So, ok I turned the big 30 (well big ish) so I decided to treat myself to some new hardware ..
BUT IT'S TAKING TOO LONG TO ARRIVE!! lol ..
MacBook Pro 15" i7 with a few tweaks (couldn't really justify the extra £1k to get the 512GB SSD though .. think the wife probably is thinking of killing me enough having spent what I have on the MBP itself! lol)
But also got a shiny Magic Mouse, which I quite like despite some reviews slating it here and there, and the other new toy I'm awaiting to arrive (when released) CS5 Master Suite ..
Now I just need the lovely Mac Display to sit on my desk at home to plug into!
Oh, and a new DSLR would be great too, but I'll leave that for a short while, else I won't make it to a year of being married me somehow thinks! lol ..
Anyway, I just wanted to share that .. what new toys are other people buying at the moment .. anyone planning on getting the iPad (or been lucky enough to play on one or import one somehow? are they really worth all the hype?) .. I have to say I'm intrigued, but then the iPhone HD (or whatever they end up calling it) may be upon us soon enough from the looks of the Gizmodo escapades ..
I've just had the call to say that its arrived so I get to have a play over the weekend
You'll have to let us know what it's like. I've been a Canon Man to now, and though I love Sony Camcorders for capturing Video, I've never really looked at their DSLR range, but the 7FPS seems quite nice!
I've been tempted by Nikons various ranges at the moment too. lol ..
The A550 got 89% in What Digital Camera's review. It been tempted by a Nikon D90 but couldn't justify spending all that money (getting married in Aug). There was a good deal on the Canon 450D with Jessops with twin lenses, lowepro bag and tripod. However, the 450D is about two years old now and the Sony is newer. My opposite number at Milford Haven Port Authority is a Canon man, he's recenyly upgraded to an EOS 50D. His pics are here: Flickr: AIex Brown's Photostream
i was looking at getting a hp slate but as that appears to no longer be a win 7 device im rethinking as slate that can be a full pc if needed sounds good a slate that runs some odd os dosent appeal at all. Other than that i want a volvo s40 but dont want to spend the cash to change cars esp after ive only had this car 18 months
