Does anyone remember reading this post about a year ago? Well, it was written in September, and from that time until now, I've been diligently saving my money, as planned, so I could make my big purchase.
Well, after 11 months of saving and a generous contribution from Jonathan's gas-reimbursement money from work, Friday was a big night...
We went to dinner at Swanky's (my new fave) and then headed over to the Apple store! There was about a 30 minute wait (which made us so thankful we went Friday night instead of during the day over the weekend, where the line would be that long [or longer] but would be in the 115 degree heat index). Once we got inside, I bought my new computer!!
I decided to go with the new 13" MacBook Air - and I love it! Jonathan also has a MacBook Air (but his is 11" and the first generation one), so I sort of knew what I was getting myself into. But basically - it's awesome! The Flash memory makes everything move so quick, and in addition to normal computer functions, I can download apps from the apple store. Also, it came with the new Mac operation system, Lion. The mouse/trackpad is its own little computer (it seems) and has all these crazy swipes that do different things - I'm still trying to get the hang of it.
This is the first new computer I've had in 10 years, and I couldn't be happier! Here's to writing my novel and writing awesome blog posts and playing chess and video chatting and everything else awesome I'll be doing!
(Anyone have any app recommendations for a computer? I have an iPhone, so I know all the apps I use on that, but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for a bigger machine.)
