Learning to be Ambidextrous

Vince offered to sell me his 17" MacBook Pro at a stellar deal, so only a fool would pass up such a deal. It's like a car salesman offering you a Porsche GT3 at the price of a Civic or your drug dealer offering a pound of chronic at the price of a dime bag or, or, or...... you get the point.

The model may technically be used, but this puppy is in pristine condition thanks to the immaculate care Vince places in all of his toys. Knowing his almost OCD tendencies in how he handles his belongings (i.e., reading comics via thumb on the seam), I have to admit this blew the record. My laptop came in all OEM packaging with the laptop inserted in the original Styrofoam sheet adhered with the original WARNING TAG!!!!

BUT THAT'S ONLY THE ICING ON THE CAKE...... His meticulousness extended all the way down to the plastic tab cover for the power supply prongs.... ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!! All I can say is WOW

This machine is a beast, and I'm looking forward to tapping into it's potential. These pics were edited with Aperture, so I'm off to a good start. However, picking up a new operating system is like trying to learn how to write with your less dominant hand. You'll manage, but it sure looks ugly.

Thanks V!!!

  1. Man, I totally should have wrapped the cords, but I didn't have the original white Apple wire ties. :(
