My sweet, sweet hubby bought me a laptop for my big decade-changing birthday.  Even though I have one for work, I don't like doing my personal fun-stuff on there and we needed a "home" computer for our photos, music, etc.  So when I saw my shiny, purple Toshiba, I was pretty pumped.  When we turned on our new shiny, purple Toshiba however, and ran more than one program, we waited... and waited... and waited some more.  It was a bit slow, so we decided to take it back and get an upgraded version.

The more we looked, the higher the price rose.  We compared, asked advice, and went back and forth between a couple of machines.  After a long debate with myself in my head, I said "yes" to this:

Yup, I am the proud new owner of a Mac... I have officially crossed over to the geek side and I couldn't be more excited.  Everyone I know who has one loves it and all of the store clerks (not in an Apple store) raved about them.  I'm still trying to figure it all, decide whether storing photos in iPhoto is worth it, and watching tutorials on iWeb and all of that fun stuff.  So I have to throw out the question: to those of you who have a Mac, what are your favorite features?

I think my husband is still scratching his head about how I managed to double the price of my original birthday present.  It sounds like thirty has made me pretty darn clever!

What's the best gift you've ever received?


  1. I got my MacBook Pro last August and am obsessed with it! John Michael was patient enough to move all our photos (and log them, 'face' them, etc.) in iPhoto, but I admit that I still have sooo much to learn. I love that their website has tutorials for PC to Mac Users though. Awesome!

    P.S. I have not forgotten about your bday card. Ugh. I bought it WAY EARLY and they are in my briefcase. I am about to go into hiding, too, since I am embarrassed for not having sent them yet... :(

  2. You? Embarrassed? You're not even a month late yet... don't get embarrassed until it's October and your birthday is rolling around again! :) And speaking of things to send, I found the missing piece of yours the other day and need to get that in the mail, too!
