There she is. My baby. I took her apart last night and gave her a little present. A Crucial M4 128GB SSD and a Hitachi 750GB 5400RPM HD.
I know she looks a little ragged. But she got the gusto now.
And yes, I am that much of a geek. So, let’s see, now everything loads instantly. I never have to wait for the most part. It’s like she’s new again. Really, it’s remarkable how fast this 4yr old beast has become.
Anyway, I guess that since I dropped 300$ on these bad boys, I can now hold off till probably next year to purchase a new one. So I guess I saved, money?
Lately I have been noticing that my beloved Macbook Pro has been creeping along. For daily tasks it’s fine. But when I get into something design wise, Photoshop, Illustrator, have a ton windows open it just likes to creep along and push my button. Yes I have a button that it something doesn’t happen immediately I explode. Anyhow enter the new Macbook Pros released this week.
They are awesome and expensive. I wasn’t thinking they were going to be that much but hey it’s Apple and well, I love the computer so I am going to have to pony up. Although I am going to admit I am disappointed. Why? Well I was hoping for a design refresh. The insides are all good, but I was hoping for something lighter, smaller and different. Mainly because I want to stand out at the local coffee shop. For that and for something new. I’ll be honest. But all and all, they are three times faster than my current Mac. I mean really, if I can’t be happy with that I’m stupid.
So probably this summer I’ll dive in. If not I’ll wait until the next ones come out, then the next ones, and the next ones until I have a perfect Mac and have aged 50 years.
