New computer, yaaay ^o^!

I have bought a new computer!

I discovered the Apple store was having several specials/sales, so I decided to just go for it. It was shocking to see such a big number in the Order Total slot, though ^^;.

I got a black MacBook. It has a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of memory, and a 250GB hard drive. I know more and more computers have specs like that nowadays, but to me, it's really super impressive compared to my current computer's 1.25 GHz processor, 512MB memory, and 40GB hard drive XD. *excited for an upgrade*

I got an iPod Touch (8GB) also, because if you buy a computer now at the Apple store, you'll a full rebate. So yay, a free iPod that I can sell (I love my current iPod too much to ditch it ^^;). I also got a $100 printer, which comes with a $100 rebate.

THE BEST PART is that I bought Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. For $200 (when you use a student discount combined with buying a computer). Holy crap, I've always wanted a legit version of Photoshop, but there's no way I could pay upwards of $400-$600 just for a program. Apparently I can pay $200, though XD. That's what pushed me over the edge to buy the computer XDD. *is a photoshop whore*

[/dork talk]

So yes, I'm poorer, but excited ^o^. It's not very often I can make such purchases. Now I'm just hoping the computer doesn't crap out on me while I'm in Japan ^^; (although the AppleCare would take care of troubles in Japan). I don't know how I would do, if I had to try and talk computer troubles with someone in Japanese XD;. OH WELL, hopefully everything will be okay.

I am quite jealous of your computer. Really, truly. Tezuka is only a year+ old but I'm already jonesing for a new one. T_T Why can't I ever be happy with what I have?

That's the bad thing about technology. 5 minutes after you take it out of the box, it's considered a paper weight in the tech world. OH WELL.

Don't abandon your Tezuka yet! I'd wait another year or two, because I bet anything Apple is going to develop a happy medium between the super thin MacBook Air and the 1 3/4"-thick MacBook. It's gonna be glorious. I would wait too, but I really need a laptop to take with me to Japan ^^;.

I know, I really hate that about technology! It seems like such a waste at times.

I won't lie--I'm strictly a windows girl. For one, I've used Macs before and they just feel foreign and unknown to me. And for what I use my computer for, windows is just as good. My boyfriend is a huge Mac whore though. The computer he's looking at now is right around $2500 and it makes me cry inside when I think of how much money that is.

I think I've been brainwashed by my father to love Apple computers. We've had only Apple computers in the house since I was born, and me and my brother have only every bought Apple computers. So how you feel that Apples are foreign, I feel that about Windows XD.

Yeah, the price tag on Apple laptops can get pricey, but I decided to go ahead and splurge a bit. I got a minor inheritance a year or so ago, which I stuffed into a bank account to gain some interest, and deemed it my computer/going to Japan fund. Apparently I can't afford a computer unless someone dies, so hopefully I won't need a new computer for awhile XD;. WHO WILL BE NEXT TO FUND MY COMPUTER NEEDS? DUN DUN DUN.

Yay! I'm glad that you found out about the rebates. Erik got the same thing when he bought his. We sold both the ipod and the printer on amazon, since we already had one of each. xD

Sorry I didn't answer the phone last night. I was kind of dying a painful death, but I'm better now.

Erik's had his Macbook for like two years now. The only problem he has is that the fan is suddenly freakin' loud. We've sprayed it out with a can of air but that doesn't seem to help. He even has one of those cooling stand thingers. I keep telling him to take it to the Mac store and have them check it out before it gets any worse, but he's a boy and boys are weird!

The rebates are bad ass! I get a free iPod and a free printer, and save $400 on a LEGIT copy of Photoshop? Sweet XD. You know me and photoshop-- that's prettymuch why I hurried to purchase the computer immediately XD.

Well, I guess you're off the hook for not answering if you were DYING. Are you okay o.o?

Sheesh. I'd use any excuse I could to go to Mac store! That place is so pimp! Just tell him you really REALLY want to go, and then sneak his laptop with you. He'd better get it fixed before his AppleCare insurance is done with, or else you're stuck with paying for it if the computer explodes ^^;;;. And you're right-- boys ARE weird!
