View Full Version : Funny how things go full circle.

So after winning a 1ghz powerbook online and finalizing my plans to move back up to Rhode Island (My mom apologized for everything.) , I couldn't help but laugh as I smoked the day's last cigarette.

I'm going to have to sell my MacBook to pay my dad the $450 I still owe him for it. I don't want to leave here owing him money. Plus I won't need it when I'm back in Rhode Island. The 1GHz titanium powerbook will be just fine for what I need up there. However the fact a 1GHz TiBook was going to be my main 'book soon made me chuckle.

It was my now ex girlfriend who got me into Apples - she had a 1GHz TiBook.
I met her on October 21sh, 2007. I'm supposed to get my TiBook on the 21st of October. Plus I just think it's kinda cool that out of the 20+ Apples I've had in the past year, I'm ending it with the kind that got it all started.

....Plus I got the TiBook for $50 ;) Can't complain about that!

20 macs in a year, only to end up with one? How does that happen? :o

do you mean apple products in general? or just Mac computers? Twenty computers in on e year is so much, how would you live changing computers almost twice a month.

Yeah, that is pretty crazy!

I used to be like that with cars too which is why the Jaguar I have right now is so special to me. I'll list all the Apples I've had since January:
-600MHz iBook G3
-300MHz Blue Clamshell
-500MHz TiBook
-366MHz Lime Clamshell
-3 more Blue Clamshells @300MHz
-2 Indigo Clamshells
-3 Tangerine Clamshells (I sold clamshells)
-700MHz eMac
-1.67 GHz Powerbook
-400MHz TiBook
-900MHz G4i iBook
-800MHz G4 iBook
-12" 1.33GHz Powerbook
- 2 MacBooks that were eBay disasters
-1.42 GHz 14" iBook
-This Macbook
-My Apple II
-500MHz G3 iBook
-Another 400MHz TiBook
-1GHz TiBook

I made a profit on all of them except the 1GHz TiBook (Of course) and this Macbook, and the ones I still have which are in my mac specs. Just sold the G3 iBook too for double profit.

20 computers in a year down to 1 how does that happen?

I'd love to get rid of my eMac too so I don't have to lug it up back up north. If anyone's interested let me know - it's green, not white.
