Francesca and I splurged – new MacBooks! This is our last capital expenditure prior to the baby’s arrival – Franny’s laptop (Sony P.O.S.) was dying its final death, and my Dell 700m, which was a trooper, was killing my hands (tiny keyboard) and eyes (tiny screen). The MacBooks fit the bill – beautiful machines. Franny’s has 2GB RAM, mine only has 1GB . Small hard drives – we’ll need to upgrade in the near term (only 60GB… almost full already). We’re running OS X, no problems switching our lives (though we have the windows desktop left for special cases).
James the Rocketmonkey got us Techshell covers – they are very cool. Helps us figure out which laptop is which. Actually, he ordered us 1 Techshell, and they sent the wrong one, so we got to keep a free pink one. It worked out perfectly, and they were very good about it. When we were looking into these, we couldn’t find any good photographs of what they actually looked like – for some reason the website itself doesn’t have close-ups. So after setting up our new MacBooks and getting the covers on, we took some photos to share with the world :
Update: switching over to Flickr, until then photos unavailable
