Basically since I finished grad school 5 years ago and my computer crapped out on me, we've been a one computer family. It was a challenge we overcame fairly smoothly as Michael was finishing out law school -- mostly because those were my pre-blogging days. Michael is a self-employed attorney, so our family laptop is also his work laptop, which means that it's with him basically always. I should also note that said laptop is utterly craptastic, shutting down at random and without warning. So, the use of the laptap is a constant point of contention. Enter: shiny, beautiful, new MacBook Pro.
So, yeah, I'm way more into it than a person should be, but it's all mine. And it makes me legit, right? Of course, now my dilemma is -- laptop sleeve: make or buy? Actually, after literal hours of searching for the perrrfect sleeve, I've decided to make. Perhaps something in the spirit of my recent striped tote tutorial.
Are you a Mac or a PC person? Any tips for a Mac newbie?
