Let me introduce you to my new best friend, a 2022 Apple Mac Book Pro!
This computer is a sweet thing and very maxed out with the M2 chip, 2 TB of storage and 24 GB of memory. I was taught a long time ago it is better to get as much storage and memory as possible, because I like to keep my equipment for a long time. My boyfriend is fond of making this analogy when it comes to storage and memory: “You can never be too thin or have too much hair”.
My old laptop, also a MacBook Pro, was hard to let go. It served me well for many years as my travel and studio computer. It was still in use until it finally just pooped out after hundreds of thousands hours of use and probably just as many images. I have no complaints. Purchased in 2011, it was a very good friend and workhorse.
Mostly, I am very happy with my new Mac Book Pro laptop. It is sleek, lightning quick, has a long lasting battery and is much lighter than my 2011 version. The new backlit toolbar at the top is cutting edge along with the larger touchpad. The display is very vibrant and it seems like I experience less eye fatigue.
One thing that I am not too happy about are the number of ports on the device. Hey Apple, what’s with only 2 USB 3.1 ports? This makes it difficult if I want to connect a display, card reader, Wacom and external drives. All of the devices I use on a daily basis. So back to the Apple store I go to buy $70 worth of dongles to make everything work. I’m sure Apple is pleased.
Final analysis is the MacBook Pro is a sleek, beautiful piece of equipment that I hope will serve me for another 10 years without any problems. Prepare yourself for dongle purchases. Now that I’ve made the transition, I am looking forward to having it as my new best friend!
