Five weeks and counting! My courses start 5 weeks from today and I’m super excited. I’m trying to get prepared for it. Waiting to order my books, check daily for my transcript transfers, trying to explain to hubs why the purchase of a MacBook could be the difference between success and total failure… 🙂
Seriously guys, help me out. We have an iMac. The reason we have the iMac is because the Dell PC we had got a nifty little virus that practically ate all of our data. If not for the wonderful skills of one of our IT guys at work, all would have been lost. So, we (I) decided that it was time to upgrade to the Apple family with just a little bit of apprehension from my main man. Since then Mr. Skeptic has the new iPad and is chomping at the bit for the new iPhone 5. Hmmmmm, how quickly we come around…
And ladies, you know how this is, if he wants it, he gets it, if we want it, it costs too much money. I know my baby will read this and it’s probably a good thing I’m not with him when he does, but he knows the truth of what I say (LOVE YOU HON!!!).
So here is my logic (and if anyone has any further logic that can help my case PLEASE share away!!!!), we have the iMac which we both love. We also still have that expensive paper weight called the Dell PC. It works, and by works, I mean, you can turn it on and it will boot up. Beyond that, I’m not so sure. It’s been stripped down to it’s factory settings but I suspect there might still be a little bug living in there somewhere that’s set up permanent shop. Sitting inside my laptop, drinking a rum, causing all sorts of havoc. Bastard. It runs slow, even with nothing extra on it and it scares the hell out of me to think that I’ll be right in the middle of a large assignment/paper having forgotten to save after the last three pages and POOF!, that damn squatter decides it would be a fun game to mess with me once again. I can’t take the stress and anxiety!
BUT, with a MacBook (Air or Pro…I’m not picky), the transition from desktop and laptop would be seamless, all the apps we have will work on both, switching back and forth between them would be super easy with the cloud, I’m MUCH less likely to get a new family of freeloaders coming in and eating all of my hard work…you get the idea.
I’ve done the research, been to the Apple store and looked at the laptops. Honestly, I would be happy with the entry level Air which happens to be their cheapest version. Just a little 11″ screen, which, when you actually look at it, is not all that bad. Since I’m a student, I can get education pricing, PLUS a $100.00 app store gift card. Not bad, not bad at all.
So, I think I have a good case for a new laptop. Come on baby…CAN I HAVE ONE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
(I’m so in trouble for this when I get home…) 😉
