I assume everyone is already familiar with Apple’s Macbook Air commercial. :)
I just bought a nice companion for my Macbook Air, a lovely ‘envelope’ as seen on TV. :D
The moment I saw this sleeve, I smiled and immediately placed an order. It was designed by an Australian designer: Shuky. (Disclaimer: We are not affiliated with them in any way.)
A few photos of this lovely, creative piece and my Macbook Air.
Two more photos after the break.
Last night I stayed up really late doing some usual reading and researching, I think it was 6:00AM that I finally went to bed. 11:00AM this morning, door being knocked, I quickly jumped out of the bed and rushed to the door, yup that’s right, it was TNT Express, my Macbook Pro was arrived. :)
I had been waiting for this moment for so long. Before I got this new Macbook Pro, I design graphics on my Windows XP desktop (Q6600 + 4GB RAM) and do all development work on my 12″ Powerbook (1.33GHz G4, 768MB RAM), trust me, it was a pain. Even the Windows desktop was playing nasty, Photoshop and Illustrator quit on me constantly despite the fact that I keep my computer clean and organised (and virus-free obviously).
It feels so relieved to be working exclusively on the OS X platform, I think my productivity will increase.
Okay, in the last few days I started looking for phones. I currently use a Sony Ericsson S500i as my primary phone and a Nokia N80 (kinda broken) as backup. They’re both 2G phones, so I was going to buy a 3G phone, either Nokia E65 which is free on a $29 cap plan on Three Australia or Nokia N82 outright on Ebay. I was so sure that one of these phones will become my primary phone for the next few months…
Until I hit ‘apple.com’.
Penryn platform, multi-touch trackpad, doubled VRAM, bigger harddrive and slightly lower price, sounds wonderful. I know I will be ordering one soon before my ADC subscription expires :)
P.S. Right now I do all development work on a very dated 12″ Powerbook with 1.33GHz G4 CPU + 768M RAM despite having my Quad-core + 4G RAM PC desktop.
