This weekend we drove up to Raleigh for the simple pleasure of giving Apple, Inc. a handful of money. I’ve wanted one for over a year, but the timing or the budget just didn’t line up until now. We purchased an iMac last year as a “Shared Family” computer. Wrong. After 3 days, my wife decided it was hers and the rest of us were never to touch it. Ever.
I ended up getting the 2.53Ghz, with a 320GB HDD and 4GB of RAM. I also purchased a wired keyboard with the number pad and a magic mouse. The mouse is pretty good, like magic. So far it’s been very easy to set up and use.
Now that I have the Mac I hope to take a little time to get to know the platform, try out some Obj-C, PyCocoa, and maybe try my hand at an iPhone app. I’m very curious to see where this differs from my Linux platform.
If you want the play by play, here’s the Whrrl story to document my experience.
