My company-issued MacBook Pro finally came due for an upgrade. I got a shiny new 17″ MacBook Pro at work, but I decided to take the migration as an opportunity to split my work and home computing resources into their respective domains and purchased my very own 15″ MacBook Pro for home.
It’s a super-sweet, 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 machine with 8 GB DDR3 RAM and 750 GB of 7200 RPM hard drive. I even got the upgraded, high-resolution screen (though I’m a bit miffed that Apple rumor junkies think a new MacBook Pro with Retina display will get released early next year). The impressive new machine should provide a much-needed boost in performance when working with RAW images from my Nikon D7000.
All this means is that I’ve been a little slow to post things here while I migrate [not one but two] machines, but you can expect good things in 2012, especially in the [soon to be added] photography area of this site.
