Why I Love My Laptop

  • It’s whisper-quiet.
  • It doesn’t heat up a room on its lonesome.
  • And if it’s hot outside and I want to sit under the fan in the kitchen and use my computer at the same time, I can unplug it and move it over there.

Hey, it’s a national holiday today.  Did you expect me to say something profound and moving?  Enjoy your grills, America.

    What kind of laptop do you have?

    Chris – It’s a MacBook.

    Question for the Mac Users-what would you recommend as a “starter Mac” for a PC user who wants to convert?

    I was really looking at the Mac Minis, but I’m concerned they won’t be around for very much longer…

    Ezekiel, I recommend a MacBook if you want a laptop or a simple iMac if you want a desktop. Both are affordable and offer a lot of value.

    I have to echo Arune here. The iMacs are amazing machines for the money these days – big screens, lots of power under the hood. And I’ve been very impressed with all aspects of my MacBook, too. For such a little machine, it works wonders and has converted me to the power of laptops.

    I might just record the podcast on the laptop this week — the Power Mac I usually use has fans that sound like jet engines in the background whenever I sit down to record. The laptop is whisper quiet.

    I appreciate the advice, fellas. I really like the G5 with the 24-inch display, I’ve seen it in action and it’s unbelievable.
