PC or Mac: Decision time

August 30, 2010

A couple of people have wondered about the outcome of my computer-purchase deliberations.  I am happy to say that this past weekend I placed an order for one of these sweethearts:

I haven’t got it yet, but it should arrive in a week or so.  What finally pushed me toward Apple was the fact that we got the “educational discount” on account of my wife’s being a student.  It’s only a small discount, but we also got several hundred dollars worth of free stuff that I can turn around and sell.  (Anybody want an iPod Touch or a printer?) That brought the price down far enough to make it feasible.   I am still a little worried that I spent too much, but, at the end of the day, financial problems are not insurmountable.  There are always options.

My thanks to everyone who offered advice as I was trying to make up my mind.  I appreciate it.
