Big Mac


Meet my new travel companion!  It is a great friend when you're stuck at an airport hotel - unable to sleep before a flight.  I just took this photograph.  I couldn't miss the opportunity of the wonderful picture on the wall.


My MacBook Pro is a gift from my dear wife. Yes, I am officially (and finally) converted from the industrial PC to the artistic and musical Mac.  Until last week, and apart from a couple of iPods, I managed to stay completely outside of the world of Apple. 


The forbidden fruit was not specified in the holy books, but after what I've experienced in the past few days, I am 100% convinced it was an Apple...

Almost looks like someone took a bite out of a Dell. In reality I am just envious of your new machine.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the light side! I bought one last year and have been loving every second of it. Make sure you get AppleCare protection!
