On February 24 Apple finally revised its MacBook Pro line. I placed an order and waited for Taiwanese Authorities to clear its electromagnetism certification. One month later it flew from Shanghai to Taipei, got stuck at customs, and a series of barrage meant to make life of forwarding companies easier, I was finally handed my new baby on last Tuesday evening.
Made and assembled in China.
Apple's minimalist design
Designed by Apple in California, made in China
The standard MacBook packaging
Apple's unibody aluminium case, made from "environmental-friendly materials" - a beautiful euphemism for recycled Coca Cola cans
My only complain about the sleek and minimalist design is that it has only 2 USB ports
The black keys
And bouncing to life...
Given that I've been using Dad and my sister's MacBook previously, getting used to my baby only takes several minutes. I won't start a debate here on Windows vs. Apple, but sometimes we can just save ourselves all the trouble - antivirus programs, scanning every incoming USB, mouse, speakers, webcam, legal softwares. I hear you say some top-end laptops sell at prices lower than Apple's, but nothing beats its all-rounded performance and chic design at the end! Oops, there goes the no debate policy.
