My Lenovo T60P laptop crashed last week. I don't know what caused it. It wasn't the hard-disk, it wasn't the RAM. No idea what did it in. This computer had been working like a charm for over a year, and it has traveled over 5787691 miles with me. So after it crashed en route to Hilton Head, South Carolina last week, I was computer-less. It actually worked out not having a computer in a beachy-resort for a week. But once I got back home, the lack of a computer started to get to me. I felt like I was missing a limb or my first-born child.
So I turned to my MacBook Pro (I'd bought one a few months back). I'd heard people rave about Parallels, but I hadn't really tested it out. I'd heard about Boot Camp, and hadn't tried that out either. But now was the time. Because I'd been "pc-less" for a while, I had lots of "work" to catch up on (my boss reads my blog). So I upgraded to Boot Camp 1.2 Beta, and installed Vista on my MacBook, not really knowing what to expect. And let me tell you, I was happy elated ecstatic.
Thank you, Apple. I've never been able to identify with either the Mac guy or the PC guy in your commercials. I can't say that I can identify with either of them now, but I feel good.
And, guess what, my personal computer, ironically, is not a "PC". Or is it?
