The screen on Tracy's iBook died and he's been waiting to buy a new MacBook. This weekend he got a great deal with the Educators' discount, but I'm the one who really lucked out. Since I do more photo work and now some digital scrapbooking, he thought I'd benefit from the faster processor and the extra room on the hard drive. My MacBook is not yet a year old, so I've been surprised by how much faster this computer is than my previous one. Resizeing the photos for the last post took no time at all. Opening Parallels so I can run Adobe Photoshop Element 5.0 on Windows takes half the time. Love the Mac, and looking forward to learning how to use Time Machine so I can stop worrying about back-ups and multiple copies of all my documents on my external hard drive.
