Well, CompUSA is offering 12months same as cash and I couldn't pass it up... walked out of there this morning with my 17" Powerbook. It was the only one they had in stock, and the first one any of the employees had seen in person. Where do I buy a carrying case for this massive thing? Any suggestions? First REAL (non-Dell) laptop I've ever owned... I'm so excited. There was so much envy walking out of CompUSA and folks looking at me... hehe. In other news, the new job is going great.. though I still have yet to figure out a good ISP solution. I've relocated to Dayton for good.. I want to go high speed again but since I'm only home like 1week a month, I really hate to pay $50 a month. On the other hand, a nation wide dial-up service wouldnt be bad.. but if I'm going to pay $25 a monthy for a home phone line and $15 for dial up.. I might as well just fork down $50 a month and stick with my cell phone. Earthlink is running a 6months half price deal, so I might go with that... I'll be in South Dakota next week most likely.. talk to you guys after that, let you know if I'm having any problems.
