At long last, it’s finally happened. The purchase four or five years in the making has finally come to pass. I am the proud owner of a shiny new MacBook Pro. Please, hold your applause. My mind and bank account are still recovering.
The verdict, after a few hours of use, is that this thing is in every conceivable way superior to the PC. The screen is brighter, the software is better, and the power button is made of actual metal. The glow of its screen also conceals flaws in my skin and makes me a better person than you. I bought this laptop for use in my graduate work, so I assume that its prodigious computational powers will garner me a Nobel Prize in a few months’ time.
Can we talk about how fast this thing is? I never expected it to feel so fast. It took me a little while (read: ten minutes) to wrap my head around DMG packages, and then I just sat there, stunned by the sheer velocity of installation.
So is there anything I should be doing here? Downloading some critical piece of must-have software? Configuring my system just so? Guide me, internet, through this thrilling new transition.
