Oh dear. It’s been quite some time since I posted here at Windows to Mac. I’m about to take some time off, so I thought I’d better find time for a little post before I neglect the blog again for a while!
So here are a few small updates about my recent life with my Mac:
1. I Dented my MacBook Pro
I love my Mac. I love it’s metal unibody frame. Sadly, it now has a dent in it. There’s an amusing irony to how this happened: I dented it by dropping my iPhone on it. It turns out the solid nature of Apple products can be a disadvantage when they decide to attack each other.
2. I haven’t Installed Mountain Lion
I was an “early adopter” of OS X Lion and it didn’t work out well. I have still, however, been tempted to install Mountain Lion, especially as online reports seem to suggest it is a fast stable OS release.
Unfortunately I have found out that Parallels, my favourite way of running Windows on my Mac, needs to be upgraded to version 7 to work with Mountain Lion. I am still using version 6 (and completely happy with version 6). My Mountain Lion upgrade will have to wait until I get round to it.
3. I haven’t Purchased a Retina Macbook Pro
I was rabidly excited about the release of the Retina Macbook Pro, and thought I’d be jumping at the chance of buying it. As it turned out, I was a little disappointed with what Apple gave us. I want the ability to upgrade my own SSD and RAM, and, quite honestly, I don’t WANT a 15” MacBook Pro.
I went to an Apple store, ready to be persuaded to hand over my credit card, but just didn’t feel suitably inspired. I’m prepared to wait to see if, as rumored, Apple bring us a 13” model in the coming months.
