Break Free

Well, the moment is here. My laptop has given all it’s got and it’s time to bite the bullet and buy a new one. I bought this particular laptop 6 years ago to replace one I was having constant problems with. Sadly, when the genius at Apple (hey, that’s what they call themselves, right?) migrated…
