My MacBook configuration


I'm not getting one until I get back (and unfortunately my Apple employee friends don't get discounts on them yet so I may wait a little longer, not sure yet).

But here are the specs for $1,717:

  • 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo
  • 1GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM – 2×512
  • 80GB Serial ATA drive
  • SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW)
  • Keyboard/Mac OS – U.S. English
  • Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter
  • AppleCare Protection Plan for MacBook/iBook – Auto-enroll
  • AirPort Extreme Card & Bluetooth

This is going to be my new work/play computer. Our home computer is Mac Mini w/ a 23" display. We have a pretty phat computer set-up, w/ AT&T DSL Pro, wireless network (wireless printing)…happy, happy.

Not much more you can ask for. As far as software is concerned I use:

  • Firefox daily builds
  • Thunderbird for email/addressbook
  • Seamonkey for Composer
  • iPhoto, iTunes, iChat
  • Flickr uploader
  • Not often: Word, Excel, Keynote

And that's it. All the other apps I use are through Firefox.
