    By "changed my brain" I mean that I beat nicotine withdrawl and subsequently saved the $50.00 a week I was spending on cigarettes and put it in a box instead, all for the sole purpose of getting a macbook (and being healthier of course).

    done and did, smoke free and a new macbook owner, i'm typing this on it and i love it.

    I had the specs for the quit in my sig before so maybe you caught it, I also sold some gear on craigslist to pay for the extra ram and tax...
    Thanks to scarlet fever, rtdunham, kerpow and savanahrose for their positive PM's.
    damn this thing is dope.....:D :apple:

    $50 a day? Sounds like your lungs might match your new MacBook.
    I know how much ciggies are in BC but how is that even possible?

    woops, what i meant to say was $50.00 a week....ya...if it was that much a day I'd be dead...:eek:

    thanks for the kind posts :)

    this thing is so nice, silent, not hot, loving the glossy, installing bootcamp was soo easy, I've been playing Elder Scrolls and NBA live all day, I got an iSkin for the keyboard which i really like, i picked up a Booq Vyper (luv it) and i'm so glad i went for the black...

    better than ever...riding my bike to work now too
    Smoking sucked, i hated how it told me what to do and where to go....anyhoo, no mas....after 14 yrs...

    w00t ! ;)

    As someone who's about to jump on the non-smoking wagon - congrats. I can't promise myself an MB (I have one), but saving up towards an MP.... that's something else. I just hope I can do as well as you have.
