I’ve posted a couple of times now on my search for some new technology in my life. Should I get both a new laptop and an eBook reader, or should I try to find something that can serve both purposes? I’ve gotten a lot of good advice on both sides, but I’m still torn. So, I still haven’t made any decisions.
And then Apple comes along and makes everything worse. The MacBook Air is very tempting. The 11.6″ version may be just what I’m looking for. It’s small enough to meet my travel needs, but it’s still powerful enough to serve as a real laptop (as opposed to the iPad). And, although it’s a bit pricier than I’d wanted, it’s not completely out of reach. So, I’m tempted.
What are the drawbacks? Well, it’s Apple. Do I really need to go further? My computing life (both work and personal) is entirely MS based. All the computers, networks, and software that I use and own operate in the universe that the rest of the world lives in. Is the MacBook Air really worth making the switch to Appledom? I’m not sure that my psyche could handle the transition.
So, I’m still torn. And, that probably means that I’ll continue to visit computer websites and drool pointlessly over trinkets, gadgets, and doo dads that I won’t actually buy. Maybe it’s actually a form of entertainment. I should see a professional.
