….. and my personal computer at home and at school was an Apple ][

The Apple ][ served me well for a few years, but it was not long after this that I made the move to IBM Compatible computers. Even when the Macintosh was introduced 3 years later in 1984, I stayed the course with the PC, a computer operating system that would carry me for the next 2 1/2 decades and well into the Windows era.

That all changed two weeks ago when I made the switch back to my Apple roots. With the introduction of the new MacBook computer, I have changed to a Mac laptop. So far, I have no regrets. I had been wanting to move to the Mac platform for a few years, but my dependency on Windows for a few select programs has kept me from switching. However, with the recent change by Apple to using Intel processors and the Mac’s newfound ability to run Windows, I made the plunge (for more on this, visit http://www.apple.com/bootcamp).

Today’s capture of the Apple Logo was made by taking a shot of the logo on the lid of the new laptop and bumping the contrast to an extreme in Photoshop.
