Well. One of my favorite things ever is getting a new computer. That doesn’t happen often. In fact, this is my third laptop. THIRD? AND I’M ONLY 18? WUT?
The first one, an HP pavilion, was from about five years ago, and the screen broke after much loving and intense use. It was my first laptop ever and it was very special. I paid for it with animal-sitting money I earned at my neighbors’ house.
And then I bought laptop number 2. An Asus! It served me well, through good times and bad, and it is still in running condition. My mom took it after I decided to buy a new laptop for Senior year and college ahead.
It is a Dell laptop, steel lid, so pretty. At first I suffered and struggled with some Windows 8 quirks but they have smoothed out I think.
Here it is in the pic, at my lovely bedside workstation! (Tea always present of course!)
While I intend to keep this pricey Dell for a long, long while, and in the best condition possible, I am considering getting a Mac someday, maybe in my Sophomore year of college. I hear it is a good choice for artists, and one of my artist friends kindly outlined the differences between PCs and Macs. I’d just like all the feedback I can possibly get on this comparison. What would the perks for an artist to buy a Mac? Any visual artists out there? And by the way, it wouldn’t be purely because I’m an artist that I would get one, but . . . oh, well, I’m not sure. What do ya’ll think???
