The other day I wrote about me getting into college again and the changes that I hope will come with all of that. I also wrote that I could not afford getting a MacBook for school and that Windows is no longer that great. Well… It seems my worries are over.
The other day, an hour or so before my boyfriend was about to come home, he wrote to me saying he’ll most likely be late. That was fine with me, since the trains usually have troubles with just about everything these days. To my surprise, he actually came home a lot sooner than I thought. I sat by my computer, playing around with lots of stuff and before he came in through the door he told me to close my eyes and keep them close. I was so excited and I hoped it was a MacBook that was the surprise. I was right. My mind is blown away yet again. Talk about having an awesome boyfriend!
The thing is, that he ordered the MacBook when I got accepted into college. It’s the 2018 MacBook Pro 13″. It does come with some strings attached. It will be mainly my computer, but he will also have an account. We also installed windows 10 on it, because why not? Also, I’ll probably not receive any gifts for a really long time and that’s fine with me. This year has been full of surprises and I’m expecting to get a better financial situation the upcoming years than I’d originally plan so that means I can probably save more and spend more if I want to. I guess the only greedy question in my Apple journey so far is if I’ll buy an iPad with an Apple pencil or if I can manage without it. I’d like to go paperless for school for many reasons, but our iPad mini 2 works fine as is, even though I’d really like to have at least touch-ID for it. I guess we’ll see what happens when school starts. I probably won’t be needing a new iPad until I have a math class, which is not until march 2019 or something.
Also, I must add that I’m a huge fan of the trackpad. It took a few hours to get used to, but now it’s like I want it on my desktop as well. My mouse for my desktop is a logitech mouse with a trackball. It’s called the Trackman Marble and I love using it. Now, however since using the trackpad, I don’t really what to feel. It has so many advantages, but so does the original Trackman. It’s overall the absolute best touchpad I’ve used! The typing experience is also really nice. I thought I’d get pain in my fingers from writing on it, but no. Everything is fine. I do miss a numerical, though but I guess you can’t have it all. Not even the 15″ has a numerical…
Well, it seems my Apple collection is just growing bigger all the time and I love it. I’m curious to see what product will be next and how well the computer will work for school.
Do you have a MacBook Pro 13″? Let me know how much you like it by leaving a comment below. Thanks!
