A Temperamental Mac (and Where Else I’ve Been)

Fellow bloggers, I’m back and ready for action. You see, around the time I posted last (in APRIL!) my computer started acting really funky. If you know anything about me, you know I’ve been putting up with my temperamental MacBook’s antics for, oh, about 4 years now. Yeah. I know.

The short story is that I took it to Apple, they told me it was “vintage” and wouldn’t even diagnose it. I think the genius had a hard time even looking at my poor old computer. But from what I’d told him, he said it seemed like it was the logic board and that there was really nothing to do but get a new one for upwards of 600 bucks. HI, might as well get a new computer for that much! And then I had it appraised on one of those “turn in your old electronics” sites and found out my computer was worth exactly $29.60. TWENTY NINE DOLLARS AND SIXTY CENTS. The whole thing.

And all of that basically led to me finally breaking down and buying a new MacBook Pro. It’s a beauty, peeps. I really can’t believe I’ve been functioning on that old piece of junk for FOUR YEARS! I may as well have had an ACER or something, the difference is that significant.

So now that I’m back up and functioning like a normal internet addict again, (SC says I’ve been such a sad puppy these past few months) I’ve got TONS of content coming up. This is mostly due to the fact that I went to Vegas last month for Bloggers in Sin City and wasn’t even able to post one freaking picture on Facebook afterwards, let alone write a single post. And in previous years, I’ve written a 3-post and 5-post series, respectively. I’m working on getting caught up. Be a little patient and I promise it’ll be worth it.

You guys, this computer is so soft. I just want to pet it all damn day.

    My mac is 3 years old. I want a new one just for the sake of having a new one, but this one is still running relatively well aside from the battery not holding a charge as long as I would like.

    Did you get a Mac with a new retina display?

    • I think that batteries always run out before the computer is ready to quit.
      I did not get the new retina display. It was just too expensive for me to rationalize having it purely to have it. I don’t do anything that I really NEED a retina display for. Plus, this screen is so many million times better than my ’06 MacBook that I’m already thrilled about the display!

  3. hurrah for a new computer, they always are the most fun to play with. (that almost sounds dirty, ha).

  4. Welcome back, lady! Congrats on the new computer and please begin to share all of the things immediately. xoxo

  5. It’s good to have you back, lady!
