My shiny new MacBook Pro 16” just arrived! 💻
I pulled the trigger on the MacBook Pro 16” plus an assortment of dongles. I hope I don’t regret it!
I feel my resistance breaking down… I am very tempted by the MacBook Pro 16”, and today my aging non-retina MacBook Air (2014) was starting to act flaky… and Jenn keeps saying I should buy the 16 for our big trip next year. I’m feeling a big purchase on Black Friday is increasingly likely. I use an iMac as my main machine, so don’t really need a powerful laptop most of the time… but it would be a nice upgrade for those times I do.
After Jenn moved to NZ in 1994, we got our own place, a tiny and dingy flat in Mairangi Bay. But that was fine; we didn’t have much stuff back then. #dejus365 #ThrowbackThursday
Today is the 35th anniversary of the introduction of the first Macintosh. So it seems only fitting that today’s photo of the day is of my Mac Plus, from 1989. Not the original model, though the same shape. But I did use the original in school. #dejus365 #ThrowbackThursday
Watched the Apple Mac & iPad event this morning. That’ll eventually be an expensive event: I want a new 12.9″ iPad (with keyboard & Pencil), Jenn wants a new 11″ iPad, she also wants a new Mac mini (to replace her aging iMac), and I want a new MacBook Air (to replace my old one).
But none of it is urgent, so I won’t be ordering anything just yet.
To followup on the #ThrowbackThursday last week, this time here’s the first Mac I owned, the Macintosh Plus, around 1989. Initially only with dual floppy drives. #dejus365
To mark the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the iMac, here’s mine. #dejus365 (Learn more in the excellent linked article on @512px by @ismh.)
