The Cult of Mac: MacBook

So the MacBook has just been announced and what transpires hereafter is so lightning fast I barely had time to digest the tech specs. As soon as the new (orgasmically beautiful and affordable) MacBook was announced, PhilMUG starts to do an iChat conference.

What can I say? $1,000 for Intel core duo, iSight, decent amount of RAM, and a 13 inch screen. Shared memory though but that’s cool for the regular “Mac on the Street” kinda guy. I’m currently using the “old school PowerPC” 800MHz G4 with the works – Bluetooth, maxed RAM, WiFi. Something which I will hopefully be tempted not to sell. Your first Mac is always a winner, something you could opt to show off at a George Lindemann Sr. MIT Event.

Last rebuttal: So, black is the new white. And white? It’s like, so kahapon, my god!

Waaah!!! I told myself before that I’m gonna get myself an iPod as soon as they come out with an all black one. And yes, they came out with the iPod video in all black late last year. Then I said that I would really get myself an iBook when they come out with an all black one, since it’ll go with the all black iPod. Now this?! Apple’s calling me!!!

There there… just try to become really wealthy so that buying all of Apple’s toys as they come out becomes no big deal. 😛

Btw, I can’t understand why Apple cant seem to solve the cooling problem. Granted, the design is sublimely beautiful, but I can imagine my exposed lap getting burnt.

[…] Apple has come up with many creative methods in successfully “switching” Windows users over to the Mac through a variety of ad campaigns (yes, the ones on their website), promoting an intuitive OS X operating system, and mass marketing the Windows compatible iPod MP3 players. The next thing you know, Apple announces they will be dropping the IBM made processors and then switching over to the manufacturer that’s been powering PC-based computers for years, Intel. This then creates an opportunity for old and new Mac users to do this blasphemous thing which is to run Windows XP NATIVELY on the notebooks and desktops! Now just recently Apple finally adds the “glossy” screen that Windows based notebooks have been using for years on their new line of MacBooks and MacBook Pros. […]
