A few years ago I made the switch. You know that switch from crap computers to awesome expensive computers. Making the switch is like trading in your Yugo for a new BMW. The price difference is the about the same too. In 2004 I bought a 13″ Mac Powerbook G4 (I sold it to my brother two years later…it is still work perfectly to this day!). After I bought my new laptop I went over to visit my friend Ben and his wife Melanie. While we were sitting on the couch watching TV I took out my laptop to check email/do homework/ look something up online to prove I knew what I was talking about. As I took out my laptop and began to use it, Melanie came back in the room. She looked at me and said, “Wow Scott. Your…THING…is so small!” I lifted up my head to see her pointing to my lap (where my aptly named laptop was resting). Ben just started to laugh. Mel turned bright red and walked out of the room. I dropped my eyes back to the screen to resume my work. I didn’t argue with her…I really hope she was talking about my new computer.
