Oooh, shiny: One month later, I'm sold on Mac

After years and years of working on Windows-based computers, I switched to an Apple about a month ago -- my first laptop after giving up my second-rate Gannett equipment when I took a buyout in January. So far, I sure do love my MacBook Pro. It's just so gosh-darn fast and easy to use!


  1. So Jim, your whoring yourself now for Apple> Let me guess, your going to be the new PR. for Steve.

  2. Them things do indeed "just work," don't they? (We have three in our house... said goodbye to Windows 5 years ago.)

  3. Quit shilling for Mac.
    They work great until things go to hell, then EVERYTHING goes to hell. Sunday, my hard drive crashed; then the firewire port crapped out eight hours later when I ran theb back-up drive. Then, desperately trying to burn what was left to a DVD, the optics fried and the entire logic board went to shit.
    Basically, my entire MacBook Pro burned out in one long, 24 hour course of events.
    I could have bought three cheap Gateways for the goddamned thing cost me - and the last Gateway may have been slower than the Apple but at least it lasted me six years.


Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
