After all the problems with computers over the last few months I decided a couple of weeks ago to go Apple and get myself a MacBook. So when I drove down last Monday to Glasgow I went straight to the Apple Shop and had a chat and bought an Apple MacBook Pro. I can see why Apple have managed to turn customers into devoted followers. The whole experience of buying and owning an Apple is designed to make you feel special and feel that all is going to be well from now on. No little detail seems to have been overlooked from the backlit keyboard keys and the superbly easy to use trackpad to the seamless integration of the various programs. Even the packaging is superbly functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. As I've been using Windows since PCs hit the market place so getting used to this will doubtless not be something that happens overnight and I'll bet that this won't be the last post on the subject either.
The box is slim and a work of art in itself and to help you carry it the carrier bag is actually also a back pack - cute. Helpful too because I also had another box to carry.
