So, it arrived! My new MacBook Pro is here and it's what I'm tying this update from :-) So far, I've got things like Safari bookmarks set up, figured out a little bit about how the Finder works for finding files, and reformatted an external hard-drive for Time Machine. So at least I've got a back-up before I do anything awful to my new toy!

It's incredibly shiny and pretty. I keep petting it. Nice MacBook. Good MacBook.

I feel like there's a ton I need to learn before I'm really proficient here, but at least it's here and I can learn now :-)

OMG, I bought a really pretty computer!

(I'm sure I'll be documenting this a LOT.)

I did the scary thing - new MacBook

I did it. I bought a MacBook Pro. Eeeep!

I’m torn between excitement and terror at spending all that money, even though I’ve actually had the money saved up for a while so it’s not like this is an expense that’s going to kill my savings. I’ve specifically been saving for it, outside my regular savings. It’s just more than I usually spend on a computer, but hopefully the investment will pay off.

Thank you for all the buying advice. I’ve learned so many unexpected tips, too, about things to use it with and apps to get for it. It’s made me feel much more comfortable with this choice.

It arrives on Monday. I need to think of a good name for it :-)

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good password manager?

 Anyone else going attempt NaNoWriMo this year?

For the first time in years, I am seriously planning on writing a story. I have no plot, but my main characters are loud and demanding. 

Advice needed from MacBook users!

I'm planning to jump ship and go over to a MacBook. Hooray, I can hear my Apple aficionado friends crying :-)

The problem is that there are so many options out there and I'm wary of making a mistake, because this is an expensive investment. So a bit of advice would be appreciated.

A lot of my usage will be general stuff: browsing the Internet, bit of video watching (not editing), writing and editing documents and spreadsheets, using Scrivener etc. I'm also probably going to be doing bits of development, learning and messing about with Python, doing some courses on data analytics etc. I doubt I'll be running around all day every day with it, because I have an iPad, but for various reasons I don't want a desktop and I'll need something that isn't awful for lugging onto planes and so forth.

I've narrowed it down to absolutely NOT the 12" MacBook (every article on it says its not worth the price-tag) or any 15" monster.

I'd been leaning towards the 13" MacBook Air, with the best CPU on offer and 256GB drive, but it's an older architecture and that makes me wary. I want to get at least five years out of whatever I buy, and I'm concerned that the Air might not match my needs or stay update-able for that long.

I've been looking at refurbed 13" MacBook Pros - October 2016 release or June 2017 release. For not much more than the Air I'd been looking at, it seems like I'd get more power and the architecture is newer (same disc amount, though), so they're likely to stay update-able for longer. But are refurbished models from Apple actually reliable?

Does anyone have any opinions on which way I'm better leaning towards?

And will 256GB be enough disc space? I don't tend to store videos on my machines and I can archive stuff on external HDs when necessary, so it sounds OK to me, but I haven't gone Mac before so I don't know how much space the OS etc. needs.

Any thoughts much appreciated!
