I bought a Macbook
Yup. New and fresh, in my hands.
Admittedly, I have always been a PC supporter. I have always believed that it doesn’t matter what technology you use to create your art, as long as you create it and make it become what you want it to become. I have been a PC designer for years. I have never been against it, and I have always enjoyed it. Yet here I am… with a Macbook Pro. My reasoning: I’m hoping to be accepted into a Graphic Design Degree. If i get an offer, I’ll be moving to Melbourne to chase my dream.
I guess if you want to do it properly, you have to be a part of the crew; after all, design standards are design standards. I can’t be the odd one out, especially when clients these days judge you based on the equipment you use (the informed ones anyway).
I’ll just look at the bright side of spending that much money on a laptop: This thing is damn cool. Plus, my trusty PC (yes, I said trusty; they can be trusty when you know how to use them properly) will still be my “daily” so to say. Kind of like having a nice E24 635CSi that you never want to scratch (Macbook Pro) locked up out the back for the serious and limited stuff, and using the E30 (PC) to dart around town for your everyday needs. Both are epic in their own right, but still very different.
I gotta get back to crossing my fingers and hoping that I’ll get an offer for the Degree :). EVERYTHING depends on this outcome. Uh oh. Cheers for reading and have a good one.
