I've gone Mac! Friday, November 16 2007
Following in the steps of Jason, Rob, Eric and Scott, I have gone to the "other side". Yesterday I became the proud owner of a shiny new MacBook Pro! I opted for the 15.4" 2.4GHz model with 2GB or RAM but have already swapped out the RAM for 4GB and upgraded the hard disk to a 200GB 7,200rpm model (the 5,400rpm model that came with it just wouldn't cut it for me).
So far the impressions are good. It works well and was very impressed that when I connected my cell phone via Bluetooth it asked if I wanted to connect to the Internet. A couple of settings later and I was online at 3.5G speeds. Easy!
As for Windows, I first installed Vista x64 via BootCamp to see if it would work (Apple say BootCamp only supports x86) but the lack of Bluetooth support and a couple of other missing drivers forced me to go back to Vista x86. It's annoying seeing as I have 4GB or RAM I can't get full use of but hopefully support will be added in the not too distant future.
I have some more setting up to do like installing Visual Studio and other app's in Vista as well as playing with VMWare Fusion.
