Gabe Weatherhead on His New 15″ MacBook Pro

It’s the nicest computer I’ve ever owned, just like I bet the next one will be in 3-4 years.

Gabe Weatherhead upgraded his three-year-old MacBook Pro for a new one and found several pleasant surprises.

I also use Gabe’s technique of installing a short list of applications when setting up a new Mac and making the remaining apps “earn” their way in. Looking at my new MacBook about a month in, I’ve now got 103 items in my Applications folder. When it comes to Apps, I’m apparently a hoarder.
