I aimed for buying a modest Macbook Air with a decent sized harddrive (1TB, I do creative stuff that requires storage space) for out of home office days. Configuring such a machine on Apple’s website gave me a delivery date of mid-June. But I start the new gig just over a week! I then looked at the machines in stock at the local Apple reseller and came to the conclusion that the only sensible option was to buy a Macbook Pro 14”, the only model with 1TB harddrive in stock. As a bonus it features an upgraded processor for the same price as the basic processor.
So now I own a portable computer that is more powerful that my 2-year old iMac and significantly bigger and heavier than my cute beloved Macbook Air. Will have to find a bigger bag to carry it around.
C’est la vie.
Daughter figured that she needed to upgrade her imaginary computer as well. She created a cattop, featuring a proper keyboard this time. I definitely prefer Daughter’s model.
