this year, i received one of the best Christmas Gifts ever -- the macbook pro with retina screen:
|it came with a very minimalistic clean gift box|
|english translation: Merry Christmas My Love!|
|and a "Merry Christmas" it is, indeed! :)|
|it was love-at-first-sight, just like with my old mac|
|couldn't really wait for Christmas to open it and start using it|
|you need an AppleID and have to be connected to the internet to set up everything on initial boot|
|hubby thought of everything -- he even bought me this laptop slip case... so sweet and so thoughtful! :)|
|it's a little bit smaller compared to my old mac|
|a bit of a downside -- i actually prefer the silver keypad as it's not so painful to the eyes in the dark when it gets back-lit|
|and here i am, using it for the first time... and totally loving it!|
i really love the new macbook pro with retina technology. and it's not only this retina screen that i love. i also love how it's using SSD, which makes it noiseless. it's also lighter and it has HDMI.
i know having a mac is a bit expensive compared to the other laptops. but my macbook pro of seven years is still usable up to now. i only had to replace the battery once. and during all the seven years that i had it, you can count with your fingers the number of times it crashed... so in the end, it's really worth all that money. although it's still usable and working perfectly well, it's starting to get behind in terms of the latest technologies... i'm going to miss the old mac just like an old friend. but, sometimes, we need to make room for new things in our lives so we don't get left behind and become obsolete.
Merry Christmas, everyone! :)
