Old-school coder living in a 2.0 development world.
Things I’m not sure I should buy (but deep down I want to)
Mac: yes, a MacBook (or PowerBook or whatever is the name of the day). I mean, I really not attached to the Mac OS X, although I want to check why so many people like it so much (and, if I really don’t like it, I can still run Ubuntu). What impresses me is the hardware, actually: no other laptop have so much battery juice as any mac laptop (and it looks like Apple is working on a new version which should have an even longer battery life). But I have one Dell and it does everything I need; unfortunately, at the same time, it is stupidly heavy and not easy to carry around.
