ok so it's been a really long time since I blogged. was out of town with friends & I was M.I.A to the cyber world so.... let's catch up.
I have a shitty computer. My left click button doesn't work, so I have to use touchpad/ trackpad above it & tap to do everything including photoshop. My computer used to be super slow, so I bought new memory ($100). The battery sucks, but been too lazy/ cheap to spend another $100 on a better battery. It's been a year plus battle with my computer.. and now finally the back cable isn't working. I have to twist the back cable in order to get power. Sadly to fix all the problems, they will have to open the computer, bla bla touch the motherboard.... blah blah costs almost the price of a new computer.
SO...basically I have to buy a new computer.
Should I buy another PC that will stop working in 2-3 years as usual, or Should I try this annoying apple computer that people rave about and claim it doesn't crash.
what got me was resale value. A greatly cared for and used PC, 2 years later can sell for $10 and a greatly cared for and used MAC can sell for $800+. No need to say more.
So after searching I deciced the 17inch Macbook Pro, with anti glare, 8gig, quad core i7 woul d be perfect for me. Originally worth $2,500, and with my customizations would be $3,000. Then Reality hit & I respected myself and got the cheapest Macbook Pro available which is still waaaay too expensive in comparison with Windows (and that still hurt).
So I got a 13inch Macbook Pro, Dual Core, and added more GB (cost $1235.52 ).
PS:: if you buy one, make sure you do the student discount for your school. I got a $100 off from my school
YUP it's freaking glossy!!! so reflective. don't you hate seeing your reflection when your trying to work or watch a movie! 13 inch's don't have antiglare!!! :(
|FREAKING GLARE.... TEAR DROPS!!! can u see my reflection!!|
1st thing I did when enable right click etc!!!!
|3 hrs I can't get back ( since i exchanged this computer for the core i5)|
Then guess what!! 2 weeks later I found out that Apple decided to release a new MacBook Pro 13inch i5 which is faster and better than my dual core. FOR the same price I paid!!!!!
so if this happened to you, you have 30 to trade it in for the newer model. (when I exchanged it for the newer model they gave me back $48 ---- well honestly i was 34 days late, but they gave me "a one time courtesy")
(I'm still using my messed up PC until I move everything to my mac---- :( I really love windows :( and will miss it!! well not really, I'll prob add Windows 7 OS to my MAC)
