"the Apple of our eyes"


Our boss returned from Singapore last week with a surprise for Team Marketing: an Apple PowerBook G4! We got all excited when we saw the box and couldn't wait until our IT Admin had registered the unit with Apple and installed Adobe CS2 and Macromedia.

When we finally laid our hands on the laptop, we got a bit disoriented at how the controls work but after some time of fiddling around with it, we became familiar with the basics.

It has a wide screen display, with a default resolution of 1440 x 960. The colors are simply simply amazing, the images sharp. Our blogs even look better on the PowerBook! And it's fast!

We will be using this tool to work on graphics, web development, and desktop publishing. We have requested for another Apple computer as well, this time the desktop version (G5). Something new to fiddle around with at work. Staying in the office became more exciting. And this is officially my first post using the PowerBook!

  1. Your lucky. I would love to get a new Mac. I am still pluging along on my 12" 867Mhz PowerBook. I really would like on with a 17" screen but I will wait for the Intel books to come out in that size before upgrading.

  2. oooh. 17" screen! Ours has 15.something inches. the 17 must be a wonder to behold. We were rooting for the Intel-based version as well but it was not yet available.

  5. Hello Jgotangco! The PowerBook retails 1,999 USD and I have no intention of ever buying one. Para sa gatas na lang ni Jo-Lo! :-). At least I get to know and work with MacOS in my lifetime and for that I thank my boss.

    Babewolf, gamit ko pa rin lumang IBM ko. Ayoko nga i-release hehehe. Share namin itong laptop sa team until the desktop arrives.

    Niceheart, ang ganda ng MacOS!

    *dreams of mac mini*
    yeah right, dream on.

    p.s. i think bfn has created an rss feed of sorts, which displays on the front page whenever a member blog is updated. new updates display in about 15 minutes or something like that.

  7. welcome to the world of MACs! kaya pala tumawag ka sa akin yesterday to ask about Indesign.

    Wish ko lang na may pera ako pang powerbook or the upcoming macbook pro pero hanggang ibook lang ang kaya ko.

    I'm not sure if you should get the G5 since they are already going towards the Intel-powered units. feeling ko when macworld comes around in june/july they'll be announcing something new again.

  12. Thanks sa input Bambit on the blue fish! Love your aquarium fish too!

    Cherry, actually when I told my boss that new mac models were coming out, he said, ok let's wait til next year to purchase. There's a new model coming out every 6 months to 1 year. He had a point there. Besides, we have a lot of pending graphics work na. We're all happy naman. The intel-based ones were not available in Singapore.

    Hizzey chu! Shizznet!

    Thanks dessagirl!

    Jeff! Musta na! Ang ganda ng resolution ng apple!

    Hi Greg. Actually sa office nga lang ito e. I wish I can also buy one.

  14. the intel-powered units were only made available in the US late February. It'll take some time for the units to trickle into Asia.

  15. Ang galing daw ng I-Mac G5 sabi ng friend ko from the US. Iyon kasi ang gamit niya.
