New MacBook Pro / MacBook

Category: Apple,Personal,Rants — EclipseEmpire @ 1:07 am

Apple updated their MacBook and MacBook Pro lines today.  I have the original MBP released 2 years ago.  It is still very nice, but I do want a little more power.  I currently have a 2GHz Core Duo with 2GB of RAM.  My hard drive is only 80GB.  I am constantly removing old podcasts and moving music and video to my NAS.   Unlike most people who sell their old equipment to help pay for their new equipment, I now have to send it down to a family member.  Ever since I switched to the Mac in 2003, I have praised the Mac goodness to my different family members.  Now I have a niece that has a 12″ Powerbook, my sister and brother-in-law have a 17″ iMac (Intel), my sister has a new MacMini (Intel) and even my 9 year old son has a eMac.  This has increased demand for Macs in my family.  Before this, I would sell my 6 month – 1 year old technology on EBay to pay for the new stuff.  Now there is a technology hierarchy in my family.  So in order to get one of these new MacBook Pros, I will have to do it the old fashioned way, save.  Well, its off to the coalmine!
