Okay, so you guys know how frustrated I was with my 6-year old HP notebook right? My HP notebook is so dated that the RAM is under 1GB. The average RAM for notebooks these days is 4GB so you can only imagine how slow the system I was working with was.
If you're curious how I was able to get the deal despite my situation, you can message me through the top left tab labelled "contact me". By the time I post this it would be the last day to partake in the deal, so the curiosity is more for my regular readers than anything.
After I placed my order they sent me an order confirmation email and once my notebook was processed (took about 2 days) they sent me a shipping notification email with a tracking number. This was the only time I religiously checked the tracking of a package. It went from China to Hong Kong through several U.S. states to finally Canada. It took just over a week to get to me: I ordered it on July 22 and it came to me on the 31st- the gift card came only a couple days after I placed the order.
I don't consider myself a Windows nor Mac fanatic. I just make do with what I have. But I must admit, I really like the system. I used Apple back in the day in my gr.11/12 years for Tech class but they've obviously changed since making it even better than I remember. I love the ease of the mouse trackpad with all the different actions I can do with my fingers. I love how I can have multiple desktops, I like how quiet it is, and I also love how I can shut it down and have it reopen all the things I last left opened (similar to how google chrome saves all my tabs and windows). There's just so many things I love about the system and still a lot I have to get used to. I am officially in love with it and I'm so glad I waited to get in on this deal!
As for my HP notebook, I've reset it to factory settings and will use it for side things like gaming or if I need a second screen to do something else. It's not so much a "once you go Mac you never go back" kind of thing for me, but I must say, my other sister has the Windows 8 and I really don't like it. On the other hand, using the Mac OS X has been quite enjoyable. I've been wanting the MacBook Pro for so long and now I have it!
Some songs I've been enjoying as of late:
