This is for all Macbook and MBP users. On a daily basis...what do you use your MB/MBP for?
Internet/mail/blogging, iTunes, word processing (usually in Pages).
Once a week - audio editing (Garageband) and photo organizing and fixing.
About twice a month - making videos.
Making a living.......
I use my MBP for
Occasionally real work
I would like to use my MBP for Camera RAW editing, but the screen just doesn't cut it, and both Aperture and Lightroom won't allow me to work in sRGB workspace, so I have to resort to Capture one pro on my XP desktop to do my processing workflow.
What do you mean the screen doesn't cut it? I'm surprised you would have to resort to working on a XP desktop to get the job done. I know alot that do professional photography and have yet to touch a PC for anything.
I use mine for web browsing, itunes, iphoto.
Preserving my VHS tapes. Video editing from my Camcorder, Music watching, 1080p movies, mail, internet, photo booth, a little bit of everything basically.
the screen on a MBP is nowhere near good enough for "proper" color correction and print work. i use a MBP and hook it to an external monitor for that sort of thing.
Matlab all the time ! Sometimes Xcode..
Apps I use more than once a week:
it's amazing how much you can fit on one of these hard drives and with multiple quicktime windows, it's a dream...
sorry... someone was thinking it...
My MacBook Pro stays pretty busy. I did purchase it primarily for photo editing. I use the following almost everyday:
Photoshop, Bridge, Lightroom, Skype, Adium, Handbreak, MacTheRipper, Office, iTunes, VLC, Firefox
Refreshingly candid reply ... and you surely have lots of company.
Web browsing, email, adium, word processing, translating languages, music, sometimes movies (prefer TV for that), Handbrake and likes, photo editing in aperture/photoshop, rarely video editing in Final cut pro/Motion, also, iWeb/dreamweaver for my site and some GarageBand when I feel like making music
Edit: lol forgot gaming
Everything my XP box used to do and more
Mainly browsing, mail, itunes, hey a bit of comic life is good
For work I use the vmware fusion on it.
I nearly bought another macmini as a media centre but thought I would save the cash and instead just use the macbook to play full 1080p movies through my 47" HD LCD. its great, its connected via DVI-HDMI and also use the optical out of the Macbook to give full 5.1 sound.
I use mine for watching porn, DVDs, downloading videos, iTunes, iPhoto, mail, Skype and word processing.
My MBP gets used for Internet, email, iTunes, syncing iTunes with my iPhone and 160GB Classic and that's about it.
Web browsing, email, graphics design, web development, and music. And sometimes the occasional game in my Boot Camp partition.
Internet Browsing, mail, Entertainment (music, movies), bootcamp (games, ms office, 3d modeling).
Internet surfing, iTunes, occasional Photoshop, Aidum, sometimes video editing, word processing, key note.
Pretty much everything...internet, office work, web development, WoW, etc. But the main reason I bought it was for photo management and audio recording.
I'm building a PC this weekend to take care of my gaming fix
Internet/mail/iTunes and pics
I use mine to run a numerical weather prediction model.
The Basics.. plus 3D, Graphic Design, Photo Retouching, Motion Graphics, Live VJ'ing, Web Design, Programing, Tinkering and a little gaming.
Career, research and fun.
Hey, don't put me in the same room as pamon.....
