New laptop (part 2)

After a couple of weeks with a new Dell Studio XPS 13, it was obvious that it was not the laptop for me. Don’t get me wrong, it was a fine machine, but with Vista 64-bit and my complete inability to succesfully “upgrade” it to Vista Ultimate 32-bit (yes, I tried to wipe and re-install).

So, with little hope but a “worth a shot” attitude, back to Best Buy I went. After a quick chat with the most helpful people at the Lohr Road (thanks Stefani and Ken!), I swapped the Dell for a MacBook (last of last year’s models); never had to pull out a card.

So far, I’m still getting used to the MacBook. The keyboard layout is just different enough that I keep hitting the Caps Lock key instead of “a”, and I do miss the backlit keyboard, but so far so good.

I’ve never actually owned a Mac before, so this is going to be an interesting trip.
