Do we really need this? I still like to use a mouse and I still love my Macbook Pro even though it failed on me a thousand times (faulty hard drive, replaceable under warranty).
iPad is just like an iPod on steroids. Trust that Apple will convince you that you need this gadget.
Price: $699 for 32 Gb and $899 for 64 Gb.
I purchased a Macbook Pro recently and so far I am loving it. However, there are some things that I miss from Windows or IBM-based PCs:
- Page Up / Page Down keys
- Home / End keys
- Double-click to maximize window (On a Mac, this minimizes the window and I get killed by this all the time so I just disabled it.)
- Visual Themes! (Apple is so strict with their visual styles eh? I was hoping to get the OS X Tiger look, to no avail.)
I thought this was going to be a long list.
Yep, I recently bought one… and count me in as one of the growing Mac converts. Thanks to Windows Vista, I finally took the courage to switch. Windows just plain sucks.

What are you waiting for? Join na!
Here are more photos of the un-boxing. I don’t care what you think, I’ve-got-a-MacBook 😛

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. I feel bad for Microsoft. Aesthetically, Mac/OSX is better. But Microsoft Windows/PC products are very useful to me right now.
What are you gonna do? Most application developers look to be compatible with Microsoft first, before Mac operating systems. If all functionalities were equal, I would prefer Apple products because they look cooler. Read the rest of this entry
