Got New 13" MacBook Pro

Boy, do I love it!

My old one was: 15″ MacBook Pro (2006 version)/2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor/1GB RAM/160GB SATA Hard Drive/Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger).

The new one is: 13″ MacBook Pro (Unibody; mid-2009 version)/2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (different generation of processor)/4GB RAM/500GB SATA Hard Drive/Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard)

The keyboard is the same size as on the 15″ and it’s a pound lighter, and is it snappy! Apple continually improves things. The keyboard is backlit, v. big improvement; screen is brighter; it’s faster; don’t have to push button to open it…
