Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011)

Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011)

When I first joined mig33 back on 1st February 2010, I got a brand new MacBook Pro 15″ (Mid 2009) running on Intel Core 2 Duo (2.66 GHz) and with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Over the years, my MacBook Pro became slower and slower as applications get more and more intensive and OS gets more and more resource demanding.

I made a couple of “complains” to my immediate supervisor and eventually he approved my Purchase Order (PO) to get a new MacBook.

Bought the Apple TV (2nd Generation) from San Francisco’s Apple Store for US$99 (after tax is US$107.67 = S$136.96).

I wish they sold it in Singapore but because there is no iTunes Movies/TV Shows rental service in Singapore, I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Nevertheless, it is still not a bad media player for that price. Not forgetting that the Apple TV is powered by Apple A4 chip.

After my trip to Google Building 44, I headed down to Apple – The Company Store which is located at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA 95014. It is about 15 minutes drive from Google Building 44.

The famous “I visited the mothership” t-shirt is no longer in print, and now the new t-shirt design prints “I visited the Apple campus, but that’s all I’m allowed to say.”

The Apple iPhone Micro USB Adapter is currently only being sold in the UK Apple Stores (both online and retail) for £8.00 (S$16.23).

I bought it from the Apple Store at Regent Street when I was there in London for Nokia World 2011. I think it is a good gift to give to people who are Apple fans because you can’t get it anywhere else in the world!

Bought the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit before my flight to London in iStudio located in Changi Airport Terminal 3 for S$54.21. Since I was departing to London and have a valid boarding pass, I do not need to pay the 7% GST/tax, if not the normal price is S$58.

The Kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple MagSafe Power Adapters (for MacBook and MacBook Pro), Portable Power Adapters (for iBook and PowerBook), and AirPort Express.

The Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter is for 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro. Got it in Hong Kong for only HK$588 (~S$93). It is selling for S$128 in Singapore!

I am also using a 15″ MacBook Pro for work and I have a power adapter at work, it has been wired so nicely that it makes removing it very difficult and hence I decided to get a spare power adapter that allows me to bring it along when I am on call.

Got my iPad 2 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G thanks to my friend/neighbour who went to queue up at 6am at Infinite at VivoCity and on the way got it for me! If you are reading this, Thanks Pei Jun!

Similar to iPad 1 launch, 1 person is entitled to buy 2 iPad 2 only. The stocks are extremely limited especially white! My friend was 5th in the queue and the white 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G was already sold out. So I am guessing the previous 4 person got like 2x white each.

Bought the Magic Trackpad at iStudio located at Changi Airport Terminal 3 on Friday before I left for Jakarta, Indonesia. On the same day, Apple Singapore is having a Chinese New Year Sale. As there are no 7% tax at the airport, it amounts to about the same price as the CNY sale. Got it for S$91.59. In fact, if you are getting more expensive items like MacBook Pro or Air, it is even cheaper at the airport than during the CNY sale.

My boss got the Apple MacBook Air 11.6″ from the US for one of our business partner . It is the 11.6″ with 64GB of SSD. Apple Singapore is selling it for S$1,488 while the US is selling for US$999.

As the the MacBook Air does not belong to me, I did not power it on, only compared the size and weight of it to my iPad, Macbook Pro and my Asus EEE 1000HE.

Order my iPod Nano (6th Generation) on the 30th September 2010 and I received it today. Actually DHL attempted to deliver to my house yesterday but I was not around. This make me realize that they do deliver on weekend. I always thought they are on a 5 days week.

I chose the Graphite color because i think it will blend well with my black Crumpler bag (too bad they do not have black). Picked the 16GB instead of the 8GB because it is only S$50 (S$278 vs S$228) difference and my music collection is about there.
