Despite one incident with some soldiers wanting a bribe (hell of an end to a good night), things are going just fine in Abidjan. However, my laptop died the other night. Completely donezo. I’ll be back in the states on Thursday, at which point I’ll make a final decision on a replacement.
I’m leaning heavily towards one of the new Mac Book Pros. I told myself that once I finally needed a new laptop, I was going to switch to the Apple cult, but I wasn’t expecting it to be this soon. I know Cupertino just refreshed their lineup, so I suppose now is as good a time as any. If I do, I’ll be going with the 2.53ghz model (mainly for the bump in the gfx card) with a plan on using Leopard’s built in Boot Camp to load on XP as well (mainly for gaming. Are Steam apps ported to Mac yet?)
Any nerds out there object to or encourage such a purchase? Is there a sweet ass deal on the horizon I should know of? A new, new refresh of the hardware? Some unholy deal on Black Friday? If so, please let me know. Until then, I hate to say the deadline of a post outage is extended another week or more.
Unless of course I completely jump the gun and order a laptop from Abidjan so it’ll be home when I return This is very likely as I am trigger happy with a credit card. Oh, should the need arise, best to email me at my gmail account [ petershall ] than @horrorsnotdead.com – Having trouble checking HND webmail from the customer’s site.
