All I asked is why he was getting rid of his Macbook;)_______________It’s slow. Parallels sucks. Wireless networking not fully functional. Can’t go “all Mac” because I NEED the Windows for the tools I use (so stuck with Parallels). Not enough external ports (USB, etc.) for a geek like me that wants 13 different things connected at once. Lack of peripherals for my needs. Anything simple is easy, anything not so simple is almost impossible. I tried… Lord knows I tried… but I just… can’t… do it… It’s reinforced my opinion that the Mac is exactly what I thought it was – the most stable and best computer for the average user, but at this time the absolute WORST choice for a technician. And even if more tools started coming out for it I don’t think it will EVER be suitable for a technician. In order to make it suitable Apple would have to make so many changes that it would no longer be a Mac – adding the functionality needed for a tech would destroy the strong points it has. So I’m going back the a Windhell computer. Which is going to cost me a fortune because the backlit KB on this thing has really spoiled me (and so has the battery life). By the time I get backlit KB and battery life this good on a PC I’m already at $1,500.00. AND the battery on this thing is every bit as strong now as it was the day it was brand new – NEVER had that kind of luck with a Windhell laptop battery. So if you know anyone that wants a slightly dented Macbook Pro, let me know.
