I have turned to the Dark Side. I acquired a MacBook Pro. In fact, I’m using it right now. Can’t you feel the elevated smugness?
Overall my impressions are very positive. It’s new and shiny and mysterious. Everything is an adventure of discovery… such as “Where the hell did my video download to?” And “What is OSX Maverick?” And “I keep hitting the wrong key!” This is going to take some getting used to… but I’m digging things about it. A lot.
Such as the fact that my Drift HD camera I was so excited about getting earlier this year, finally allows me to edit with audio. Before, no matter what I tried, I could never get the audio track. Seriously, the audio track disappeared. I tried 5 or 6 different Converters to change formats and such, with no luck. Huh, iMovie opens it, edits it, and guess what? I can hear it. Imagine that. So this is going to allow me to deal with HD movies all the better. I’m excited.
Other things about the Mac, well, I’ll learn to get used to them. Such as a sudden desire to sip Chai Tea and sneer at Muggles.
This is the 13 inch one, because I prefer a laptop to be more compact… it has the latest OSX version on it. An I7 Processor, and has a ton of Ram and Gigs and can basically is the envy of all the other MacBook Pro owners who does not have the latest and greatest. Carrying it out of the store, there was bowing going on. “Yes, you filthy masses… I have the Shiniest Apple.”
Egads, the Mac Effect is already turning me… I suddenly must go to a Starbucks, occupy a table, and roll my eyes at everyone coming in.
