On Saturday I picked up a new computer.
Not much to say about it really! It’s a huge step up from my previous iMac.
Previous iMac Life Story
Bought in October 2006. For 2 years prior to that I was using a PowerBook G4 – so the only access I had to Windows was borrowing my dads laptop (which is what I made New Sam on). I needed something of my own to make Tormishire with and I was in my last year of uni so… Bam! Low end 17” iMac. The base model. But ah tell ya wart Apple are good at putting stuff together. Because 4.5 years later and the only thing to break is the DVD drive (that 2004 Powerbook has had no problems to this day!).
But it’s old. Super old.
Splurged a little bit on the new machine. It’s the (stock) top end iMac. The absolute best one you can get from a retail Apple Store (build-to-order, which takes weeks to arrive).
3.1ghz Sandy Bridge i5
Radeon 6970 1gb
27” LED 2560×1440
FUNNY BIT: I asked the sales chap if we could swap out the Mighty Mouse for the Trackpad (which you can do online). But he just chucked in a Trackpad for free. Which was awfully nice.
Thing’s brilliant. Faultless.
