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.

  1. Mine's on its way. 120gb hard drive, plus I picked up a 2gb RAM kit.

    I'm using it with an HP Photosmart 3210 printer/scanner. The drivers for the printer are built in, unfortunately HP don't have intel-ready drivers for the scanner yet.

    Not to worry though, I've tried out VueScan (a 3rd party app) and it's brilliant! Works on PPC and Intel, and most scanners are supported.

    Hope you enjoy your new MacBook!!
