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*
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.
