I’ve spent the past week painstakingly moving all my documents, files and folders, iTunes music, design applications and instant messenger tools across to my new love affair. All I need to do now is move my archived mail folders. Eeeek 🙁
A friend kindly offered to purchase my MacBook Pro in Singapore at a very good price. With 2GB of memory, an Intel Core Duo processor and a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce graphics card it’s like driving a Ferrari after driving a VW Caravelle for 2 years.
Up until recently I wasn’t convinced that a Mac was that much better for desktop publishing work, I’ve also thought of it as a bit of a status symbol. I was wrong. Apart from the power under the bonnet that handles the Adobe design suite much better, Mac OS X Leopard boasts some great intuitive features that are already saving me lots of time and helping me get far better organised.
What I am most chuffed with is in fact the Mac Book Pro screen, which boasts a “15.4-inch (diagonal) TFT LED backlit display with support for millions of color“. I am ashamed to think of what my eye’s have been put through on my LG screen, as it is known to be rather dark.
I am a 100% convinced my new Mac Book Pro will help me produce better designs in more vibrant colours.
P.S. I have found one dashboard widget, that is an absolute must have. I’m not going to say what it is, just point you to it. Trust me on this one though, this widget will come in handy when on a Skype voice chat to a your clients.
