Just got back from the Apple Store at The Grove where I bought a new computer. I had intended to get a basic MacBook so I could have a smaller, more portable laptop instead of my bulky Apple PowerBook Notebook 17″ . I thought I’d get a lower end model, largely because it’d be the cheapest. And anyway, the main purpose of the computer was to have something more compact so I could more easily grab it and go (to a cafe or similar locale) when I get stuck working at home.
But, when I had started playing around with the computers last week at the Store, I contemplated spending a little more money so I could get a little nicer computer.
Oh well. At least it was a lot cheaper than my current computer. Anyway, I haven’t yet had time to set it up, but this new smaller computer will have nearly four times the RAM as the one on which I type, perhaps making it easier and faster for me to blog when I travel and visit cafes.
It’s so much fun getting a new computer, especially when it’s a Mac. And I always end up getting the extras. This may well be the first machine I bought specifically to facilitate my blogging. We’ll see if it succeeds in helping me become a better blogger.
I should also note the amazing service I got at the AppleStore. It was a real pleasure to buy this computer; the cute (somewhat geeky) guy and quite possibly lesbian woman who helped me couldn’t have been more accommodating. I may have to write to Apple singling these two out for their efforts.
