Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The MacBook Pro's start arriving

MacBook ProDavid Heinemeier Hansson in MacBook Pro: So fast, oh, so fast:

The MacBook just feels freaking fast.
The MacBook Pro simply rocks.

Rob Williams in Eclipse on MacBook Pro:

First off, this machine is very fast. It is like having a G5 laptop. Apple says 4x over the G4. I was kind of skeptical about that. Not anymore.

Mine is due to arrive Friday morning at 10:30. Unlike everyone that compares their new MacBook to their old PowerBook - I'll be comparing mine to my dual core AMD 64 with 3GB of RAM. The MacBook is likely to lose, but it should put things in a more realistic perspective. Especially since I continue to use Windows and OS X an equal amount.

Thursday, 8:30 AM: From Fedex Tracking: 7:50 AM | On FedEx vehicle for delivery | LITTLETON, CO. Sweet! Looks like I'm going to have to ride into work a bit late. ;-)

Thursday, 9:30 AM: It's here! I'm heading into work with both machines to build it - so I probably won't have any benchmarks until this afternoon. I forget the initial steps to get the best battery life - anyone got those handy. As Julie said a few minutes ago, "No Wheelies!"

you must be really excited!! but please for the love of all that is good in this world let us know what the battery life is like! ;)

Wait, you are comparing it to a desktop? Not fair. That said, my quad G5, w/8GBs of RAM does not seem faster. Its huge strength is that it can do a ton of stuff at the same time w/out performance buckling at all. Richard, I responded about the battery on my blog: 3.5h. Was hoping for more, but I'll take it.

It would be just great if you'll compare it to Windows-powered equal Intel hardware. Can hardly wait when you'll share this info here! :-)
