Dave the Mobile Warrior informed me last night that he may get rid of his MacWind. I was curious to find out why he would do such a thing. It was his idea that we get the Wind and install OS X (we own our copies).
So, I'm a bit torn now. Folks, what should I do? I truly do like the new Macbooks and the 13" LED are just what I was waiting for.
Anyway, I want to run some benchmarks on it before I do get rid of it or something. We got it on eBay with the live.com 30% discount. So, the cost came out to about $350 which isn't bad for the configuration. The same Wind was on Amazon for $480 at the time. (Sounds like Dave the Mobile Warrior might do well under the Obama plan...hmm...)
The thing is that it's a not real Mac. So, there are quirky workarounds that has to be employed to get it working the way it should. The mic doesn't work so you need a Bluetooth or USB headset. The Wi-Fi works but through a 3rd party utility. Otherwise, you'll have to get some specific wireless card that OS X recognizes.
I like it because it's light and small. I just have an issue with real estate. It's a nice toy. That's pretty much what I have say about it.
So, what do you think?
