Moving over to the dark side
I am quite pleased to announce, that I have left the light of the force and now embrace the dark side. Or perhaps I have left the dark side and found the power of the force, depending on who you talk to. Yes, as of a couple of days ago, I have gone Mac. A 12" PowerBook, to be exact. With superdrive and extra memory.
This was not an easy move. I can remember that one of the first computers I drooled over, back when I was young(er), was the first Macintosh - I had been quite fond of the Apple 2 series, such as 2E and 2C as well. But then I ended up hanging out in a circle of programming types, and they instilled in me the idea that Apple is evil - presumably because it's harder to customize, which shouldn't have been a problem for me as I don't usually do much of that with my computers...but the damage was done. I happily scorned Apple for many years. And then....
1) IPOD. I just simply couldn't resist.
2) My boyfriend replaced the house computer with an IMAC, which got me back into using the things, then...
3) I found that my previous notebook was not current enough to play Sims 2. This meant that it had to go (well, had to become my backup computer as it turns out). And then...
4) Shockingly, as I had a very tiny notebook, and would settle for nothing with larger than a 12" screen to replace it, Apple was actually my cheapest choice.
So now, I am much poorer, but in return, I have a much faster machine, a larger keyboard...and Sims 2 (though alas I could not afford the 'more time to play computer games' module). I also have widgets, which are so super-cool that they should probably have their own post.
Does this mean that I am now officially evil? Or that I have finally seen the light? Or what?
