I thought that I would be writing this entry earlier. I dreamed of this, my best present ever. I thought about how it would be to open up that pristine white box.
Sad, I know, but I’m a geek. I stand by my dreams, though. This one came true.
It arrived in its shiny white box. Sliding open the lid revealed a white cardboard sheet with a gray Apple logo and the words “Made in Cupertino”. I lifted it to reveal the neatly packaged accessories. Setting them aside one by one, I finally unveiled the pièce de résistance, the even shinier white iBook.
Nothing is perfect, but I have enjoyed no computer as much as I have this one. OS X has its problems and quirks, probably as much as Microsoft, but the sheer smoothness of the operating system makes up for many a fault. Things work together much more seamlessly than anything under Windows.
I worry a bit about the logic board problems that many people seem to be having with their iBooks, but I can only cross my fingers and hope that it never happens to me. I hope that Apple keeps going strong and manages to overcome their problems, because I believe they make a great product and I want it to stick around. For now, I’ll do my best to support them. In fact, I look forward to the day when I can pick up an iPod.
