laptop.
