My new MacBook and iPod Touch, that is. They were supposed to arrive Friday, which was less than 48 hours after I ordered them. Apple has incredibly fast delivery service. I chose the free 5 day shipping. When I got home from my French class, there was a note from FedEx on the door telling me that they had tried to deliver them, but no one was there to sign for them. If it weren’t for that French class, I could have had them on Friday!
I spent half of Saturday waiting around for the FedEx guy. That shows how dorky I am. I was so excited when he showed up. I opened it right away. Then I had to figure out how to transfer my files, which in theory was supposed to be easy due to Apple’s migration assistant.
I had a few failed attempts, including one that I left running during work and then the connection broke while I was there and I had to start over after I got home. It actually took much less time after I got home because I used a shorter Ethernet cable and turned off my AirPort, which helped. It took about an hour.
Pics are obviously necessary of the new MacBook, but I lost one of my rechargeable batteries at LeakyCon and I have yet to buy any new ones. Nor do we have any double AA batteries in our house. So, pictures will come as soon as I can locate some batteries.
Due to the migration assistant, I haven’t noticed much difference between my new one and my old one, except for the lack of a blinking screen. My programs are nearly the same and it’s like being on my old computer, which I like. The major difference is that I now have a WebCam, which is great because I can talk to my college and LeakyCon friends while being able to see them and they can see me. WebCams are so awesome when most of your friends live far away.
I am still debating about which iPod to sell. I haven’t opened the Touch yet. I wanted to get the rebate all squared away first, which I just finished doing. However, there are pros and cons to each iPod. I know MJae is going to say ‘Keep them both’, but I need money. I’ll probably post a pro and con list on here at some point.
