Almost time for a new computer

It’s almost time to retire my laptop. It’s been pretty sketchy for a while now. But it served it’s purpose well for 5 years and has been through a lot, including getting squished on the plane. which caused a the main board to crack and need replacement.

The replacement will be an Apple MacBook.

With the Canadian dollar at a record highs it is actually significantly cheaper for me to drive down to the US. Total savings could be as much as $340 so it’s worth the trip. Is there anything else I should add to the shopping list for a trip to Seattle?

The desktop computer is holding up pretty well with Linux on there. Over the weekend I’m going to upgrade the OS (again) to the latest beta version of Ubunutu so I can get the latest version of some libraries.
