There aren’t too many things that I’ve always wanted but never had, which isn’t a statement about how lucky I am as much as it’s a declaration that things aren’t my thing. I’d rather travel: locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Any travel is good travel.
But I’ve always wanted a Mac of my own. Oh, and an old boxy 1980s Chevy pickup.
This is about the Mac.
A few months ago, I bought a used one super cheap, and it’s been solid. I even upgraded the memory. However, I’ve mostly let my stepdaughter use it. Mostly, I wanted to to see if I could actually get used to the Mac OS. I’m an Apple guy through and through when it comes to mobile, so it would seem to make sense that I’d take to a Macbook.
The track pad? I get it.
The red-yellow-green browser buttons? Those were easy.
The Touch ID? Love it.
What I bought was a Macbook Pro with the i9 processor, 32GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. I decided to get the most powerful version I could find so that, maybe, it would last me a long time. My intention is to use this laptop for creative pursuits, especially music. My thought initially is that I’d connect my Korg Kronos to the Macbook and arrange via Logic Pro X.
All I’ve accomplished tonight is the unboxing and going through old bookmarks and deleting the obsolete ones.
My next step is to add apps. Would love your recommendations!
