Last night, as we went through our normal routine of get home, eat dinner, play, and get ready for bedtime, we ran into a small hiccup. OK I ran into a small hiccup. The Hubs was gone for a short time while I was home alone with little man trying to attack the pile of mail we had sitting on our hutch. Little man, who is going through an amazing stage of lets’ explore everything/ push every chair around/pull everything off tables I can get my hands on phase, decided to pull on the table runner on our dining room table. All I heard was a loud BOOM! Oh man the feelings that go through your head when you hear those loud booms are like a supper fast flip books of about 20 scenarios of what could have possibly broke. Sad to say there it was laying on the ground face down, my laptop. My 6 year old Macbook splat on the hardwood floor. and a little tiny “uh oh” from little man. I slowly opened my sad little macbook, only to see a nice big crack running from the edge into the middle of the screen. Is it usable? yes it does turn on and work. Is it annoying? a little bit. Is it time to upgrade to something new? Most likely yes.
I mean this laptop is 6 years old. I no longer use it to edit photography since I purchased a desktop iMac a year ago to do all my creative work on. In order to use Chrome up upgrade FF I have to purchase the new OS. I feel it might just be time to recycle and move on. Now the question is for a portable replacement of the laptop what do you buy? Honestly I don’t think I need another laptop since I have my amazing iMac monitor for all of those needs, but I like the ability to be mobile. I need some opinions.
Or the Surface
I used to be Hardcore Apple products only, but since I have my iMac for all my creative needs, I honestly don’t care what I have for the portable unit. Thoughts and opinions welcome. Please no bashing and no trolling.
