Mac Book Pro

Got myself a Mac Book Pro (13″).

MacBook Pro

I was really hoping to have Blu-Ray and USB 3.0. Though I could have easily gotten a non-Mac laptop with similar spec for at least half as much money, I still went with the Mac Book for the following reasons:

  1. I really have been wanting a Mac
  2. I have become interested in trying some iPhone / iPad development (which apparently can ONLY be accomplished with Xcode – which in turn is ONLY available on OS X)
Since getting the device I have made the following updates to it. Items in Green are done / completed, items in Yellow are next on my list and the items in Black are on my list but I haven’t got to them – yet. Items in Red are stuff that I am struggling with :o(
