Rotten Rotten Apple

Apple can be so annoying sometimes. Case in point: The Macbook is barely four months old and already it is twice removed from the latest version. Granted, the new Macbook looks exactly like my Macbook, but it has been considerably beefed up since the last release.

I didn't mind the initial hardware bump (from 2.0GHz to 2.2GHz) that I missed by a few days because The Macbook came with a 15k yen discount (roughly 6k pesos). But this new upgrade just adds so much overall it's no longer funny. For starters, you get a processor speed bump from 2.2Ghz to 2.4Ghz. Then, for mid-range white books, you get an additional 40Gb of hard disk space; 90 if you have the black book. AND a freaking extra gig of RAM. For the same price!!! How unfair is that!?! Again, Apple can be so annoying sometimes.

Having said that, I still love The Macbook, even if it's a few bumps away from becoming a "classic." And I am still wanting that Time Capsule. And the 32Gb iPod touch. Annoying as Apple is, it does deliver.
