A New Mac in the Family

Life changed for us fourteen years ago today. May 30, 1994-- that's the day hubster and I bought our first computer.

(Yes, I saved the receipt and booklet because I'm a slob I'm sentimental.)

The Mac Quadra 660AV was considered state-of-the-art in 1994.

Compare that to my brand-new baby.

This is like comparing slow knitting me to Miriam Tegels or comparing a teeny, tiny shoebox of a Manhattan yarn store such as Purl SoHo to a ginormous, sprawling store such as 21,000 sq.ft WEBS

I've fallen in love with (just about) every computer we've had since 1994. Since they were the first-born, there's a special place in my heart for the Quadra 660AV and my first laptop. But, this new MacBook Pro--OH MY! There's just so much to fall in love with.

The backlit keyboard-what a genius idea for middle-aged insomniacs. And klutzy me really appreciates the MagSafe power connector. Plus it's pretty, speedy and smart--what's not to love?

You are right. What's not to love! Jobs (and co.) is a genius and they know how to do everything just right and how to make using a pleasure.

Way cool! Enjoy your new addition!

I'm saving for a new laptop and I think it might be an iBook. I don't think quite as nice as this but I am kind of excited to try something different. We'll see.

Isn't it great?!? We got ours about a month ago and I'll never go back to a Windows/Microsoft based PC. :-)

The cake and pies look delish!

Oh I'm jealous! I'm sitting here on the couch reading blogs with my MacBook. Nice, but it ain't a Pro. Enjoy!

Better late than never, right? I'm on board the Apple train! And yes, everything you pointed out is so great. I didn't even know about the backlit keyboard when I bought it. Imagine my delight and surprise!
