I haven’t been this excited to get a new piece of hardware since the VA made my custom prosthetic leg. I think Agile Joe Ocampo said it best, “Why wouldn’t I buy a MacBook Pro?

Since Apple decided to offer a Leopard upgrade for $10 for Mac purchases made in October, I had to go ahead and jump. I will be comparing BootCamp to (dual boot to Vista 64) and Parallels to virtualize my Vista development environment.

The coolest thing about this purchase was the automated phone call from the credit card company to let us know that someone had just spent a lot of coin using our card that we never use. Now that is cool technology.
