Well, almost. I have an iPhone 4S which is clearly cleverer than me and sometimes frustrates me.
I am currently on a Dell Inspiron 6400 which is about 7 years old, used to be DH and is as slow as treacle, frequently crashes, requiring restarts etc.
We are slowly changing from a PC family to an Apply one I think although the desktop and main computer is still a PC which runs our network.
I use the laptop mainly for MNing playing in the internet, occasional work related stuff ie emails etc, and would like to have my photos on whatever new lap-device I get, rather than the desktop that is often monopolised by darling offspring
So, any advice? Air or Pro? What size screen and memory/processing speed? Currently I am thinking I'd rather compromise on size and have shedloads of memory and speed - any thoughts?
I am not a gamer, so anything that would support htat is of no interest to me.
Ok then, Ancient Dell I am sitting on seems to have a 15 1/2'' screensize. I probably won't be carrying it around with me that much unless I fall totally in love with it. Hm. So, I'd better invest my money in memory and harddrive, eh? Rather than cuteness.
hi I have a 13inch Pro, and I think its great. I do need to lug it around and seriously considered the Air, but I do a lot of work on the laptop and need a computer which has a CD drive etc. I have no complaints, although by the end of a work day, i'm not sorry to put it down. The best bit is the synching of your calendars across devices so I have a better chance of staying on top of what is going on.
I had to get my last MacBook Air from Currys, at the insistence of my insurer. I've had plenty of fun with the genius's in the apple store. So long as you register your machine online, it doesn't matter where it was bought as all machines come with AppleCare for the first year, I believe.
You may want to double check with Apple first though, just in case the deal with JL is different.
Definitely buy it from the Apple Store. You can only get OnetoOne if you buy it direct & it's fab. You can sign up to one on one sessions to help you with a particular issue, there are courses you can attend on particular apps, like iMovie or iPhoto.
The new retina screen Pro's are lighter compared to the other Pro's and just as powerful. They weigh 1.6kg each so almost as portable as the Air's. No player but then would you really play CD's and DVD's much on it?
