Ok, so it is official I have jumped on the ‘gotta have a mac bandwagon’. The week prior to father’s day my lovely wife decided that I could get a new MacBook Pro (well, Dimecasts was going to pay 75% of the cost and she would pay the other 25%). I decided that I was not going to make this new machine my primary box, so I went small and picked up the 13.3 model.
So, why did I get one? Because I could silly :). No, mostly to learn and play. I want to learn how to code in a different environment and with different languages. On my list is Ruby (of course), Objective-C and maybe some playing with Java. I do plan on building a iPhone app for Dimecasts (just need to find the time now).
With about 2 weeks of using/playing under my belt and I have to admit the transition has been pretty easy. About the only real annoyance is the fact that they keyboard is a bit different than a PC, but over time.
Anyway, thought I would share with the world that I got a new toy. BTW, Windows 7 runs SUPER fast under VM on this box.
Till next time,
