Why I have succumbed​ and decided to upgrade my laptop. And why I finally sold my Ipad.

It all started in the summer of 2009. I was working technical support in Greece for a bit IT firm and they had us use Macs. I had entertained the idea to buy one back when I live in London, even went to one of those free session to learn how to use it but was scared of the unknown.

It has been almost 8 years and I have not looked back, I have used Pc’s at a couple of my jobs but I have remained faithful to Apple’s laptops and desktops.

I remember buying the 2009 Macbook pro when I was in Athens and then in 2012 upgrading to a mac book pro retina when they were first introduced.

Then when I moved back to London and finally settled down I decided to upgrade to an iMac. That was one of the best decision I have ever made. I bought it second hand and used points I had on eBay and got a 50£ discount. I kept it for years until I finally moved to Ireland and was unable to bring it with me.

Before I moved to Ireland I bought a MacBook air that had very basic specs(only 4gb of ram) and then a tv that I paid about 200€ on sale. I would mostly use my Ipad to browse the internet and would connect the MacBook air to my tv to watch my tv shows.

Unfortunately, the more time passed, the slower the mac would get. It hit me when I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago and tried to export photos from Lightroom. I had about 400 pictures, which I admit is quite a lot. I had the time to go shower, wash my hair, dry it, get dressed and the import was not even halfway through and the mac was burning hot.

Enough was enough. I could not continue like this anymore!
