I love computers. Everyone who knows me knows how much I love computers. Today my sweetie and I fulfilled a want I have had for a very long time. We went and bought me a Mac Pro with a 27-inch cinema display. Did I need this computer, probably not? But boy did I want it!!! Every once in a while I would go to the Apple website and build my dream computer. I always thought I would buy it from the website but we found out it could all be done at a local Apple store. What made it even sweeter was that I could get it upgraded today and pick it up today!
After I was done work tasks for the day, Deb and I went to the Apple store in Richmond. I have never been to an official Apple store. It seemed like this store was like a destination where people go to hang out. It was packed!
When we got there someone helped me right away. I wanted the Quad-core Mac Pro with 12gbs of RAM and 2(two) 2-TB drives. I got all of that plus the original 1TB drive that came with it. Right now, I am using migration assistant to transfer all the data from iMac to the Mac Pro. It is going to take a couple of hours to transfer all the data. This is one thing I absolutely adore about Macs – getting a new one is painless. You transfer your data and the new computer is ready to use. It is unnecessary to reinstall all of your software. It is a much better system than Windows.
I have a lot of work to get done over the next 2 days and I am actually looking forward to doing it on my new, skookum computer!!! Deb, thank you for knowing what I want and helping me get it. I love you.
