From PC to MacBook
This summer, I will not be satting down in one place for long because of my love of frolicking in hot weather. And I have a lot of projects going on, both for my 9-5, and for others, so I need to be mobile. Despite the fact that I have a CrackBerry, meneeds a laptop. So after weeks of hard contemplation, meditation (not really), and wide eyes, I have done it. Countrymen, blogosphere, lend me your ears. I, Luvvie Ig Baby, is now the proud owner of a segzy silver MacBook.
Yes, I of the Love of PC and all things Dell. I, owner of 4 PCs in the past 7 years, is now the proud owner of a MacBook. *hears chorus of boos from PC-owners* LibraSong & KindredSmile have already booed me and said I was a Benedict Arnold, but like the blood pressure of a Black Woman, eating po’k chops ALL her life, STILL I rise (c) Madea.
My main reason for getting a MacBook is because I wanted a laptop that was ultraportable and could perform well. Being the gadget geek I am, I consulted my Gadget Bible, Cnet.com and got reviews on all these laptops. However, I was pretty tied to getting a Dell since they haven’t let me down yet, but there was no super light Dell that had comparable performance.
Yes, I know PCs make the world go round, yada yada blah blah blah.
Sidenote: After I bought my MacBook, and carried it a couple of blocks, my shoulder started hurting. Got home and my shoulder felt slightly outta socket. This lasted a couple of days, and made a creaking sound everytime I made a sudden move. Who suffers a shoulder injury from carrying a 5 lb. laptop for 20 minutes? A mess is what that is. Jeebs be some weight training for me.
The PC loyalist in me is pained to admit that:
- This laptop is sleeker than a fast-talking Pimp with a slicky ricky hair do
- It’s lighter than Gary Coleman’s shoe
- Faster than a pregnant teenager
- Segzier than a shirtless Boris Kodjoe
- Doper than “The Corner” in Baltimore
Yes, yes y’all. This laptop is what I call “that business”. Sorry to my PC users. If it helps, I still got my Dell desktop. DJ Della is still my homie. *fist to chest*. I love my MacBook.
