    I realize this may be a really dumb question but do all Apple MacBooks have that airdrop thingy thing we use all the time between phone and iPad?
    We need a new laptop.
    Looking at the new MacBook Air.
    Hoping not to have to spend the money on a pro.

    Thanks man. We ended up getting the MBP 15 inch with the task bar and all the goodies.
    My man’s laptop was a 2010 MBP that had fallen and crashed onto a cement floor a couple of times and ... well that poor thing needed to be put out of its misery

    No problem. But I thought you weren’t looking to spend the money on a Pro? Lol. What changed you guys mind? Great choice on a computer though!

    No I was really planning on saving money so I didn’t upgrade my phone.
    Which is a good thing because this happened.

    Setting up is taking a while (a bloody megaton of stuff to transfer, old forgotten passwords, getting used to the new everything etc) but dayum, what a sweet ride this one is.
    The display is to die for. It’s ridiculously fast. And oh, baby the thingy bar is downright insane.
    I daresay... it’s worth the eye gouging price. There, I’ve said it.
