One of my favorite photographers and bloggers Thomas Hawk finally made the switch back to the Mac after 15 years. He purchased a MacBook Pro around the same time that I purchased mine. Doesn’t say if he got the 17″ or 15″ model, but he did go for the glossy screen which I am totally loving.
Thomas, make sure to try out Aperture; even for a amateur like me, it’s a great tool for photo editing, plus there is a free 30 day trial.
His post about switching is a great read for anyone on the fence about making the switch. Here are some highlights:
- Was I simply trading in my trusty old wife of 15 years for the sleek slender new 19 year old model?
- this machine is damn sexy
- There is something about the feel of the polished aluminum as I hold, no caress, the thing in my hands.
- It just works
- It’s the best I’ve felt about using a computer in a long, long time
