Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

MacBook Pro Design Flaw?

By Abby at 11:19 am on Tuesday, June 16, 2009

I got a MacBook Pro 13″. It’s cool, and yes, it’s one of the new ones announced last week. I’m really loving it so far. It’s the first Mac I’ve ever owned (unless you count the iPhone, and I don’t). My ex-husband always had Macs, so there are very few things that I don’t know how to do right off the bat. The gestures on the trackpad are new, so I’m learning those slowly – as needed.

I have but one small complaint, and it relates to the design of the body itself. There is an extremely sharp 90-degree angle where my wrists rest, so that there’s always a little digging in my skin on the underside of my wrists/lower forearms. I thought Mac was all about design? Maybe they are going more for visual than functional with this choice? I really am perplexed. Since it’s a Mac, I keep thinking I must be “doing it wrong!”

Sharp Corner

Ouch, My Wrist!

A router with a demi bullnose bit will sort that out. Seriously though, that does seem to be a real flaw. Apple fanboys will probably tout their improved posture they had to adopt to avoid being scarred for life on their macbooks.

Yeah, I have a white MacBook, and it has the same issue. I know with the plastic ones eventually the edge wears a little, but I doubt aluminum will wear as much. I don’t know if there is a good answer for this one.

I think its a secret signal to other mac book pro users. You’re in the club 🙂

Well, I’m finding it VERY uncomfortable. And no, I don’t keep my wrists up when I type. Never been a problem before.
