I'm starting to do some of my regular Photoshop tasks on the new Macbook. My God is it speedy! If I consider the time I spend just waiting for files to load in Bridge, it adds up to hours and hours. And I have a fairly high end machine. If I could just plug in my dozen peripherals into it, and never have to take it anywhere, this laptop could replace my desktop.
I mentioned that if I had the wherewithal I might just replace my Windows machine. Well, my monthly Getty royalty statement came in yesterday, and the amount is about 5 times what I'm used to seeing (a shot I took on a hike at Mt. Rainier over 20 years ago just sold for deep into 4 figures). I think it might happen now.
Robin is amused, I think. She is used to a forever vacillating Libra, and is mildly alarmed that I have bonded so quickly. I'm still lost half the time, and I'm probably building a new set of inefficient habits that I can bring to this platform. And I still think that there are tasks that Windoes does better. But the balance is clear.
If that Drobo hadn't been so difficult to get working (I still can't start my computer if it's plugged in), this all might not have happened.
