    Computers Suck, then they DIE
    I've been basically computer-less from Monday morning until the past few minutes.

    My four-year-old iMAC Intel Duo Core I died a slow, agonizing death, and after spending almost 30 hours trying to do an erase and install, and two long sessions at the Apple Store Genius Bar while hoping the Geniuses were, and could work some magic, I pulled the plug on a new iMAC.

    Still setting things up, but what a machine!
    What power, What speed, What a monitor! The wireless mini-keyboard is going to take some time to get used to, though.

    The good news is that I had EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF DATA on my old computer BACKED UP and I lost nothing!

    But how do I make up for a whole week of lost work time? Plus, a week from Monday, MrsHound and I are gong to Seattle to spend a week with our daughter and son-in-law - a second week away from w - o - r - k.

    BUT - could have lost everything on my old computer, so, ....... back to work,

    If you tell me you got the 27" model, I'm going to kill myself out of jealousy.

    Okay, maybe not, but I'll be really jealous

    I REALLY thought about it, but it was just tooooo big for my desk.

    (or should I have bought a new desk to fit it?)

    THEN I'd have to hire a contractor to enlarge my den/office so the desk would fit.

    No, I know, I was just giving you a hard time
    I was in the Apple store just this afternoon, drooling over the 27 again and getting some hands-on time with the *ahem* highly overrated iPad.

    I know.

    Believe me, I spent a lot of time agonizing about it. I spent about 6 hours at the Apple store this week, and didn't even look at an iPad - when I wasn't watching the demise of my old computer, I was trying the new ones, looking at the specs, and asking about the differences in the four models.

    When you are as old as you and I are --- it is a medical necessity to get a 27+++" screen - our eyes will thank us - cheaper than getting new glasses

    Think of the energy savings and increase in productivity.... (that's always my excuse for a new computer and I'm sticking to it!)

    You can get twice as much done in half the time so you can take those vacations
