End of an era

I’ve given up my PC to my brother as his computer (my old 1999 Dell) was finally giving up the ghost. I no longer have the ability to execute Windows x86 binaries or Linux x86… for now. This leaves me only with my Mac.

I miss the pedestal of my PC’s case (clear horizontal surfaces being a bit rare due to the chronological ordering system I use (ie I dump things on spare space, and neglect to clean up), but I will not miss is the fan noise.

In the new year, after the wedding, I’ll get a nice MacBook Pro once they’ve sorted out the whine (apparently sorted with later MacBook Pros which have a different display inverter), fan noise and overheating issues (probably fixed with the firmware update), distorted right hand speaker, and expanding batteries and reports of poor battery life.
