Shiny Goodness

This post has been a long time in the making. Cast your mind back to 2006 – we were an entirely Apple household, with no sign of a nasty PC. Then came the house-moving, the shipping to the other side of the world, the whole Australia fiasco, and then all the coming back.

So on our return, with pretty limited resources, we had to switch to cheap and nasty PeeCees. Well, that time is over. Two days ago I became the proud recipient of a lovely glossy shiny little MacBook.

So – initial thoughts. It’s a little 13″ puppy, with 2.1GHz Core 2 duo processor (I’m still not entirely comfortable with the idea of having an Intel chip in a Mac, but hey-ho), and 4Gb RAM. And it’s lovely. I’m still exploring my way around OSX Leopard – the last release I used was Panther – but so far it’s been elegant, simple and with many shiny aspects.

I can’t believe how quickly I’ve fallen back into the mac way of doing things. More time working with applications than arguing with the O/S can only be a good thing.
