I’ve used a Mac since the mid eighties when the MacSE was released with a whopping 128k built-in and would only start-up from a floppy disc – yet it cost more than a MacBookPro does today which is even more shocking when you consider it’s old money. Unbelievably limited, and yet it worked fine for midi recording. Most people were wondering why I wasn’t going with the industry standard at the time (Atari) but I somehow felt there was something more special in the Mac build. I’ve wanted to find an excuse for an iPad purchase but have yet to do so. It’s a lovely machine though. I was tempted when I started playing 8Ball on my son’s iPad but that wasn’t enough to make me invest. I’m not a fan of touch screen typing … I do like to feel (and hear) those buttons … and to type ‘blind’, so the same goes for the iPhone, (which is why I’m still using a Blackberry). I think there are some great apps though, but none that I need.
