Had a rather more expensive dinner than usual earlier this week.
From deepest darkest Cumbria, there are rather limited dinner time shopping opportunities.
Not so in sunny Genève where I can get to the Apple shop and back before anyone notices. (except my credit card company of course).
[I am hoping Mdme Smurf will let me have a shot of it at some point.]
Of course I’ll have to go back to the shop to get a dvi – VGA converter for presenting, and probably for all the other bits to make it a complete lapper. (Its a 13″ Macbook pro – seems pretty good so far, has the thumbs up from the mrs, I’ll know more once I get a proper turn.
The plan is to load it with Unbutu, and maybe Windas, maybe even Win7.
In other Apple news, I found this proper iPad test. I was a massive fan of netbooks when they first came out, and I still think they have their place, but the iPad form factor and media consumption function doesn’t do it for me. Never mind the legendary Apple ‘control’, and the Flash battle in play currently. One of the guys in the Office has an iPad, I don’t think I’ll get one, I think I’ll be sticking to my Macbook. (I was eying up one of the neat Sony slim netbooks, until I realised they are just the same Atom proc as the 200 quid ones – I thought the Sony might have a bit more umph as well as a bit less lard – not so).
What about you? Any plans for an iPad? if so what for?
