Theres something called' "Keeping up with the Jonses" and I'm not so sure why people do this. It's a status thing and I've noticed it plenty when it comes to computers, especially Mac's. It goes something like this:"Debbie went and bought a Dell, I feel badly for her because I bought a Mac." or "I ordered my Mac with The bigger hard drive and .............." It's actually kind of sad when you start defining yourself by all the stuff you buy and own, because it doesn't make you a better person to have a nicer computer then someone else. So why do people do this so much? I mean look you already have a really nice looking computer that costs 7- 9 percent more then any PC. Shouldn't YOU be happy with it? YOU're the one that uses it, not your friend, or co worker. What does it matter if you bought the Mac Mini with Lion Server for your own personal home computer? So YOU spent $200.00 more than anybody else. Why should YOU care if someone else bout the 17" Mac Book and you bought the 15"? I can see buying something to suit the purpose, like buying a Mac Pro because you need something for digital Video editing, and want something expandable, or buying the high end iMac because it has the video processor YOU need to play your games. But buying the more expensive computer does not make YOU a better person.Theres other things that make a good person, not how much money you spend. So why not just be happy with what you have, no need to impress anyone else, its' your stuff not theirs.
