My New MacBook



     This is my new computer: a MacBook Pro. If you read my post from earlier this week, you might remember that I planned to by a basic MacBook, feeling that a Pro was too expensive and unnecessary. And I honestly didn't plan to buy a Pro, until I got to Micro Center and realized that they were selling the Pro for the same price that the Apple store was selling the basic. A free $200 upgrade is always awesome.

     So I'm now running on a MacBook Pro, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz processor, 4 GB Memory, 250 GB Hard Drive. I also purchased an 640 GB External Hard Drive, which teams up with the Time Machine program to constantly back up all of the files on my computer (so pretty much every day is Data Backup Day). I was also able to purchase a warranty that covered accidental damage (not available from apple).

Welcome to the club. I love mine and don't want to use anything else. We also back up our Macs using Time Machine.

Wow, you really hit the jackpot there! It's rare to find a MacBook Pro that's being sold at a MacBook Basic price. The great thing about these laptops is they have very unique features. Also, there are very few viruses that can accept their operating systems. You might get confused with the controls, though.
