    There comes a point in time in a young man and young female's life when they... wait wrong speech.

    After telling one Apple store to hold a 20" my family and I wen't to get it for me. Got there, and the employee mentions I get a free printer... but they are sold out the good ones. So I was like OMGZ, and he was like LOL, and I wass like STOP... sorry... internet lingo...

    Anyways, I'm like hell... I might aswell just wait and bring my cheap ass another time and get that free printer. :)


    Ok... back to the story. I took a look at the 20" screen, and there is no problem at all. I couldn't tell no discouleration. So to all those people discouraged at getting the 20", don't be and save your $300 dollar menu nuggets.

    So I was like cool. Then I looked at the 24" and was like :):confused::eek::mad::rolleyes::cool::p;):D:eek::(:apple:. It was like eating a razzle candy for the first time! Your like OMG, it's gum and candy!!! They didn't have anymore 24" left. So we called four more Apple stores, nope, nope, coke no pepsi :p.

    Went home while my father giving me this whole "it does the same thing, just bigger" talk. I listened, he offered me to go around and get the 20". I refused, but thanked him for the talk.

    It's 'BOUT 8:15 as we arrived home, and we called 411 and asked for Apple listings. They gave us one in Columbia Maryland. THen we were like let's go for it. So we left, called then and asked them to hold the last 24" for me. She sayed she had to check with their manager, and took our number.

    Called back around 8:40 and talked to someone else, he relayed a message saying they can't hold it since it's high demand product. We explained that we were on the way to buy it, and he said no can do, policy, and suggested we turn around and head home. My family being troops we are neglected his offer and kept going.

    Long story short get in the mall around 9:05, run ALL THE WAY OVER to the store, and the store is packed. My dad saw the lad we talked to and noticed her voice, she was suprised we made it, and they had it in the back for us.

    We are in the store around 9:30 and they close at 9:30 and they were closing. Got my dad the vieo iPod, and my mom's iPod nano should be here Friday, also got the printer.

    We left the story driving into the sunlight like a end of a comedy family movie, though it was night time... :D

    This behemoth is LARGE, SHARP, PERFECT!!!! My eyes hurted for a while, and I'm still adjusting.

    Now I have a 20" Dell XPS 400, and a 24" iMac. :p

    Moral of the story is that family is forever, and forever is family. Also Moral Orel is an awesome and adult swim rocks... oh and BLEACH is the best anime!!!

    Oh, and I know I mispelled "speech" in the title, just having fun... :)

    I read the story, and loved it, it made me LOL a once or twice. :D

    I have the 24 inch 2.4Ghz 1 gig of ram, 320 gig hard drive, and of course the mysterious ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro.

    I absolutely love it, it's gigantic. I have to look at what I'm currently doing, more so than on a smaller screen.

    Did I mention it's gigantic. :)

    That may have been the strangest story I've ever read in my life. However, I *think* that you got a computer somewhere during it, so congratulations. :)

    I'm just jealous of your ability to find a 24" iMac in a store.

    Thanks everyone.

    I'm not rich! :D

    Dude, the last Apple store was the seventh store we checked, we called all seven but only visited two of the seven. IT just happens to be over 8 Apple stores within the 50 mile distance from Maryland.:)

    I actually found one today, but mistakes in the return/exchange process left my credit card getting denied. They said they'll hold it for me, but I'm still a little :mad:
