Jan 10 2006: Apple introduces a new Intel based Macbook!

16 yeas ago today… er… yesterday Steve Jobs introduced the new Intel based Apple laptops giving the world the first MacBook.

I didn’t think much when they first came out but it wasn’t many years later that I picked up my only MacBook - a white MacBook (non pro). Then a few years later an iMac for my wife. When I transitioned back to Windows I ended up keeping the MacBook around for testing on OSX and when it finally went to the big, crowded, Apple store in the sky getting 2 consecutive minis to sit in the server closet for when those MacOS testing needs arose.

I’ve completely left the Apple ecosystem behind with my lone surviving mini now exclusively running windows 10. And only running local Minecraft servers.

With the M1 Macs I find myself interested in dipping back into the Apple world again to see if I miss it after all these years. From all reports I’ve heard webdev is a dream on the M1 and even better on the M1 Pro/Max.
