Hello,

I wanted to wait to make this post but my excitement is growing a lot since placing my order yesterday.

Back story.

In 1994/1995 I saw an informercial that blew me away so much that I watched it Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 12:00 AM - 4:00 AM called “The martinettis bring home a computer”. That was the first time I saw a Mac & fell in love with it but never bought one because of price and everyone I knew was using windows. Through the years I use to like to watch tv shows like call for help, screen savers... for the windows stuff but also to see the Mac tips.

When I got my first iPhone 4s I decide to move to macs completely. Right after I got iPhone 5, 5s, 6/+, 7 and now 8. The first Apple TV I bought used it for awhile then gave it to my sister when my tv broke then bought a new one after I got a new tv. I had a gen 3 ipad that I used for awhile sold it and recently I got me myself an iPad gen 6 but sold it to finally get my very first Mac computer that I wanted for sooo long.

I bought a 12” MacBook that I know I’m going to love it as much as I love my iPhone 8 or even more. :)

It’s a slippery slope. One day you buy an iPod, role in a few years and you realise you own (or have) just about every product they sell!

Off to sell my kidneys and lungs online so I can get a new MacPro!

It drops off the deep end when you get your first PowerMac, after having been using Intel Macs.

I know people who can open up museums while stocking a back room with spare parts.

I myself own 3 PowerMac G5s, a PowerMac G3, an iMac G3, an iMac G5, a 12" PowerBook G4, a 14" iBook G4, two 15" PowerBook G4s, a 17" PowerBook G4 and a 2006 17" MBP (which I count because it's Snow Leopard max).

Hello fellow sheep. Glad to have you fully on board, my story is similar - started with an iPhone 4 in 2011 then every one up until I got my iMac in 2017 then my provider offers Apple TV for their home internet package.

Hi. My name is xxx and I’ve been concealing and justifying Mac purchases for x years now. The first step is admitting you have a problem. The 2nd step is finding 0 interest financing. Good luck and best wishes with your new toy.
