My vintage 2008 Macbook is eagerly gazing at the pasture that has been beckoning it for a few years now. I have replaced the hard-drive and maxed out the RAM, but the poor little guy is simply ready for a well-deserved rest. So - what's next for me and when? Macbook Pro? Air? iMac? iPad?

iPad 2 + Wireless Keyboard, in India.

But with an external keyboard, shouldn't I be able to use the QWERTY Hindi keyboard available on my Mac? Anyone have any idea how I can make this happen?
Is there software that lets me move around an ipad/iphone/android in 3D space and see the world through a huge collection of old photo?
