Why I bought a Mac Book Pro

Being a Windows MVP, i have been using wintel machines exclusively. That is, until my friend Martin suggested that I use xcode to develop apps for iPhones. Since Xcode only runs on Apple IOS and I also wanted to try out the cool video and photo image editing utilities like Lightroom 3, i finally decided to buy one.

The Mac Book Pro sports core i5 cpu and is sufficiently fast. I got the accessories that could possibly go with it. A hardshell cover to protect the casing. A thin layer of silicone that goes over the top of the keyboard to protect it from spills, and a wrist pad to protect the mousepad area.

The first thing I had to teach myself was how to do the ‘right click’. It seems you use two fingers to click on this. Wow. the joy of learning new stuff.
