UP Gadgets, Games and Geeks: Lust for Apple Mac

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 9-Aug-2007 09:34

Last night I attended the Unlimited Potential Gadgets, Games and Geeks event. Quite interesting, although disappointing to see less exhibitors than last year's event.

Great chat - met with some of the Wellington bloggers (Sandy, Brenda, Stuart), tech friends (Sam Ng, John Clegg) and some of the Geekzone users based here in Wellington (inanerscole86, sbiddle).

The talks were interesting, with the keynote Brian Sweeney talking about the NZ Edge. Speakers ranged from gaming development here in Wellington through OpenSolaris development (yes, there's someone in the project here in Wellington as well).

Now, if Rennaisance Apple division's Lee Hebert would send me a MacBook similar to the one he used for his demo, I would be inclined to try it for a while - and even get one myself if it's really that fast even after loading all the programs we need. Seeing how fast he started Windows XP Pro on Parallels made me say to Geekzoners around (and my wife after the event) that I would switch.

Seriously fast. Faster than my top of the range 64 bit Acer Ferrari.
