Back to Mac

11th June 2007

Readers will know that at heart I am a Macintosh enthusiast, but I had been drawn over to the dark side because of work compatibility issues, among other things. As it turns out, my Dell Inspiron 8500 has died (and it has been a slow painful death) and consequently I just placed an order for a brand-spanking new 15″ 2.2 GHz MacBook Pro. I am coming home, Steve!

Technically, I never left Apple since my home office sports both a Windows tower as well as a dual G4 tower. But the computer that I worked on day in and day out has been my Inspiron. What precipitated my return to my Mac roots? Three things: Intel chips, Boot Camp, and Parallels. The world in which I live requires that I have the ability to run some Windows programs. Now I can have the best of both worlds – the class of a MacBook plus the added windows functionality. Sweet.

I can’t wait until it arrives!

    Hey Tyler,

    Yup… Mac is cool. I’d consider going that route if Nota Bene worked with it. (Actually, it probably does run just fine under an XP emulator). BTW have you see the interview between Gates and Jobs (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=256972720? ) Could this be Luke 23:12 coming to pass right before our eyes?

    I think you’ve had class all along, Tyler. Congrats on the new machine!

    Oh, welcome back to the fold, Tyler! There is indeed rejoicing!
