I’ve been an Apple fan for literally decades now (does that mean I’m getting old?), starting off with a Laser 128 and then an IIgs which saw me through to college when I started working on NeXTSTEP based computers. Now that Apple has started putting Intel processors in the Macs, I’ve been drooling over them. Well, they just released the 17″ MacBook Pro and I placed my order. It’s scheduled to ship on the 16th and should be here by the 23rd.
