I haven’t thought of a name for him yet. In fact, I’ve just now decided on gender. Anything this big and flashy has to be male.
I have a new iMac. Brand new. As in they just were announced on Tuesday.
I’m still in the “pinch me, I’m dreaming” stage, actually.
When my old iMac suffered from what they called ‘Bulging Capacitors’ my first thought was that it sounded like something I would get in my back or my knees. We hashed over whether to pay the hefty repair bill or to just buy new. We settled on buying a refurbished laptop, priced those over at MacAuthority and then started the business of saving up.
We knew we’d have enough by this weekend, (although I was halfway expecting the car to break down or a stone to break loose in my kidney–something that would eat into the bottom line) and I was preparing my desk area for the new arrival.
Then I got an email from Apple announcing that the Newest iMac was Here. And that it was a lot cheaper. So much cheaper that the new base model cost the exact same as the refurbished laptop we’d had our eye on.
Here is where I squee.
So one minor hiccup later (the first one didn’t have an Airport card in it…ooops) we’re here and raring to go. I still can’t believe how sparkly-shiny it is. I’m so in love.
