I always wonder why am I using a windows device. It seems like I should be using a Mac instead. I love Mac and I always try to watch all the keynotes to keep up with the development at Apple.
So why am I on a PC? Well, for a start, my first computer is a PC. I didn’t heard of Mac until several years later at my friend’s house. He is a Mac user, and I was amazed by the graphical user interface operating system. It is so much better than the windows 3.1 that I was using. That was in the early 90s. I became a Mac fan.
But whenever I buy a new computer, I always go for a PC instead of a Mac. I have no choice because my school is using PC and if I use Mac, I won’t be able to use most of the software.
I’m a Mac fan stuck in a Window world.
I stayed up last night reading the keynote on macrumor. It started at 1am Singapore time and ended at 2.30am. I slept at 3am. I didn’t bother to try watching the webcast since it will most likely be overloaded. Even reading the text makes me excited. Leopard will be shipping this coming October. The new features look great. I love bootcamp and spaces. Oh… and dashboard too. I’ve always loved dashboard. And now they are coming with something call web clip that lets you add portion of webpage to the dashboard easily. COOL!
One more thing…. Safari 3 beta is now available on Windows. I’ve downloaded it and tried for awhile. Looks great, but it’s abit buggy. Hanged several times. There even reports of security risk. Not a very good start.
Was kinda disappointed that Steve didn’t announce a new iMac. There was a rumor about a brushed aluminum iMac. Or will it be announced later?
You can read more about the keynote here.
I am so tempted to get a iMac now. My desktop has been down for quite some time. I’ll attempt to do CPR on it. But still, I want a new desktop. This desktop is too old already. Its time to upgrade. And I can buy a Mac this time because I have a windows laptop. And there is also bootcamp. So I don’t need to worry about times when I die die need a windows.
But according to macrumors buying guide, this is not the best time to buy a iMac. Apple might release a new model soon.
Actually, it’s not a good time to buy any Mac device now. Leopard is coming in October. Perhaps I should wait till October before buying a iMac.
