I am blogging to you from a hefty Dell Inspiron. It has served me adequately, but for a long time I’ve had my eye on a Mac book. It’s partially an image craving, I know–the Macs are sexy and all that. Everyone I work with is on a Mac and constantly running their cool artistic applications in front of me and making movies in about five minutes.
The main strike against my Inspiron is the size. Bringing it to work is like bringing my washing machine. Portability is big for me, because new locations seem to stimulate creative thoughts.
So for a while now I’ve known the Inspiron isn’t a long-term relationship. But I’m not rich, and I’m not wasteful, so I’m not going to chuck the functional computer I have and buy a new one impulsively. Letting my practical husband rub off on me, I was saving for a Mac book, but there was a snafu with our taxes last month and some of the Mac book money had to go to the US Government… suffice it to say the Mac book is not in my immediate future.
So why, then, is Mac running this ad? And do they have it so magically rigged that everyone hears their own name at the end?
