Booting Up Apple At Dell
Imagine sipping a Pepsi in Coca Cola’s lobby. Or parking a Ford in GM’s executive parking lot. That’s the situation facing The VAR Guy today. In a few hours, he’ll be booting up an Apple MacBook Pro during interviews at Dell’s headquarters. Will “Hello” become a quick “Goodbye”? Hopefully not…
Fact is, The VAR Guy runs a range of systems — including a Dell PC equipped with Ubuntu 8.04. And in the mobile world, our resident blogger is looking at all the major PC suppliers, trying to select a netbook.
But during recent business travel, The VAR Guy has been all MacBook Pro, all the time. The reason: Our resident blogger is addicted to Apple’s iMovie (for quick video editing) and GarageBand (for podcast editing).
Apple’s digital editing applications are simple … but somehow powerful and elegant all at the same time. Show The VAR Guy similar applications in the Windows or Linux world, and he’ll consider letting go of his MacBook Pro.
In the meantime, our resident blogger looks forward to an engaging day of discussions at Dell.
