For the first time, I'm going to be carrying around a work laptop instead of my own personal laptop; investing in a new laptop for myself seems excessive at the moment, and I'd like to wait until the MacBook Air is available with bigger hard drives, anyway. The 15-inch laptop will take a little getting used to; it's a little heavier and quite a bit bigger than what I've been using the last several years. But, having breathing room on the hard drive will be nice. I've been constantly pushing the capacity on my laptop, and it will be nice to not have to keep deleting stuff or moving it to other computers.
Replacing the drive in the MacBook Pro isn't anywhere near as easy as it is in the MacBook, where it's a snap. Today's surgery involved a size-0 Phillips-head screwdriver as well as the T6, and easily a couple dozen screws. I guess it wasn't as bad as the same surgery in the 12-inch PowerBook I had before the MacBook!
Up next, installing Leopard on the MacBook Pro, and then migrating my stuff over from my laptop. Haven't decided yet whether I'm keeping the MacBook for personal use, keeping it for random home use, using it as a server of some sort, or selling it. We'll see how well I adjust to the MacBook Pro before I make any decisions.
