Exactly a week ago I got lucky and found a MacBook Pro 14 M1 Pro in my color of choice Space Gray. I’ve been looking to buy one for days but couldn’t find an online seller with stocks of the base model. Even with contacts from Greenhills. Authorized resellers like Power Mac Center are of course selling them at ridiculously higher prices. Not sure whether stocks are being held because of the recent announcement of the M2 Pro and M2 Max models. I wasn’t really expecting prices to go down but knowing the demand it would probably happen in a few months when the newer models are released here. I would have settled with the M2 MacBook Air or MacBook Pro 13, but I couldn’t justify the price and the specs, so I’ve been eyeing the 14-inch model, it’s just not available. Luckily I found one, supposedly the last stock, at a very good price and it was delivered the same day I ordered, go check my Tiktok.continue reading »

And in that rare instance that I left my MBP on my home office table overnight was the time our air conditioner leaked and was dripping water droplets that slowly puddled to the spot where the MBP is plugged in. It would have been too late if I hadn’t woken up to the nightmarish sound of water droplets falling one after another.
Was having a hard time snapping out of the early morning grogginess, popped a pill and chugged a glass of stale soda and immediately went to work on reviving my MBP – read on to see what I did that got it working again.continue reading »
