My new computer...

is a sexy new MacBook Pro from Apple.
It has a 15.4 inch screen, backlighted keyboard, aluminum unibody (the computer case was machined from a single block of aluminum alloy), fast Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 GB of ram. Also has dvd-r/w so I can burn dvds.

I get tired sitting at my desk after awhile, the laptop allows me to sit in bed and get a couple more hours of work done.

Right now we're in a hotel room at the Quality Inn Airport in Tucson, spending two nights while we take care of business matters.

We also have plans to do some shopping, get the car parts for the VW, and pick up some of the things we ordered online. I have to stop in Hermosillo on the way back to drop off my passport application... my passport is going to expire next month. So it's a working trip, but we still try to enjoy ourselves.

The sky is filled with clouds and we can see thunderstorms rolling across the valleys. I really love this time of year. It's still hot and humid, but the rain squalls break up the monotony of summer in the desert.

1st Mate speaks of a funny translation of Desert Storm, with dessert confused with desert, hence "tormenta de los postres."

This is how we occupy ourselves on the road.

those Mac's are super sexy, but I am not willing to learna new computer language on top of learning Spanish.

I can understand that.. has some beautifully produced videos on running Mac software. (Steve Jobs started and runs Pixar as well as Apple). Test drive one might be surprised how easy they are to operate.

We have been in the Apple Store new to Scottsdale. Very trendy and metro sexy. We were on our way to dinner, so didnt get the hands on tour. they give on site courses right there. My Mom started with a Mac when I was a kid, but I wasnt paying too much attention to that or her at the time.
