[editors note: once I got my MacBook Pro, I've been swimmingly happy, and forgot to check my spelling and hit the 'Publish' button.. so here you are, 2 months late.]
It's been four months of torture using my HP compaq nc6000. Torture because every time something comes up and I find out, with a moments notice, that I need to record a seminar or play a mpeg.... I go crazy. I have to pull my hair while I find out stupid things about Windows. Stupid things like the fact that pluging a line input into the the jack labled "line input" shows up as a "microphone" in Audacity (even though it has a line input selection). Stupid things like how the hardware is so crappy it can't play video on a second display device, though everything else works fine on the second display device.
Those were all reasons why I purchased my 17" PowerBook back in august a few years ago. It served me faithfully untill I dropped it of a table. (oops) Now they are the same reasons I purchased my MacBook Pro
My windows days are finally behind me....... again!
I recieved a call from Apple today letting me know my MacBook Pro 15" 2ghz had come in, and I was as joyous as Jess was yesterday when I surprised her with a fixed car.
So what did I do my first night? Install the prerequesite software, and rsync my data from the win2k machine I've been taking home from work every day.
In order of installation
: it actually worked for 2 weeks after that with a bent hinge; the laptop just didn't close all the way; then the logic board died and it wouldn't boot up. Yes i could have gotten it fixed; but i wanted to wait and spend my $$ on a MacBook pro
