Birth Announcement!  


is pleased to announce

the birth of a bouncing baby MacBook Pro,

on February 20, 2009, at 9:33,

in Santa Monica, California,

weighing in at 5 pounds, 5 ounces, 2.4GHz

Okay, I totally lag.

I have to say with my MacBook, I never fully understood the koolaid drinkers. Clearly, I needed to start with a MacBook Pro. This puppy is much better built, sooo much more responsive, usable screen (resolution-wise), and just an all-around nice package. It's a little on the heavy side, but me likie.

Her network name is "Galactica".

Meanwhile, my old black MacBook had very suddenly developed the bulging battery problem (I believe it expanded when I removed the battery). A few weeks before that, a tiny sliver piece of plastic on the MacBook case suddenly fell off!

Well, I made an appointment at the Apple Store to get my battery replacement. From what I was reading, Apple's response to the case plague depended was mixed.

I don't buy extended warranties, so I don't have AppleCare. Because of the pseudo-recall, the tech exchanged my old battery (which still was at 100% anyway) with a new one; and told me there was a replacement policy for the top (free). He sent it in the back for a "new top". I was surprised when it came back to see it had a new keyboard and trackpad too (it's all one piece)!

Yay for defects, I guess! Because of them, for $0, I have a like-new BlackBook to sell! (Well, once I'm sure I have all my data off.)

Mood: pleased

Hopefully I'll get one myself over the summer. They are expensive....

You're going to need Cylon technology to keep that thing going past Season 3.
