iBook!!
I bought an iBook! Well, I ordered it, anyway. It should arrive in a couple of days.

While I really hate spending this money right now, my poor little computer is on its last legs and I needed to replace it before it completely died. I've been debating getting a new computer for about 6 months (well, I've wanted a new computer for 2 years, but I've been seriously considering it and looking at options for a few months). A couple days ago I asked Seth if he thought me getting a new computer was a possibility and he said "figure out what you want and just do it" Yay for him! And yay for me. So then I just had to finish agonizing over whether I wanted another Windows machine or a Mac.

Everyone I've told so far, with one exception, has said, "I didn't know you were a mac person." Well, yes. I've had macs. And I've had windows machines. I play on both sides of the fence. Is that so wrong? Maybe I just don't like commitment.

Anyway, Jon came over and let me play with OS X and, well, it rocks. So the iBook won. Anyway, it'll be something fun and new to play with. Here's hoping the novelty doesn't wear off quickly! :)

Current Mood: happy happy

MACS RULE...

Well, yes. I've had macs. And I've had windows machines. I play on both sides of the fence. Is that so wrong?

You know, I make the same argument when people find out I'm bi. Naw, there's nothing wrong with it.

I do windows at work and mac at home. And yes, OSX does rock. It's so much more stable....

Darnit. I want an iBook, but iGor my iMac will have to do for a coupla more years...

Dammit. That was SO what I was going to name my computer. Now I have to come up with something new!

Re: iGor

No, no, now...

You can still call it "iGor."

I'll have iGor the iMac and you'll have iGor the iBook...

Gosh, I really like "Young Frankenstein":

Woohoo! iBooks Rock. (Being a total geek) Which one did you get? Its okay, you can tall me. Personally I have three macs, a very old pwerbook, a 5400, and a G3 tower (yikes). They all have different names, but the G3 is Holly/Hilly becase it always had dual operating systems in it, until I got OSX. Your right, it rocks. And you will get Panther in yours, which really really rocks!

If your looking for another cool iName, how about "iAm" and you can rename your windows laptop to "iThink".

Re: Alternate names...

Typically, when naming a computer, I prefer to use a real-ish name. So I'm still thinking about it.

And you, sir, have way too much time on your hands. Again! :)

iRene
iLene
iSaac (you could use a Love Boat screensaver)
iTzhak (ok, you'd have to alter the pronunciation)
iAgo (but then your computer would make you kill your spouse)
iOn (such a positive influence...)
iVy (but then it would probably be too clingy)
iOlanthe (for the G&S lover in your household)

Just a few thoughts.

Could be that. Or maybe you don't like buying your software twice.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: December 3rd, 2003 10:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Nah. I don't care about the software. My computer is three years old and I have very little on it software-wise that I'd want to keep. Which is to say, none other than the OS. But I would definitely want to upgrade the OS anyway.
