      Heh, soooo

      After using my shiny new MacBook Pro for a few months, I'm noticing it's plagued by the same issues my white macbook was, and then some - graphical distortion, random shut downs, fucking TERRIBLE Flash performance (as in, my MSI Wind with a 1.6 GHz Atom is outperforming it in that department), etc. Most of all, I'm having a terrible Kool-Aid hangover. All of my Apple buddies just say the same thing - "You have a warranty, bring it in, get it fixed". Which is cool and all, except when you get it "fixed" four times and it just gets worse each time. Believe me, Windows isn't my favorite OS in the world, but admittedly, I've NEVER had this many issues with my past PC's (I'm beginning to miss my Lenovo. That was a damn good laptop.)

      So I'm looking at it from this standpoint: if I get this thing "fixed" again (probably a logic board replacement, whatever), it's still got close to a year of a warranty on it, plus all the extras I've got with it, I could get close to what it's worth (even if it's less, fuck it, technically Apple paid for the damn thing. Suck it, Jobs.) I could then get a laptop with "better" specs for cheaper, and gain a little money for the savings account (the disadvantage to quitting your job is they don't pay you anymore. Fuckers).

      So after a lot of research, I'm eyeing either a Dell or an HP, with HP currently at the top both price and performance wise... what do you guys think? Realize I'll be using this thing for HD video editing (probably with Adobe Premiere), though not like, Red or anything... capturing in 1080p, outputting at 720p for internet streaming mostly.

      I'm looking into broadening my knowledge of the computer world a little more again, seeing as I'm not legally obligated to drink the kool-aid anymore.

      Who are the top dogs in the PC market? Say I wanted a laptop to do some HD video and photo editing on, what should I be looking at?

    • Done, bitches.

      So today was supposed to be my last day at the apple store, except last night when I clocked out after a total nightmare of a fucking night, and being issued a "warning" for suggesting we tell a customer to "suck a dick and die", I decided the extra day just wasn't worth it.

      GUESS WHO'S PLAYING HOOKIE ON HIS LAST DAY OF WORK?

      This guy.

      SO

      I will no longer be working for Apple. My last day will be July 20th. I quit.

      I can only describe the last year of my employment there as being similar to slamming my head against a brick wall and expecting good things to happen. I got tired of slamming my head against a brick wall.

      I am now on the journey to self employment. Not sure what or how yet. Working on that.

      oh.... well how much RAM does your Mac have? That might be why Leopard is running slow.

      Be sure to use it to look at porn, instead of those scantily-clad hot chicks zipping by on rollerblades.

      I would have bought you that daft pulp fiction shirt. But I'm a cheapskate. So I didn't.

      I think at this rate, Daft Punk themselves have a better chance of showing up on my doorstep than your Interstella DVD.

      That's utterly bizarre.

      I'm telling.

      The strikes are happening because the AMPTP only contracts the unions for three years at a time. It has nothing to do with "well, he is".

      I know, man, it really should, and I don't know if they are just using a "poor-man's DLP" or what, but it's definitely the projector and not the use of it that's causing the problem. Maybe it's a cheap knockoff or something? I bet the quality projector at the value theater was ALSO a DLP, just a completely different kind.

    • LouisWu

      11 years ago

      I wondered if that was gonna be taken wrong. (I figured a 'just kidding' would be even worse, though, so I left it off.)

      I'm just pissed that you've scheduled a trip to SD on the weekend I was planning my next LAN...
