I like pretty things

macbook air

hellloooo from my pretty pretty precious macbook air.

basically, i haven't had a personal laptop for a decade or so. dell provided me with a work laptop and when i quit my job, i just had a desktop. but in december, i turned in some amex reward points, and got a dell ultrabook. i was pretty excited and thought it was super pretty with its aluminium casing, and cheap!

well, i had it for about 2 weeks, took it to an artemis party today. artemis is a game where you play with a team, and everyone has a laptop and a function: engineering, helm, weapons, science, comm and captain! and you crew a star ship through a dangerous universe! so fun. anyways, i was on engineering, busy powering torpedos and warp drives, when my computer just died!
the captain was like: okay... we just lost engineering.

it wouldn't load the os, and after googling the problem, it seemed to have happen to various users. i was so annoyed, andy drove me to best buy where i returned it, and got a macbook air.

clearly, failing while i was trying to operate a starship was the last straw for me.

so, i finally became a mac user. well, my desktop is still a PC, so we are a bi-OS family here now. but it's a huge step for me since i've always been mac resistant. it took me 10 minutes to figure out how to install a program in a mac. i'm like level 2 newbie mac user.

but how EXCITING. so pretty pretty. it only has 128 gb though (solid state!) so it's mostly just for travel and email and now i can go to a coffeeshop and be a hipster.

i now need a sticker to go on top of the apple logo on my macbook, so i can make a statement about myself while at a coffeeshop.
