Late June 2009 I bought a 13″ MacBook Pro (2.26 GHz, 4 GB RAM). I suppose that after just three months, the blinding “first joys” over getting a laptop have worn off. By now, I deem my thoughts about this device to be realistic and of an appropriate level. The past few weeks I attained mastery over the Mac OS through personal discovery, accompanied by a very insightful book; I bought additional software and hacked the Dock to suit my preferences.
It’s the best Mac I ever had in terms of quality and functionality. It’s perfect and very cheap for a “PRO”.
But from an esthetic point of view… mmm… it’s too serious for a Mac, It looks like a VAIO and that’s really sad… Apple computers used to be unique and fun.
I really miss the iMac G4 and clamshell iBooks era…
