What a fabulous birthday present! I got it a couple of weeks ago, but have been too busy playing with it to put it on my Blog.
It's an Apple MacBook Pro, with Intel Dual Core 2.6 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM, high resolution display, and a 200 Gb 7200 RPM disk drive. It is loaded with Adobe CS3 suite and Apple Aperture, and has the marvellous Mighty Mouse.
I'm a happy camper!
(BTW, Plod was the name of my old computer, so this being an Apple is iPlod)
