When I first owned a MacBook Pro, I felt intimidated by its unusual operating system. After all, I have been accustomed to Microsoft Windows. But the feeling of intimidation was also accompanied by awe. I adored the simple yet sophisticated design, its attractive icons, and playful apps. After using the MacBook Air for more than two years, I realized how simple everything works. It is the embodiment of art and functionality.
Now, I am reading Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, and this book will forever change the way I view the MacBook. In this keyboard, where my hands busily type, lies years of imagination, creation, history, and perfection.
Somehow, by simply owning this piece of artistic machinery, I feel like I’m a part of its glorious history. In every key and letter, I can see and feel Steve Jobs’s vision that materialized into reality. His vision was to create an “insanely great” product, and there are millions of people, who like me, can testify that he succeeded!
