Switch Hitter

This blog was not created on a Mac, but it sure would like to be.

My 17" Dell Inspiron laptop is HUGE as I have previously mentioned (see previous really boring posts on search for a bag to fit said huge laptop). So just when I find a bag to fit the laptop, an old injury starts flaring up as a result of carrying 3000 freaking pounds of books, briefs, and 'puter across The Ville every day like I should be going down the side of the Grand Canyon while wearing a sombrero with two holes for my ears.

But I digress.

I have decided I'm selling my beloved Lt. Uhura, Dell of Power, and using the funds to purchase a smaller laptop that won't cause shooting pains in my neck and shoulder after being carried for 8 hours. I'm thinking of switching back to Mac. When I was in journalism school, all we used was Mac, but that has been a long time ago, and I'm not entirely sure I'm ready for that kind of committment. So, once again I am coming to my faithful readers, all 15 of you, to poll you on your computer usage habits. Any Mac users? Any advice for those of us leaving the evil Microsuck empire?

And don't even advise me to watch those smug new ads Apple is running. Someone needs to medicate Steve Jobs over those damn things because clearly his ego is out of control. People who have a superior product don't need to dangle it in your face in quite such an obnoxious fashion.

FYI, as I said Uhura the Dell of Power is for sale...fully loaded Duo Core processor with a printer and slip sleeve, only 4 months old, for a mere $1100. If you are mainly using it at home and not carrying it around like a Beast of Burden, it is really a great computer.

I have always been a PC person but I just got an Apple MacBook 13-inch 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo to scale down and it is amazing. It is a perfect on the go machine no PC lag time and for $1079 it seems faster than my 2.16 GHZ Sony Vaio. Even though I am adept with PC's it is sure nice not having to install a new driver or plugin every 5 minutes. I also get 6 hrs battery life unless I am watching my "educational" DVD's

If someone really want to lug around a manhole cover chack out the 17 lb Acer Aspire 9800 20 inch.
