The New Hotness
After 5+ years, my aging PowerBook G4 was finally replaced this week by a new aluminum MacBook.
I had been eyeing it for a while and was planning all along to actually buy a refurb unit from apple.com. Well, it turns out I waited long enough for them to drop the price buy another Franklin, which sweetened the deal even more. The backlit keyboard on this unit is much brighter and consistent than that on my PowerBook, it's obviously much snappier with the upgraded hardware, and I love the new look of the black keyboard and screen. I'm really digging this so far.
