A few months ago I carelessly sat my PowerBook G4 on a pile of stuff from where it fell to the floor and ceased to operate. Since then I’ve been ghetto computing, hopping from Mrsdave’s old iBook, to a five year old PC laptop and my little sister’s old Mac Mini. To say it has been a frustrating experience would be an understatement. This week MrsDave took pity on me and allowed me to plunder our savings so that I could get myself a new Mac.
I was surprised at the size of the box that the courier dropped off, previous Apple laptops having had a lot more packaging. I was surprised even more when I opened the box and saw that the actual laptop box was smaller again.
The thought that goes into packaging Apple products is amazing, it’s something that other manufacturers should take more time with.
I love the keyboard on this laptop, it reminds me of the Apple IIc that I spent hours using at school.
A sense of nerd completeness.
Update: These next photos are more ‘porn’ for Scott.
Accessories have arrived today. A Foofbag MacBook case and two cable turtles.
And check out those ports. Mmmm, FireWire 400, there are so many peripherals that will plug in there.
