I bought a brand new Powerbook!
It’s the 15”, 1Ghz, 512mb, 60Gb, Airport kind. I stripped out the DVD writer ‘cos it would just sit idle and it’s £170 that I can spend on beer.
I’m fucking elated! A brand sparkly Powerbook, touched by none other, is on it’s way straight from Apple. After owning eight computers in my life, this will be the first brand-new boxed one.
I’m kind of stuck what to call it. Diane, the name of my current iBook, came from Twin Peaks. She is Coop’s PA, though we never see her and she is only mentioned by Coop as he dictates to her. I thought it was appropriate. After just leafing through a few pages of TP trivia (check out Twin Peaks online), I may opt for Margaret, the Log Lady’s real name. If you are unfamiliar with TP, sort it out!
