I am currently using an Apple computer. A Mac PowerPC G4. A whopping 40GB hard drive, with 640MB of memory, 533MHz processor.
I know, there are people out there with older computers. Slower computers. People with dial-up connections. I have cable internet. I should be happy, my computer is around... oh... 8 years old this December.... and it's still running. I've packed the hard drive so full, there is less than 5 GB free space. Shoot, I love my super high quality old Mac.
Today, however, I went upstairs to use my 20 year old son's one year old PC running Vista (ack, ptooey) while he was at class, so I could watch some Netflix online. My computer can't do that. And while I was there, I dropped some entrecards.
OH MY GOSH!!! Pages loaded so fast I that I had time to READ some of the blogs I visited instead of waiting eons for them to load, and ages for the entrecard widget to say "thanks". I felt like a time traveler who came from the old west on a mule watching a jet plane flying by. I dropped 129 cards!!
On Netflix, I watched some old Law and Order: Criminal Intent and it was like watching it on DVD (almost) with no stuttering, no pixelation...
I should never have gone up there. I should never have seen what I was missing. Now I know. I must have a new computer. I'm here on my old, faithful mac, lusting after a PC. Okay, I'm lusting after a new Mac, but I find myself thinking I could "make do" with a new PC. What's wrong with me???
