A nice place by the beach??

As much as I love Macs, I’d rather have the view. 🙂
But I thought you were a die hard tablet guy.

Looks very precarious there – one gust…

The mate of mine (the laptop that is). It’s a great machine but I think I agree with Tim – I’d rather have the view.

I’m not fooled. I’ve seen those Apple stickers on Windows laptops before – what’s the red and blue thing below? Someone ready to catch it if Ewan’s gust of wind comes through?

Nice, although I don’t tink I’d ever set a laptop on any railing, especially that one.
Welcome to the wonderful world of dual-booting. 🙂

Christmas came early?
So how do you choose which machine to use?
Is it going to be a perplexing dilemma every day or are you giving up PCs?

Looks like Will got himself a new heater. Mine keeps my lap nice and warm…

Warning: Read Your MacBook Pro User’s Guide
If you scroll to page 106, under “Using Your MacBook Pro”, Apple recommends, and I quote “Do not leave the bottom of your MacBook Pro in contact with your lap or any surface of your body for extended periods. Prolonged contact with your body could cause discomfort and potentially a burn”

Is this the tide changing?
Actually, as a non-denominational user myself, I’m sure you’ll still be switching between machines often… but I expect you’ll spend more and more time on the MacBook – especially with dual boot, or Parallels. That’s certainly been my experience.

You’ll like it. Apple I’m told has doubled its market share from 6% to 12% selling that puppy.

Now I’m jealous. 🙂

My lap stays never gets hot when using my MacBook Pro because I also got one of these. Adds to the coolness factor in more than one way.

I am jealous Will
Best wishes and thinking of you

In this video from Black Hat, two security researchers show that they can break into a laptop, an Apple Computer MacBook in this case, by exploiting a vulnerability in Wi-Fi drivers. Video courtesy of David Maynor and Jon “Johnny Cache” Ellch

Looks like all the views we have here in New Zealand – there’s only one thing in the picture that makes me envious!
