On Friday I finally got a laptop for school! I waited all year for Apple to catch up with the quad-core technology and then when they started their student promotion (free iPod Touch) I knew the time had finally come. As much as I hate consumerism (and I must admit, I wasn’t completely happy with the idea of getting a new product) I really love Apple and what they have done for technology. As i’m getting older my fangirl rose-coloured glasses have come off but Macs are still my machine of choice.
I went to the Apple store in Pacific Centre to ask some questions and get some information. I didn’t intend to make a purchase there but then I realized that ordering online would just mean more waiting and extra, unnecessary shipping fuel/packaging. The fact that it was iPad release day had also slipped my mind. My conversation with the “bouncer” went something like “Dude, I don’t want an iPad, I just want to buy a computer…” haha. We had to wait in line (only for a few minutes) and then this chick with cool hair helped me.
15″ Macbook Pro (Which I have named “Finn Hudson”)
- 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 processor
- Precision aluminum unibody enclosure
- 4GB RAM (may upgrade this to 8GB)
- 5.4-inch (diagonal) matte widescreen display
- Apple Care Protection Plan
32GB iPod Touch (which I have named “Rachel Berry”)
(My last gen of electronics was named after Wicked characters so I figured I should continue the musical tradition hehe)
