PC woman: complicated interface, kinda ugly, nagging messages flying at you all the time, it's not clear which buttons you're supposed to be pressing, performs dull processes, someone you just picked because everyone else had one
Mac woman: stylish, sexy, easy-going, does fun stuff, always ready to help you out, firewire port at the back she encourages you to use
might have previously considered myself a "mac woman" due to preference in computers... but, hey, that works too.
i've a sexy, new, glossy
(yeah, that's right) macbook pro on the way, and i cannot stop salivating.
i tortured myself, for a long time, with indecision.
to glossify or not to glossify...
in the end, i chose glossy for a few simple reasons:
-1- the colors are brighter and more crisp, clear, intense, and saturated. (no more grayed tones or muted colors!!)
-2- i, oddly enough
, find that it is most effective to use my laptop in my lap or in front of me on a desk, where i am actually looking straight at it. i know... it's kind of a crazy, whacky
concept (to those of you who seem to be very concerned with the reflection produced during side-viewing), but hey... it works for me. :thumbsup:
-3- i will, primarily, be using it in my home (the batcave) and in other environments where i can control the lighting.
-4- i have found several sources offering protective, non-glare films for little cost... including some non-adhesive ones that can be removed and slapped back on with no harm to the film or screen. so if glare ever presents a problem (say, in the event that i do
feel the desire to take this sexy piece of machinery out, on a romantic excursion, to bask in the sun), i have the option of eliminating glare.
thus, i will be able to benefit from the advantages that both glossy and matte provide.
john siracusa and the like can masturbate their egos, by calling me an idiot, untill they chafe. :P
i am really not concerned with their opinion on the matter.
