I do not know if I posted this before but I'm going to tell you the story how I got my first Mac. I have been using a Compaq Presario since 2007 and it has been through war. My nephew chew through my power cord and ripped all the keys off. It was a soldier fighting to the last body. I only used it for music so I really didn't need it as much.
Then all of a sudden I had a physical memory dump of death. Which wouldn't even allow my computer to boot, sucked. So I was computerless then one day my little brother asked me what was wrong with my computer and I told him. He brushed it off like it wasn't anything. Now my little brother makes so much more money than me. Well one day I was at his house and he pops out of nowhere with a white box and a receipt. My first Mac turns out to be the new Macbook.
Nowadays I'm picking up MacWorld magazines and learning loads of info about using this. I love MacForums for the great help it has given me. Can't believe it though. I love it. Wish I had a invisible shield for it though. It gets dirty quick.

Seems like he has to destroy your current computer first before he can. >_<"

Anyways to the OP, that's a pretty wild story. Well at least your younger took responsibility after wrecking your computer. I know a lot of people that wouldn't own up. >_>" I think I need to find better friends.
