From Patrick Rhone:
The idea here is to slowly, methodically, and purposefully build the perfect computer. Perfect in this case is subjective. Perfect is what is exactly right and enough for you. Just as mine is for me. The Mac is a great foundation on which to build this exciting new future. Have fun!
My natural inclination has always tended towards excess, to try out yet another app just because I think I should.
Lately, I find myself more and more enchanted with Patrick’s idea of enough. finding just what you need to do whatever it is you want/need to do. No more, no less. While my own breed of “enough” will always likely tend towards more, I’m finding that success is coming faster as my system feels lighter.
If you’re just starting out with the Mac, read the full article over on MinimalMac, it will show you just how powerful the machine can be right out of the box. Then again, if you are looking for a few power apps to make life just a little easier, I’m happy to oblige with a few suggestions of my own.
