I am determined to overcome the obstacles that continue to keep me from blogging! It has been a difficult week, as I mentioned in my last post, but I plan to make up a few posts and continue following an ongoing thematic blog posting schedule for November, based on ideas from the Ultra Blog Challenge and the Article Writing Challenge, so I can reach my goal of 30 posts for this month.
This belated post for Monday, November 17th, is a product review of the MacBook Pro, the laptop I’ve had for a few years.
I had wanted a laptop for quite awhile, to have the freedom to move around and work wherever I wanted to–and then, out of the blue, a writing client gifted me with this MacBook Pro a few years ago for Christmas!
It took a little while to get used to NOT having a mouse, but instead working with a touch pad. The keys are also much more responsive to touch, so no need to “mash” keys like I had been needing to do on my PC keyboard.
I think my favorite feature, though, is the Retina Display. Text and images alike are super clear and crisp, and with as much time as I spend on my laptop every day, it’s nice to have such a crystal clear display. I can really tell the difference when I look at my hubby’s computer screen, or even my Asus laptop, which I got after receiving the MacBook.
And that is probably the only negative thing I can say about it–for whatever reason, there’s an incompatibility issue between my MacBook and my Epson printer that I use to create my imprinted photo products, such as this one, so I had to have a laptop/computer with Windows:
My MacBook has even survived having a drink dumped onto the keyboard (thanks to a cat walking by on the desk when I was sitting at my hubby’s desk!) AND a dog biting the charging cord and shorting everything out!

So what about you? Do you own a MacBook? If not, what type of laptop or computer to you use? What are your favorite features?
