R.I.P. My iMac Posted on September 3, 2008 by Spencer Just 4 years old and my poor mac is as dead as a doornail. Actually not fully dead, but $900 to fix. Ugh. Was planning to buy something but not now. Apple has it in for me this week.
It’s a sad, sad day.
And today I came home with a 24-inch iMac.
I have just two words for you now – Second Life. (No more excuses, right? You’ll look good in a virtual ascot, don’t worry.)
Our 18-month-old Dell laptop’s hard-drive self-destructed a couple weeks ago — the morning after we used it to order a new HP desktop (some sort of attempted suicide over the prospect of being replaced?) The laptop is functioning again with a new drive, but the desktop we ordered – all pretty and theoretically top o’ the line – worked for about 36 hours before blue-screening on us rather fatally.
No promises on Second Life. I did want to keep my old iMac, and get a macbook pro – but I guess not.
geeze – something else seems wrong.
