I'm still waiting for my student loan funding to hit my bank account, but I have number crunched and I can order it tomorrow and repay that money when it hits. It will be a few weeks or so before I can order the Magic Trackpad and 8GB of ram, then the 23-34" monitor. I'm thinking Lion is gunna stink with my Mighty Mouse with a dead ball (and it worked a few weeks ago until my teen got her grubby hands on it). OH well, I shall suffer to avoid the funky issues I'm having running this machine with my school stuff. I'm having issues deciding how to migrate everything to it, I guess I will just run it plain for now - throwing Office on there, and then take it on as I make a plan. I'd obviously like to move the iTunes stuff to it so I can sync my phone and ipad to it - but I don't know if I want to share it this way, or move it here and share it that way. I think moving it here is the best idea right now. I need to reformat that Mini and fix some funky hard drive partition issue. UGH, maybe I will just stop thinking about it right now! Anyway, i'm excited to get it - even if i'd rather have the option for Snow Leopard and rosetta. Oh and I probably would order the trackpad if my daughter weren't having surgery next week. I need some $$ cushion - the last time i had a child having surgery I had another one need 3 trips to the ER in the same week.
