Not a real movie!
Yup, I've made the switch. Writing from my new macbook. Moo-hooo-hahahahahahahaha!
And people are complaining about the lameness of my "Reality" TV chat spaces...?
I REFUSE to post in this thread.
EGADS! I just did!
I refuse as well!
It's happening again!!!
This site is addicting.
..... Must post ..... every ...... thread!
You know, Derricco, you're the only person who's going to actually post in this chat space. The rest of us are just going to laugh at you.
Enjoying your PC, monkey-boy?
What I want to know is why, six months ago, you counseled me to buy a PC, when you were about to switch to Mac?! I've known for 10 years that Macs wipe the ass of the PC, but noooo.... you said "Buy a Dell..."
That's our Derricco!
He giveth with one hand and he taketh away...
Actually, he does ALOT with one hand.
Now now now girls.... don't get rowdy. They didn't have the intel laptops 6 months ago.
And stop complaining... you liked it then and yo still like it now. Sheesh!
Is it true that you can even saute onions with it?
It gets so damn hot there are certain parts of the laptop I cannot touch for more than 2 seconds before burns set it. The average temeprature of the CPU at peak capacity is close to 80 degress celcius. Combine this fact with an all-metal frame 1" thick and you begin to understand how unbelievable HOT this damn thing gets!!!
Besides that it's kick ass! The Unix underpinings is just pure joy to play with. Pop into the terminal and execute TOP and behold! The entire system at your disposal. Very powerful. I'm using the Mac as a means to learn Java via Netbeans. I tell ya, I'm having total geek-fun.
I'm also appreciating the whole mac philosophy. It all started with my IPod. I was amazed how simple they made it. Now image a whole O/S built around this philosopy. Pretty cool. Installing an application involves dragging a single file into a folder. That's it. No registry, no million DLLs, no crap or BS. Pretty sweet!
Ok, the heat isn't great. I write it off by saying it's designed for cold environments.
Well, it only took me 4 years to heed Derek's advice, but MAN, the Mac is waaaaaaay better than my cruddy old PC. It actually makes me feel superior and hoity-toity to the rest of you clowns. And pretentious! Suddenly, those stupid Justin Long commercials make total sense!
Whad ya get?!
There is only one "Mac" for me.
I got the basic Macbook, white, 13 inch screen. It's the cheapest model, but still comes with loads of memory, programs, applications.....very user-friendly for us non-compu-dorks.
Sorry, chumps...until Apple becomes less "trendy" and can produce a notebook for LESS than $4992.76, it remains only toys for Printing Company Executives, Mountain Hopping public employees and art-f@gs with too much disposable income...
Not that I'm TOTALLY Appleless: I only recently could afford an 8GB iPod Touch...go me!
Mountain Hopping public employees?!
For the record, I don't have a Mac. I'm still running a 2005 Dell, and unlike Mitch's unfortunate experience, mine is running just fine. I am hoping to get another 18 months to 2 years out of it before I replace it.
Admittedly, a Mac is a distinct possibility. But I will see what the landscape looks like in 2012... (presuming the world hasn't come to an end...)
However, I did indeed do a bit of mountain hopping this weekend. Banged off two more Adirondack peaks on Friday: Haystack and Basin. That was a 15.5 hour, 30 km, 4,700 foot climb.
My apologies, Mr. PubEmp - I thought the last time I was at your appartment, I saw a Mac.
My own personal Dell is coming up on its 10th anniversary with NO replacement in sight...YAY!
As for banging twin peaks...I have no comment.
Look, my piece-o-crap Dell served me well for 4 years, but enough was enough. As for disposable income, I got the cheapest model AND because of recent home repairs that have inconvenienced my quality of life for two weeks, I was able to get my rent reduced to less than half for this month (!!!), thus helping me afford the Mac. You see? Karma works sometimes.
But ya wanna know what's really surreal? Apparently Dr. J. King has an iPad! (unless he's full of shit, which is highly likely)
