Today I want to blog about something I don't talk about much here: technology. I am a huge technology freak, but I just don't blog about it very much. I guess I don't have too much to say about it, in the end. But I love when I get to see what other bloggers have to say about their cameras or computers, so I thought I'd make one big post about the technology I use and what I love about it. So here it is!
My second computer, the one I'm typing this blog post on, is my 2011 13" MacBook Pro. If my EeePC is my baby (I even call it my baby computer), then my MBP is my little kiddo. I used graduation money to purchase it, and I got a great deal (yay for Best Buy!). I couldn't be happier with this thing. The keyboard is great, the screen is so clear and bright, and it just looks pretty, all silver and black. I've loved Mac as long as I've been using them, and I'm so happy that I'll have one of my own (we have one as a family computer) to take with me up to Denton in a month.
I'm planning on using my netbook for taking notes in classes, since I'll be riding my bike around campus and the netbook definitely weighs less than the MBP. Plus, the netbook runs Windows 7 and has the full Office program, including OneNote, which I like to use for taking notes. My MBP will eventually have Office for Mac on it (when I find the disk), but it won't have OneNote, since there isn't a Mac version. The MBP will mostly stay on my desk in my dorm, plugged in to my TV so I can use it as an extra screen or stream Netflix to it. I'm really excited about this arrangement. :D
Well, you know what, this post is a little longer than I anticipated (I suppose I do have a lot to say on the subject!), so I'm going to stop for now and bring you Part Two tomorrow! :D
