The Apple Macbook

After listening to and reading lots of reviews about Apple Products on the Net, I finally decided to check out for myself, what is it that makes Apple report profits while most other companies worldwide are reporting huge losses and laying off people in the middle on this huge global recession.

So I got my first Mac book. Its the aluminum 13 inch one. Since I work in the Information Technology industry, I have always been interested in understanding how to make products and services intuitive and easy to use while hiding all the complexity in the background. And after using the Mac book for the first 2 weeks I have come to love Apple for the following:

1) Beautiful Design
2) Fast, Intuitive software and hardware
3) All the technological complexity is hidden from the User

I have also been using the Ipod for the past 5 years. One word describes it best. And that word is "Simplicity". I am definitely getting a feeling that by end of 2009, I am going to be a hardcore Apple fan. Maybe I already am one.

Any of you who are thinking of getting a new laptop, do check out the Macbook as one of the possible options. For people who are not very techno savvy, getting used to the Mac book may take 2 to 4 weeks. But I would definitely recommend investing this time in learning how the Mac works. It will be time well spent.
