I loved my MAC.
Yes, past tense.
No, not the makeup, my Macintosh computer. My beloved Apple IMAC G5.
When we purchased it a few years ago, I swore I would never go back to a Windows PC.
Well, never say never.
A few weeks ago, my MAC took a dive! After Google'ing the issue and talking to an Apple representative, we figured out it was doing something called "Kernal Panic." Sounds pretty serious, huh?
My husband took it into the Apple store so they can determine if it was a hardware or a software issue. I was praying it was the latter.
The Apple Genius said the problem was the logic board. The "mother board", if you will. The heart of the computer!
What does that mean?
It means $600 to fix it!
Um...thanks, but NO THANKS!
You can buy a brand new one for just over $1,300.
This is when I became THANKFUL for the kids computers. The ones we use for school (and for blogging and Facebook).
I realize now, that just as long as I can access those sites, nothing else matters.
This is where the good news comes in.
My sister in-law had a laptop that was just sitting around her house.
So, what did she do?
She offered it to me, and of course, I said, "YES!"
Excited and overjoyed are an understatement!
I've never had a laptop before and I'm lovin' it!
