Computer Transition--Once Again Bud Saves The Day

As you know, I have been without my beloved Mac for the past two weeks.  Well, I finally got the call from the repair man who said it can be repaired, but the cost of the part and paying him labor isn't worth fixing it.

The good thing:  I'm going to get a new Mac.  The bad thing:  the new Mac system, Lion comes out sometime this summer.  It makes no sense to buy a Mac now, with Snow Leopard, when I can buy a new one in a few months with the latest software.  Bud and I decided to wait until Lion comes out.  

Bud:  Once again, my sweetie has rescued me.  Not with a white horse, but with a white Mac.  He brought over one of the Macs he has at home (which is just like mine, only a bigger screen) for me to use until I buy my Mac this summer.  So I don't have my old Mac to use, and I can't get to my music and photos, but I can still function.  Phew.  I didn't realize how much I use my computer until I didn't have it.

So, I'm excited to get my new Mac.  I had planned on replacing my Mac this year anyway, but I am sad that my old Mac is on the fritz.  It has been a faithful computer with no problems for 7 years, so I can't really complain.  For now, I will continue to use Bud's computer, so I can blog and do all the stuff necessary for survival in today's world!

Coming this summer to me!


  1. What is the advantage of a Mac over a PC? What type of word program does it have?

  2. In my opinion, Macs are made better, last longer, and have less problems. Yes, they cost more, but to me the price is worth it. I'm not a computer person, but I have always had a Mac and will never have a PC. I know there are lots of programs now where you can have a Mac and still have windows and other PC programs on it.

  3. I love my MacBook too, and wouldn't go back to a PC. Macs are more reliable, don't get viruses, and have a lot of neat software that pc don't have. My mac came with a parallel software disk that lets me use Windows 7 if I choose to. I haven't done it yet, because I think the OS is just fine, and I like Safari much better than Explorer. Hope you get your mac as soon as possible :)

  4. Thanks Alex! I think Bud would leave me if I got a PC. He is a Mac man all the way :)

  5. I've never had a Mac, but I know so many people who swear by them that I've seriously thought about getting one the next time I need an upgrade or a new computer. Are they at all difficult to get used to if you've always used a PC?

  6. As far as I know, they are very easy to use--very intuitive. If you have an Ipod, you know what I mean. They are user friendly and have lots of cool stuff!

  7. Oooh! That's going to be an awesome computer! Bud is such a good guy!!!
