    A sight you think you would not see

    Have not posted for a while but for those who do remember me ( and know me a bit ) here is a picture I bet you all thought you would not expect to see.....
    And yep it's mine and yes I bought it and yes the more I use it the more I prefer it.

    I have it on my Windows 7 box but it's easier on my new shiny mac !! The retina display is amazing. I love the keyboard, I love the weight, I will install Win7 as a VM for work purposes only. With 16 GB ram and a 250 SSD I will have more than enough room on it.

    Bootcamp finally works on 2013 macbooks now with w8 gestures too. The display is good but it should be for the price and windows looks awesome on it. If you use bootcamp you can run it as a vm as well as booting into it when you need as well.

    Yeah I remember when mattx used to be....

    EDIT: Also I edited the title to "sight" rather than "site"

    I did consider doing that but I have a quite good spec Windows 7 laptop for work that I can use however, I've just got the open vpn client working on the mac..... only issue is dns as its not part of the domain and I don't really want to add it - I may just make the Win7 VM part of the domain instead.
