I just placed an order for the new black Apple MacBook online. My work has an employee purchase program which allows me to save a few bucks. It is set to be delivered on June 6th (just enough time for buyer’s remorse to kick in). I just wish I could get it sooner but I had it customized with a larger hard drive. I will be upgrading the memory myself seeing that I will be saving over $100 by buying memory separately from Crucial.
These are the specs I ended up with:
- 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo
- 512MB 667 DDR2 SDRAM- 2×256 to be upgraded to 2GB
- 120GB Serial ATA drive
- SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW)
- Keyboard/Mac OS
- Airport Extreme Card&BT
I’m going back to my roots – a Mac was the first computer I used in high school. I have been a Windows user for quite a long time. I will still be using Windows machines especially when playing games online and of course work. The main purpose of this laptop is for web surfing, watching movies and for showing off
at the coffee shop pictures.
Oh… and happy birthday to me!
