    ...when you cooly, yet dramatically remove it from its sleeve to subtly show off its dimensions to anyone looking your way.

    ...when you use "sexy" and "computer" in the same sentence.

    ...when you won't let food, drink, children, dogs, or any other multicellular lifeform anywhere in the vicinity of it.

    ...when you realize that you have 3rd degree burns on your lap resulting from simply watching a YouTube video.

    I guess I must be the freak. I've never described a computer as sexy. A woman, yes... A computer, sorry doesn't do it for me :D


    That being said, I'll take this a different direction:

    You know you're a Mac Mini owner when:


    You can't remember where left the computer.


    I got my Mac Pro, and put my Mac Mini away for a bit (until I had time to get it ready for my daughter).

    So, finally the day comes that I'm ready to start working on it and getting it set up for my daughter to use (replaced her iMac G3 with it).

    Well, that's where the problem began. I knew I had set it aside. But, I couldn't remember where. I knew it was basically in the open as I don't put computer's in closets.

    So, I begin going through the house trying to locate the Mini. And, eventually I did locate it. It was in the spare bedroom, and wasn't really buried. But, didn't jump right out at me either.

    I thought to myself, "when was the last time I forgot where a computer was?"

    I have always had tower systems or all-in-ones. And, a few portables here and there.

    But, I have never had to ask myself where I left a computer. Usually it's quite obvious where the computer is. You see it every time you go into a room. Even my laptops are quite noticeable.

    But, the mini, well that thing just hid in plain sight. I had been in the room several times recently and hadn't noticed it. And, I seriously had to think about where it it might be.

    Of course, I know where every other computer is. I can't miss them :D

    make a full sentence out of your line and start it with "you know you're a Macbook Air owner when..." and your sentence doesn't work.


    when you pick up a Macbook Pro and nearly throw out your back!

    Many Macbook Airs have a nasty issue with stuttering video playback and crashing, kernel panicking, core shutdown when watching youtube or other flash content.... even general video content.

    You know your an MBA owner when... You take a lot of crap from uninformed people that read something on the internet, but they're curiosity gets the best of them and they can't wait to touch it... Ahhh the reality distortion field!

    LOL!

    I feel sorry for the few who have had nothing but problems.

    You know you're an MBA owner when any discussion about your computer devolves into a flamewar about whether or not it's an overpriced status symbol.

    Ha ha, indeed!


    You know you're an MBA-owner when …

    you care more about "sexyness" than practicality

    you make up excuses like "it may shutdown, but boy does it look good".

    you caress your laptop more than you caress your woman

    you caress your laptop to make up for not having a woman

    you need to buy another computer to install a program from disc.

    Your phone is thicker than your computer.

    When you think it's a good idea not to be able to replace the battery yourself.

    When you think it's a good idea to have a mechanical flap with plugs in it.

    When you don't care about footprint or huge bezels.

    When you care more about looking good at starbucks than getting work done.

    When you're convinced that looks make up for incompetence.

    when you're convinced that it doesn't matter how you perfom, but rather how you look while performing.

    when you're willing to let a big corporation do with you as they please.

    When you smile while they do it to you and ask for an encore.
