My old Toshiba P20 has been great, but it weighs a full 5,5 kilos. It’s also 2,5 years old and I’ve worn it out. The mousepad is dead and the screen has started failing so I needed a new machine. I had already decided on an Acer Travelmate 8100. Then came Apple’s announcment of the new 17” MacBook Pro’s. I was sold at once. It weighs about the same as the Acer, but has better hardware AND I can dual boot to play all the PC games I want
I’ll start setting it up this evening and I’ll post here about how it works for Flash development using Parallells (for emulation) and BootCamp. Can’t wait for the Universal versions of all my Adobe software! Here is a pic of it on top of my Tosh. It’s half the height, 3 cm smaller and it even looks smaller than Paulo’s 15” Dell!
Just picked up a XP disc as well, so I’m all set to try this out…23 May 2006 at 6:16 pm
