I bought a ridiculous laptop

My 2013 almost-top-tier Macbook Pro 15 I got in college lasted me almost 10 years. That aluminum beast cemented in my mind the lasting power of the Mac as a laptop platform.

Now, now, before the horde of legacy Thinkpad stans come at me with pitchforks – yes I know the same can be said about a nearly 10 year old Thinkpad that’s been through countless upgrades. But what the Thinkpads don’t have is the sheer engineering and art (thanks Johnny Ive) of the Macbook. It’s just beautiful to look at!

So I figure this laptop will last me until Apple will no longer support it. That’s how long – and even longer – I held on to my old Macbook.

Nope. Not that I’ve taxed it a lot lately but It’s been silent. The CPU cores regularly hover around 41-45C but to the touch the machine stays less than luke-warm. It’s brilliant.

Yes, but I am working on getting it there with yabai-tiling-wm-for-mac but… I’ve embraced the 1-app-1-workspace lifesyle and just swipe between the spaces.
