Ha! What did you think I was going to say? 🙂
That’s right. We bought a new computer. A big, pretty, new computer. Before you can even begin to wonder about how we could be such gluttonous consumers, I’m going to say just one thing: we didn’t buy a car.
No we don’t have the cash to buy a car for China like we thought we did but we do have enough to finally invest in a new computer to replace my deteriorating laptop and the macbook commandeered by mama Dumm
You might be asking, “why buy a desktop, where do you live? 1994?”
And I would answer, only at night-when we sleep in Chris’ ratty (but oh-so-comfy) college t-shirts.
Anyways, I’m convinced desktops are going to become the way of the future. Especially coming off of 3 weeks building spreadsheets on a 12inch screen. I don’t know about you but after a day emailing on my phone or trying to do spreadsheets on a bitty screen, all I want is to sit in front of a giant screen at a proper desk with a cuppa.
1. Internet + Big Pretty Screen = TV that doubles as a Computer
2. Big Pretty Computer + Internet = Household Network Server
3. Big Pretty Screen = Dani doesn’t go blind trying to edit photos or build spreadsheets on her tiny (and now broken) laptop
4. Big pretty computer + Dani working from home = A good reason to finally get a real desk
In summation: we love our new computer.
Coming soon: a review of Aperture, the free trial version!
