weekend, I decided that I could afford a few leisurely hours to migrate
my work life—no, actually my entire online life—from my Dell Latitude
610 running Windows XP to my new MacPro Notebook running OS X
(Leopard). I was really looking forward to it.
I had already enjoyed the “Mac out of the box experience”—unpacking my new laptop, plugging it in and marveling at Steve Jobs’ signature power supply (with “ears” to loop the cord around, as well as the sliding hook on the cord that makes it easy to create a quick and tidy loop to get excess cord out of the way, and the magnetic connector that lets the plug click satisfyingly into the MacBook). I even marveled at Steve Jobs’ packaging. Who knew that styrofoam could be so elegant! I’m convinced that Steve J personally approved the styrofoam design. My husband and I joked about making a wall hanging out of it.
