I can't honestly say I'm complaining too much - my computer was a desktop, five-ish years old, and a friend built it for me and only charged me $400 for it. It's been a good computer for all that time.
The plan was, when my comp died, to upgrade W to a MacBook Pro and I'd inherit his current MacBook. And before I hear complaints about how unfair that is, I will remind my readers that he's the student/future doctoral student/ almost TA. I use the computer to find photos like this:
It's very fair, and it was my suggestion. So there's that.
So we may have to go shopping this weekend. Can't say I'm looking forward to spending two grand right now, especially when we've already paid for our summer vacation next month, but what are you going to do?
