Covetous Thoughts

The new MacBook Pro is pretty tempting. My PowerBook G4 is almost five years old at this point. I'm less desperate to upgrade since I got the battery replaced and the sudden shutdown problem went away, although the wifi stopped working last night and I haven't figured out what's going on there yet. (I would have assumed it was a router problem but monstersocks' iBook continued to work.) My plan to sell a few shares of Apple stock to buy some new hardware also hit a bit of a snag when their share price dropped by about 50% in the past few months. It was a questionable plan to begin with anyway as I sold shares of Apple to buy my iMac and then they went up kind of a lot, making my iMac seem far more expensive than it should have been.

On a completely different note, Baconnaise.
