I has a new toy! - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
I has a new toy!
Well, I don't actually have it, but I will have it in two weeks.

I won a MacBook Air in a drawing at work. Oddly, I'd just been thinking about buying iLife, and this comes with a copy.

I suspect it will replace my desktop machine for everything except WoW. I know I'm going to use it for photo editing. I'm really fed up with Picassa, so iPhoto will be a nice replacement. I can transfer my Photoshop license to be a Photoshop Mac license if I want, but I might look into Aperture first. Or the editing tools in iPhoto might be enough, since they handle RAW. The PhotoTrackr that I've been looking at for geotagging will have their Mac software out in "a week or two". I understand that that really means "a month", but that's okay.

This means I'm going to have to go find a good USB/DVI switchbox, I suspect.

Nothing like an unexpected new toy!

Current Mood: excited excited

Congratulations! It's funny-both of the two people who won are people who I have been talking to about the Mac.

cool! I'm starting to think about when I'll replace my G5 desktop and some sort of laptop is probably in my future, in the Snow Leopard timeframe.

That is so cool! I won a computer at work 2 years ago and it was the greatest thing.

All that video stuff I do...it was all done iLife (iMovie). A fairly old version now (iLife 04). I think recent versions can do HD for video.
