MacBook Pro

Ibook_macbook_pro_008It’s turned out to be a bit of a technology upgrade week here in the Abbott household, what with the camera and now a new MacBook Pro which arrived on Thursday. However, I only got a chance to unpack it and transfer all my files, applications and settings today.
Here it is sitting next to its predecessor, the iBook G3-700 that I bought in October 2002 and which has served me faithfully since then. The new MacBook Pro cost less than the old iBook. Over the years I’ve kept the iBook up to date and it’s running OS 10.4, same as the MacBook Pro so transferring everything across was a doddle. It all just works, and a lot faster!

    Sally – sorry about the technology envy. At least I feel I made maximum use of the iBook. I shall have technology envy as soon as the next thing comes along…
    Richard – your PowerBook is still a potent bit of kit. Hang on a bit, there’s a rumour that 8 core Mac Pros may be out soon. See, waiting for the next thing means you never need spend any money!
    I used the Mac migration tool in OSX (both computers are running 10.4) over FireWire and dragged a few other bits across from the iBook (which shows itself as a slave hard drive), mainly my email folder and the related .plist files.
