MacBook Pro 15-inch 2.2 GHz Laptop Computer

Hey Guys!
I am soooo excited to share with you my new purchase: MacBook Pro 15"! The first week of January, Future Shop was still having Boxing Week sales and I have been in the market for a new laptop, particularly I had my eyes set on either the 13" or the 15" MacBook Pro. I ended up going with the 15" because the 13" was a bit too small for me, and the 15" had the AMD Radeon HD graphics processor. Initially I was going to go to Apple to pick up my laptop, but Future Shop had $100 off the computer I was looking to purchase, so I decided to pick it up from there instead. I never see sales of MAC computers, so I jumped at the chance to save some money. Needless to say, I've been living on this computer for the past couple weeks. I was a PC user all my life and I must say, I will NEVER go back to PC again after using my MAC! The first day or two I was a bit rusty at navigating the desktop, but after a little bit of play-time, I am getting quite proficient at the layout. This is definitely one of the best investments I have made. I actually stopped buying my typical makeup and clothes purchases just so that I could save up for this bad boy. I'm quite proud of myself that I had a goal and stuck to it. Here are some photos of the laptop:

You can see how much batter is left on your computer without even opening it!
Just press the button and the dots light up to see how much charge you have left.

All MAC computers come with a fun little application called "Photo Booth". I'm sure you have all seen photos like this before. I've probably had too much fun using this. There are so many different effects that you can apply that distort your face. When I was using this with Charles, I was actually crying I was laughing so hard.

High five to myself LOL ^Dork
Working on blog posts ^Messy hair and PJs
Charles pushed the camera at me because I was laughing at his face so hard in the pictures.
I was literally crying here.
Charles had enough of the camera lol
