Boca Raton, Florida Video

www.Alfred.TV READ ME FIRST Some footage at the Apple Store in Boca Raton, Florida, and my thoughts on the new MacBook and MacBook Pro 'Brick' Laptops from Apple. I purposely avoided ALL articles, reviews, keynote speech, blogs, writings on bathroom walls, the Rosetta stone, CNN, NBC, Fox, and The Disney Channel so as not to be influenced by anyone else. I wanted to give you my thoughts AFTER seeing the new laptop IN PERSON. Overall, I give the new MacBook and MacBook Pro "Bricks" (based on their new manufacturing process) two thumbs up. Stellar machines. If you'd like to receive alerts to interesting articles as well as updates on my latest videos and live webcasts, then please subscribe to my microblog on Twitter!
