Hello, MacBeth!

Posted in: Scratchpad, Tech | 8 Comments

Almost a month. This is probably the longest period I’ve kept away from my blog. There really is no excuse for the hiatus — especially considering that MacBeth has entered my life.

For those not already threatening to fling themselves out of the nearest window at any further explanation for the rationale behind “MacBeth”, it is the name of my new MacBook. As to why I call it (her) MacBeth… ask anyone falling out of a window!

Anyhow, this is the new range of MacBooks, with a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo Intel processor, 2 GB DDR3 RAM, 160 GB hard disk, and integrated 256 MB NVidia GeForce 9400M graphics. Unfortunately, sooner or later I will have to install Windows on it alongside Mac OS due to work constraints and also because most of my games are Windows ones (yes, I want to play Sims!).

I also got a 2000-buck gift voucher with the machine, so MacBeth has a nice little zip case. The machine gives me good battery back-up, which is great for this power-starved city.
