Michael and I had to buckle down and buy me a new laptop recently.
My trust Macbook, the (usually) faithful, hardworking and non-virusy companion of my college years, is officially in retirement. Michael has plans for the little machine, though, which include a career change to being Michael’s personal video and photo editing man toy. My old Mac could do worse.
The interesting thing about our purchase is that we bought a Dell instead of another Mac. I needed a larger screen and more memory, and the 15″ Macbook Pros were out of our price range. So, we had to swim against the trend and switch back to a PC after having a Mac. These days, many people are choosing to do the opposite.
We would have purchased another Mac if we could have afforded it, but for the meantime (and let’s hope that means at least ten years) I am happy with my shiny red, sleek Dell Vostro.
