ARC Addition: 13″ MacBook 2.0 GHz


Yes, I know, it’s a year-old model and hardly “retro.” Well, one day it will be, so I’m just preparing for the future. I’m very forward-thinking, you know.

Anyhoo, this is #28 in the Apple Retro Collection, for those keeping count. It’s the aluminum body model and not the plastic one that came in black or white. The video below goes into further details on the specs — LOTS of details, just so you’re prepared. The processor is pretty darn sweet, especially compared to my ancient iBook G4, which this is replacing as my main laptop. And like its predecessor, this new laptop is now THE machine Jason and I use to record Terror Transmission. The G4 was good for awhile, but it got a tad pokey at the tail end with live recording. With the MacBook, it is blazing along without a hiccup, and that’s just what we audio producers need to hear. And, no crazy whirring fan trying to calm down an old processor about to max out. That’s rather nice, too.

Also, there are two new additions to my Apple Extras collection: Apple TV and AirPort Extreme. Might review the former if and when I have some time. It really is an incredible digital media hub.
