#61 Buy a MacBook
I am no longer a PC, because Windows 7 was not my idea.
Despite being socially connected and Internet savvy, the actually workings of a computer are lost on me, and my cluelessness (read ignorance) about how computers work has led to much frustration over the years.
After some hardships encountered with my previous laptop (mostly revolving around transferring files from my Mac at school to my Dell at home), I decided to make the switch to Apple.
And even though I still have lots to learn about using a Mac, I know my new 13-inch MacBook Pro and I will become great friends.
I’ve also ordered CS5 through an Apple retailer, so hopefully sometime within the next two weeks I will be hooked up with the latest versions of Photoshop, In Design, Illustrator and Flash Catalyst.
Now, while I find Macs to be extremely convenient and user-friendly, they are certainly not the cheapest of machines, which would have made this an expensive goal to complete.
However, I am very fortunate to have generous and loving grandparents who treated my sister and I each to a MacBook Pro.
Needless to say, yesterday was a great day.
9 down, 92 to go.
