The End / by Roger Kapsi

My first computer was technically speaking an Amiga 500 but I didn't use it for anything more than playing Video Games.

Fast-forward to 1994 or so, my mother decided to get a Mac. I didn't know much about Computers back then and all I knew was that my friends have Windows PCs. It can't be so much different, right?

We bought a Macintosh Performa 630 CD (a.k.a. Quadra/LC 630). In retrospective this must have been at the peak of the Motorola 68k CPUs. I did everything with this computer. I taught myself C (reading books in English without knowing English - pretty remarkable) and I even did some Java on it. 

The Performa 630 was eventually replaced by a Power Macintosh G3 (Desktop), and then by a Power Macintosh G3 (Blue & White) and then by a Power Mac G5The G5 was my last Desktop computer I have bought and my parents are still using it at home.

I had also an iBook G3 and most of its Intel CPU based MacBook successors (not all of them though and none of the MacBook Air or Pro).

The MacBook I had before was at my brother's, the current one was showing signs of aging and conveniently he was coming to visit me. I figured I'll simply give it to him and get a new computer. But which one? After almost 20 years of using Macs at home (I have never owned a non-Apple Computer at home) I simply don't feel the ♥ for Apple anymore and every gathering of people with Computers (e.g. Starbucks) reminds me of Apple's 1984 TV Commercial.

After a lot of back and forth and debating what Laptop to get (e.g. Samsung Series 9, Lenovo Carbon X1) I settled on Dell's XPS 13 Developer Edition and I like it. 

The End.
