In November of 2009 I bought my first Mac. While I worked on Macs in my job, I had always been a PC man at home. But on that year’s Black Friday I found an incredible deal on a 13″ Macbook Pro and I felt like my home computing life evolved to a higher state of being!
Three years on I found myself wishing I could afford to upgrade this past Black Friday, but this was just not going to happen. This left me in a bit of a difficult situation. This range of Mac’s were notoriously under-powered and with three years of heavy use, my own one had slowed to a crawl with it showing of the beach-ball of joy at every other move of the mouse!
