I am so tempted to get the Macbook Air, even though

  • I know it’ll make me at least $1.5 k poorer (I could have spent that on a DSLR?? Or the much more powerful Macbook Pro, but that sorta defeats the purpose cos it’s 2 kg heavy while the Air is only 1.06 kg light.)
  • my 3.5 year-old Fujitsu is working super fine except for the Photoshop CS3 that crashes whenever I try to add text
  • I may have difficulty adapting to a Mac user interface
  • the Air has only 2 USB ports, no memory card slot, no Ethernet port, no CD drive and it would cost me a bomb to buy the respective adapters and portable drives
  • I would be wiser and better off in the long run to just get the Macbook Pro to meet all my multimedia editing needs – BUT I WILL STILL BE BACK TO SQUARE ONE, LUGGING ALL 2 KGS OF IT IN MY BACKPACK

I am unable to make a rational decision at this point in time. SOMEBODY STOP ME!!!!!!!! Hide my credit card or something!

The Air is too delicious to resist! Those Apple people are damn evil to design something as wicked as the MBA:

The economic recession is one big bleddy lie. Suntec is bursting at the seams and people are snapping up IT fair gizmos as if they were free! Laptops are sold like durians! Digicams are flying off the shelves and one landed in my pocket. This one:

I would have liked it to be a bit fatter though; I wanna feel like I’m holding a weapon in my hand, not some Kate-Mossy incarnation. And yes, pink again…. I’m not a fan of pink but the other colours are so boring!

Our family desktop is dying too (about time, it’s centuries old) and we got a Fujitsu laptop just in case, haha. It’s pink too, only because my mum and I got it with my sister in mind. But she isn’t really happy about Pinky cos it’s heavy and too pink. But she’s got a friggin Hello Kitty mouse! She’s gonna try it for a week and if all goes well I’m gonna be reunited with my laptop and she’ll take Pinky:

Flamingo is probably a better name for it. Pinky is an understatement.

It’s 3.10AM now and I’m still here because I’ve got too much caffeine in me. Which is probably good, since I’ve got 1000 things on my never-ending todo list. School’s starting next week and it’s overlapping with EVERYTHING. I am essentially a part-time student and full-time worker/volunteer. I’m so glad the Sinema folks are fluid about this. And the KMS people are very supportive of my Sinema apprenticeship even though that means I’m less involved with KMS, uber cool!

Am off to make a video montage for SPLAT!.
