The Dick Smith of my childhood was a magical place. I would beg my parents to take me there, so that I might see Age of Empires II projected large onto a giant screen, or spend a few precious minutes racing cars on a demo console.

You Can Upgrade A Macbook Faster Than You Can Boil An Egg

There’s one big drawback to Apple’s thin, svelte laptop: once you pull the trigger on a Macbook, you’re generally stuck with the specs for life. So when a company claims to offer an idiot-proof SSD upgrade, it’s worth checking out.
