After almost three years I had to say goodbye to my old Macbook, the white girl who’d been good to me every since she arrived via Fedex at the end of a 3000 miles road trip from DC to LA. She survived four temporary residences, a burglary, 72-hour work runs and my fingers pounding incessantly on her surface. I opened her so much the hinge broke. Then the CD drive died. But that CPU just kept humming all the way until the bitter end.
I’d been exclusively a Mac man for 13 years. But what I have in her place works almost as well (I hate Windows menu options), costs less and for it’s bulkiness gives me what I need. I’ll miss my white girl but my Toshiba is dark and lovely, and looks better from behind 😉
