Mac & Me…

…was the title of a really lousy E.T. The Extra-terrestrial knock-off. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about here.

For the longest time we didn’t have a computer at home after our CPU crashed completely almost a year ago. My mom would use Word and Excel for her church-related activities. My sister often used Word and Powerpoint. I’d limit myself to Word and surfing—well, not exactly the latter since we were on dial-up.

Yesterday my mom decided we really need a computer. So we trooped to the BPI Appliance Madness in Glorietta to scout around. I was thinking of just a simple PC, with a big enough memory for music and pictures—that was it. So in the middle of looking at all these laptops, I heard my mom call me. “Here, let’s get this!” she said, pointing.

My heart stopped. I asked her incredulously, “Are you sure?”

We talked to the saleslady about the price, the features, etc. My mom just likes how it looks. Then I gathered my mom, my sister and my brother, and asked: “Well, can we afford this with our combined salaries?” And my sister said, “Let’s also see if we can toss in a printer as well.” In the end we went for it.

So now we have a new iMac G5 with built-in iSight in our home.

We also bought a simple HP colored printer. Now we’ve begun scouting around for a good DSL provider—why settle for dial-up when you’re already using an iMac? Why drive a Kia when you already have a BMW?

Last night I started playing with what we call our Big McMac. It took all of my willpower to shut down and go to sleep at 12:30am. I can imagine weekends just staying at home.

I now really am a MacVie! Wheee!
