Well I really should start from the start I guess, there is a little back story!!
I purchased my first “Apple” product in 2009, an Ipod classic, then on the first of January 2010, an IPHONE.. I really dont know how I lived without it, I just love it, it is so practical, an all in one tool! (another side note: I am hanging to get my hands on the Iphone 4 when my contract runs out… The camera is soooo much better, a must have tool for a photographer, right?!?)
While I was in WA last year all the photographers I met all used Macs and spoke so highly of them…
Fast editing, easy to use, long battery life…
Here I was on my year old windows laptop having all sorts of issues, basically pulling my hair out every time I went onto the internet, let alone trying to edit a photo!! And trying to work on the battery, what a joke… It was that slow and the battery lasted for about 35 minutes!!
And then I was having the good old blue screen popping up in my face every now and then, losing my work and having to turn it off and start again.
Well all that has CHANGED since purchasing my macbook pro in June 2010.
I cant speak highly enough about them, in over a year I havent had one problem, no virus, no going slow, and definitely no dreaded blue screen!!! And they are so portable, the whole idea of having a laptop is so that you can use them on location, well they dont slow down when on battery and the battery life is between 5-7 hrs, I just LOVE IT…
I also added to my apple collection when I was lucky enough to WIN an Ipad when I was awarded with Photographer Of The Year by the Western Australian Photographic Federation.
Anyway getting back to my original story, my macbook air…….
Just recently I purchased a 13″ macbook air, this is just as amazing, the battery life of this little baby is even better!! And it is so slim and light, I wont even notice it in my camera bag while shooting at a wedding.
I am very much looking forward to using it to have a same day slide show at Melissa and Dallas wedding in Adelaide coming up in a couple of weeks.
Ummmmm No I am not getting commission from Apple, but perhaps I should look into that.. hehehe
