Join us for a solo perspective on Tom's new MacBook, a.k.a.
"Bigfoot"! Losing tiny rubber feet at the bottom corners may be a
thing of the past, thanks to wider, flush-mounted feet. But wait,
We don't talk about the MacBook's new Intel processor, perceived
speed, or included software in this episode--just its industrial
design, which is so impressive that it deserves its own episode.
Lest you think we're Apple apologists, let it be known this episode
was delayed several weeks due to the MacBook's hard drive failing
two days after Tom received it, and a very sluggish repair period
on Apple's part.
FYI, solo perspective episodes occur when one of us cannot lend a
product to the other for "mission critical" reasons. This is Tom's
new primary computer, and he reflects on the continuous improvement
of Apple's laptop designs. (Tim still prefers his 12" PowerBook G4
