At last I have the power to surf the web from my bed! The MacBook has arrived! It flew all the way from China with me watching all the way, via the TNT website, like some obsessive voyeur. First impressions are that it is small, sexy, with a great keyboard. The negative impressions are that the thing runs hot (was there any point in getting the lower MHz), is slightly heavier than expected and eats battery time.
It is also turning my world upside down as I am now forced to leave my Windows comfort zone and look at a new way of doing things. Suddenly the issue of cross-platform software is very pressing. Web applications (such as WordPress) seem more valuable than ever.
Overall though it is just what I wanted: a small powerful machine that is quick to launch and allows me to act on any idea I may have. The only negative right now is heat. Apparantly Apple have stopped calling the MacBook a laptop in favour of the term “notebook”. Good call, “lap griddle” would probably be a more accurate term.
