My PC Knows Im Getting a Mac. (It's acting up.) It all started back in late July. I was bored playing around with my new iPhone 3G and was just so excited that it just worked. It did what I wanted, without any troubleshooting. My iPhone was my 2nd apple product (a 30GB iPod video being my first) and I was interested in exploring other products that they offer. Just to try something new. So I went to their website and looked around. I watched all the Get a Mac advertisements, iLife and iWork tours and was really impressed on the simplicity of the interfacing and design. Later that day, I got the blue screen [of death] informing me there was a fatal error and windows had to shut down. Until that day, I was siding with Microsoft in the Apple vs. Microsoft battle, but I wasnt an Apple Hater. Originally, I was interested in the Mac Mini, being it the only thing that I could individually afford. After a week or two, I decided that if I were to get another computer, itd have to be a laptop, because Ive never owned one before and I really could use the portability. Id never be able to afford it by myself though. So, I went to my parents. At the first attempt I just asked, Can I get a laptop? Of course, their initial response was a no. So then I told them why I wanted one. My parents are suckers for anything that would better my education. So, I made them a PowerPoint of all the reasons I need/want a MacBook. They were extremely impressed and are deeply considering buying me the new, soon-to-be released MacBook. The next day, any attempts to view any kind of streaming video content would instantly crash my entire wireless network. This problem still exists to this day. (August 23, 2008.) Last night, I was inspired to back up my iTunes library onto a few DVD+RW discs. My attempt quickly failed and resulted in another blue screen [of death] once again telling me about a fatal error. Yes, I have anti-virus and spyware protection software. In fact, I have three different protections. Ive scanned my computer several times and I have not installed any new software, or updated any drivers. So thats my story. I thought itd just be nice to share with you guys. FYI Im 14 years old. Itd be appreciated if you could help me think of a few more things about a MacBook that would benefit me particularly in High School. They are still just considering it, so I need all I can get. I dont know all the great things about Macs because Ive never owned one before. So, as I said, itd be greatly appreciated.
