Okay, I know it is totally inappropriate to covet on a Sunday, but I want an iMac. Badly. Don’t get me wrong: I love my MacBook. It has been a sturdy, reliable friend since I flipped a quad over onto my 5-weeks pregnant body
But let’s face it: I am fickle, shallow and materialistic have a short attention span and like sparkly, shiny new things Two and a half years is a record length of time for me to be attached to one computer. And goodness knows, we have shared some love. I have converted more people to Mac-lovers in this short time than I can count. Steve Jobs should be paying me a referral fee! I live, thrive and grow in the Apple Tree. I love my Mac, my iPod, my iPhone, my everything-Apple.
I have been so happy with my little 13″ MacBook. It has done me well and made me proud. It runs like a charm, only getting bogged down when I have waaaaaay too many pictures and neglect to transfer them to my external drive. You see, my laptop only has 60MB of storage. And while that was a lot in the dark ages 2007, it’s not a lot in 2010.
I blame Sherrie, mostly. I’ve been harping on her to replace her relic of an old computer for a while now, and I think they have finally cracked We were looking at Macs this week, comparing notebooks to desktops and weighing the pros and cons of each. My heart was all a-flutter, and I may have been drooling just a little. And when we got down to the price, my heart dropped:
$1599.00 for a 21.5″ iMac with 1TB hard-drive. Ooooh my goodness, oh my goodness!!
No, Meaghan. No. Your laptop is perfectly good. It has years of life left in it, and you are technically still paying off your house renovations. Plus, the bugz’ birthday is just around the corner, and you are already spending your pocket money on that (super sweet, to be announced later) gift.

But I waaaant it!!
But you don’t need it.
But Leith’s laptop is a !#*& useless piece of junk, and he could use MY old laptop (which still has “a lot of life left in it”, and I could use a new desktop, since I really don’t take my laptop ANYWHERE anyway.
No, Meaghan. Just blog about it, get it out of your system and go sweep the kitchen floor. Goodness knows you need to do that before you get any kind of treat.
Oh fine. Whatever. I’ll just go make do with what I have.
