The iBook Stare

A couple of days after upgrading to a MacBook Pro, I’m still doing ‘the iBook stare’—that’s the five, ten or twenty second pause where your brain switches off completely and waits for the computer to open an application, or for Firefox to render a web page; the human equivalent of the spinning beachball of death.

It turns out that there’s really quite a big difference between a five-year-old iBook with a 700MHz PowerPC G3 and 640 MB of RAM and a brand new MacBook Pro with a 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2 GB of RAM.

Thanks Mom and Dad. Best. Early. 30th. Birthday. Present. Ever.
