The sister unit’s Fujitsu died a sudden death on 28th May 2010, Friday after 7 years of hard work. It’s last words were, “..eeeeeeeeeeeee…”. The doctor (my cousin, Adrian/Qi Hong) diagnosed it as fan-tilitis (spoilt fan+keyboard).
SO! I suggested getting a MacBook cause after watching 15 “Get-a-Mac” commercial in a row, I was convinced. Surprisingly, she was thinking of getting a Mac too. After asking DK and talking to JLee, she headed down to Epicentre @ ION with Erika to get a MacBook Pro (: I joined them afterwards
Firstly, I have to say how crappy our service was? The guy was supposed to help us a) stick the palm guard and b) helping the sister to install Microsoft Office (no idea why though. could have done it ourselves!). So if you are a good salesperson, you will introduce us to the MacBook and recommend a few applications that we can install. And perhaps tell us some difference between the MacBook and Windows? Like how Ctrl-A in Windows is now Command-A? Then try to sell us some other stuff like a magic mouse or something.
NOPE! The guy was trying to sian us (pick us up) instead. Trying to get our names and trying to be funny. Like making all sorts of lame jokes about the MacBook. Calling it a “green apple” and “yellow apple”. Saying only iPhone can receive 3G in the EpiCentre-.-The way he was using the MacBook? CLUMSY! Information he shared about the MacBook? Lagi FAIL! I think I know more from the talk I have with DK and JLee. While my sister went quiet, Erika and I just kept shooting him back. BTH! Even his colleague couldn’t stand it and told him to get on with the installation.
I think because of him, my excitement level for MacBook is LOWERED.
ANYWAYS! So after a really delicious dinner at NYDC –
We went home and unboxed the sweet sweet MacBook!
The first thing my sister said was, “..how come the icons don’t popped?” So off we go to look for the setting to make it pop! But we didn’t know the name of the bar at the bottom? Google wasn’t much help so in the end, I logged on to MSN and asked DK-.- It’s called Dock by the way! After the icons popped, the sister had enough and left me in-charge!
I helped her setup her Microsoft Office, learnt about the 4-finger swipes and then I got distracted by PhotoBooth!! Don’t blame me! I like to take pictures okay! My favorite photo is this –
Very sunset-ish right? HAHAHAHA! But the problem is, you have to clear as much junk away from the background as possible. I had to stuff all the cushion we had into a corner! Tried to do the same when my sister came out from her bath but FAILED! So instead, we had fun with the other effects!
More at my Facebook album! I think I will pull the mum and dad in to take some pictures tomorrow! HAHAHAHAHA!
The sister was quite impress with Garage Band. When she found a lesson on Piano, she totally ignored me-.- *coughs* workaholic *coughs* We tried to setup multiple e-mail account using the Mail thingy but failed. After that, we declared it a day. Exhausted! The MacBook drained us of energy! It was getting so warm too!
You would think that was all? But noooo!! We discovered that there’s this scratch on the trackpad (that square you use to navigate) and we can’t decide if there was a protective layer on it or not. We took a risk and tried to peel it off. BINGO! Scratch was on the piece of tape on top of the trackpad! And my sister did something funny! She held the piece of tape up and started poking it-.- She wanted to see how the scratch was created! HAHAH!
Then, she wanted to charge the MacBook but think that her table was too dirty? So I suggested peeling off the cushion in the box and use it as a padding. Since I was talking to her and pulling it out at the same time, this happened –
I didn’t notice it and was happily pulling out the other half until my sister went, “..can you be a bit more professional?” And when I saw that hole, I couldn’t help laughing which made it even harder for me to pull the whole foam out! -.- But no more holes after that though! And just when I was done laughing, she went, “..Thanks ah! You created the hole so I can use it as a handle right?!” Which made me laugh again-.-
But yes, the MacBook now rest happily on the foam.
So that’s it from our 3 hours with the MacBook Pro. Not very exciting though. It look so….boring! But ohwells! More exploring to be done tomorrow! 😀
