New MacBook

Yesterday, after many months of umming and ahhing, I finally purchased a replacement for my ageing ThinkPad X220. I opted for a MacBook, the 1.2 GHz dual-core Intel Core m5 model.

First impressions, I love it. It’s silent and super-lightweight, the display is amazing and the keyboard is surprisingly nice to type on.

My only concern, before I made the purchase, was that it might be somewhat underpowered, but I needn’t have worried; so far, it has handled everything I’ve thrown at it, including a couple of Linux virtual machines, which it runs just fine.

It’s still early days, but I’m thinking my new MacBook will definitely become my new go-to machine, replacing my beloved X220.
