MacBook Love

So I made a dive into the Mac world again. I was in the market for a new laptop and I looked at all the major brands, Dell, HP, etc. They all had one thing that was just wrong. They all look like crap! and feel the same way. The macbook is solid and sturdy and built very well. I got the 13.3″ macbook.

The other problem was the OS. As much as I like Windows Vista, it’s just not good enough for what I like, which is photography, music and video. Vista is a memory hog and it’s slow. The only good thing about Vista is that pretty much everything is now compatible with it. I also love MS Office 2007. It works well on Vista and for my day to day work, I would use a PC. For my own entertainment, I definitely prefer a mac and OS X.It really it really is a pleasure to use. The iLife application suite is a joy to use. Honestly, this is the main reason I bought a macbook. There is nothing on the windows platform that comes close.

Granted, there are laptops out there with a better feature set for less money, but as far as usability and stability. You really can’t beat a mac. God! I sound like a commercial.

The thing that amazes me is that when I went to the mac store to purchase my laptop, The store was jam packed when it opened. I mean there was a line outside of about 20 people waiting to get in. When I go in there and played witht eh different versions of macbooks, I was really impressed by the speed of the OS, the quality of the product and the ease of use.

This is just my opinion, but I would only recommend a mac if you are in the market for a laptop. I mean if you use Windows you can dual boot a mac with Windows XP or Vista and they work great on a mac.

One more thing…..The multi-touch trackpad is amazing!
