I’ve been so happy with my service from Apple on my 2012 Macbook Pro. You may recall I’ve been trying to justify and find a way to upgrade to a newer fancier MBP (2018 MBP Fail) and I’ve not been able to justify the cost of a new machine. Of course, my machine decided it […]
Some people want two-seater sports cars. Me, I like a bigger, more powerful experience. And Apple’s newest MBP offerings seemed to offer promise. But in the end, I’m back to my 2012 MBP.
