It Must Be a Sign... a Message from God
Posted by Sam at 12:00 AM | tags: apple
Today, on my 28th birthday, Apple released the widely anticipated MacBook (sans the "Pro" suffix). Clearly, this is a birthday gift to me. "Happy birthday, Sam. Here's something to lust over." And lust I will... cuz this 'book is da bomb! (Look... I'm old now. I'm not even going to pretend like I'm still (as if I ever was) hip, cool, or in-the-know. My elevated age entitles me to say things like, "da bomb." It's my right as an adult. Roll your eyes if you must, but know that one day adulthood will come knocking at your door too. And if you choose not to answer (like I did), adulthood will bust though the wall like the Kool-Aid man. Although instead of saying "Oh yeah!" and relieving thirst and boredom with brightly-colored sugar-water, he'll be brandishing a briefcase and a box of Fiber Flakes and be shouting something bland like "Buy low, sell high!" while day-old office coffee spills from his voluminous yellowed pitcher body. Yep, the UnKool-Aid man will come for you... in the night. And you'll never be kool again.)
So anyway, the new MacBook (remember? That's the topic of this post... geez, I'm so distractible these days. It's an irrefutable sign of my age, I suppose) comes in a very slick and very evil black shell. And if that's not incentive enough to purchase one, then I just don't know what is. Anyway, I won't bore you with all the specs... just the new and notable ones, like: This MacBook has a 13" widescreen with a glossy display. The base model clocks in at 1.8 GHz with an Intel Core Duo processor. There's an iSight camera built in, iLife '06 is included, and it comes with that cute little remote thingy for Front Row. Additionally, you got the MagSafe power feature and this 'Book supports an extended desktop (not just display mirroring) when you connect up an external display. All this for just $1100 ($1050 if you're a student).
That's hot! Me want.

I'm 41... but adulthood has yet to come knocking on my door, at least that's what people tell me.
