I got a new computing friend

It’s hard to believe but it’s true. After all these years of sort of using them and all the hackintoshes I’ve had in the past. I’ve actually done it. I bought a Mac! A 13″ MacBook Air. I was a little disapointed because I wanted to get the 128gb version with the 4gb RAM upgrade but they don’t carry those in stores, for a number of reasons I pick up the standard version. I hope the 2gb RAM is enough, even if it has to swap at least swapping to the SSD should be fast.

I’ve been using it now for a few hours, 3 last night and about 3 tonight. Trying to get through one cycle of the battery before recharging. Tweetdeck really helps with that ­čśë Still have 54 mins left. So far it’s been very speedy and I haven’t had any problems with the RAM but I having installed Logic Pro 9 yet.

So far the only application I haven’t found an equivalent to a PC version is a quality Sirius XM streaming application,┬ápreferably┬áa Dashboard Widget but I efforts have so far been fruitless.

I’ve had 1 issue so far, which after a quick search seems to be not just me. After the Mac has been sleeping for more than an hour it doesn’t seem to go into Hibernation properly and I have to press the power button and it starts fresh. I’ve tried a few things suggested in the forums and we’ll see if any of them fix the problem.

It is so light and thin. I’m writing this post on it.
