OHHH MAC...I'M BACK!

Yes, I'm talking about the Apple iMac!!!

Now, don't get me wrong, I appreciate having the kids computers and the laptop that my sister in-law gave me. Those are a blessing, indeed!

It's just once you own a MAC, it's hard to "go back."

So...what is one to do?

Say hello to my new buddy. With a 21.5 inch display screen, it's massive, and I love it! I love the new color of it too. They used to be white, but now they are silver and black, and the entire monitor is a flat screen. If you look at my blog in the picture, you can see how much of the background is visible on each side. This gives you an idea of how wide the screen is.

My husband had to alter my desk so that the monitor could fit in between these two stands.

I'm in love.

I missed seeing those colorful icons on the toolbar! Beautiful!

I want to give a special shout out to my husband. He did a side job in exchange for this brand new computer and an external hard drive. He knows we didn't really "need" this, but he did it for me. Thank you honey!

Aw, that was really sweet of your hubby. I haven't crossed over yet to the Mac... don't know if I ever will. Same reason why I hang on to my old cell phone instead of getting a much newer model. :)

What a great husband. I want a Mac so bad... I have heard everyone say they wouldn't trade it for the world.

Oh and my favorite TV commercials are the Mac & PC guy's for the Mac commercials. Marketing at it's best.

Lauren said...

Oh I am jealous!! I would kill for a Mac. My last job had Mac's, and I loved them... but we can never seem to afford one when it's time for a new computer. *sigh*
