So right now, I’m shopping for an apple laptop. I do know it’s going to be an Apple laptop, but I don’t know which one. I’m starting to feel the processor pinch on my PowerBook G4. The machine is stable, and it checks the email and posting of blog entries just fine. Movie editing up to five minutes is doable.
It really is time, though. I’ve had this PowerBook for a bit. I’m thinking that I’ll reassign it to travel duty. It’s small, dependable, and with the new battery (the only part that flaked out on me in three years) it’s got a decent run time. There is however, one dead pixel, that I really had to look for after I remembered I had one.
Of course, the hard part is deciding on a make and model.
The MacBook Pro is of course the right decision. Dedicated graphics card means I basically own two laptops with boot camp.
On the other hand, that BlackBook is just so damn alluring. Too bad about the integrated graphics card.
To be fair, either one is a good upgrade. I’ll have more options, and with external storage, I’ll be able to do a little more editing than I’ve been doing lately. Not that I’ve posted anything since Chinatown.
Of course, on the other hand, I could just up the ram in my PowerBook to 1GB and hope that improves performance enough for me to get past the technolust.
