I ordered a new computer! I am very, very excited. I hope it turns up before my conference next week. It would be fun to give it a trial run on the road. I also ordered 2 gigs of RAM that I’m going to install myself (because it was a lot cheaper than buying it from Apple). I chose the white 13″ Macbook with the 2.0 GH core duo processor. I like the looks of the black one better, but it was more money for not really much more computer, especially one I up my RAM.
I’m looking forward to it. Latoya served me well, and she also taught me the important lesson of backing up my data (actually not a problem because I did always back up my most important stuff offsite, and Denny was able to retrieve pretty much everything else), but it’s time to move on.
It has a built-in iSight camera, so you may have to deal with lots of pictures of me making weird faces until I get over the novelty of that. And I don’t expect that day to come any time soon.
