Would you like to buy her?
This is our very cute Silkchon (yes, the picture on that site is of our dog), named Zoey. And the reason why I am selling her is because I need to so I can buy a new computer. Now before you think I am cruel let me tell you why.
On Thursday my wife told me that our “cute” little Zoey had gotten a “little” wound up and ended getting her leg caught in the power cord of my 5 year old 800 MHz G4 iBook and knocked it down. When I got home I tried to boot it up and while I could hear the hard drive working there was nothing showing up on the monitor. I then tried to connect an external monitor and still nothing showed up. I am pretty sure that the video card is shot along with the monitor on the laptop.
Now you can see why I need to sell her (I really am not planning on selling her), so that I can get some money to buy a new laptop. I was in need of a new laptop since mine was getting up there in years, but I wasn’t planning on getting a new one since the iBook was still working fine. So over the weekend we ended up ordering a refurbished MacBook from the Apple Store. Let me tell you that it is worth checking the refurbished section of the Apple Store for Apple products, because you can save money and get the same great Apple products along with their warranty.
So later this week I will go from a 800 MHz G4 iBook with a ComboDrive (CD burner/DVD reader), 768 MB of RAM, and a 60 GB hard drive to a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook with a SuperDrive (CD & DVD Burner), 2 GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard drive. It will be nice to have the extra power to do some things faster that took a bit of time on my old laptop, but I really didn’t want to have to spend the extra money. But I still love my cute dog, I think?
