Over the past several months, I have felt great guilt as I watched Bryan struggle to render his 3D homework on his old Mac in his basement office. While I happily do the blog dance on my lovely newish iMac in my upstairs office. (If you don’t understand the comparison, it’s like me making those pre-fab cookies with the shapes already cut out in Emeril’s oven, while Bryan tries to make a soufflé on a camping stove.) He keeps telling me it’s “fine.” Or that he can make due with a Mac Mini. Well, screw that.
We couldn’t afford what I wanted to get him (A MacPro Tower with mega power and bells and whistles) but we could afford a 20″ iMac that is similar to mine but just a little more powerful (and has that crazy Intel chip). Plus WAY better than what he has now. And his silent suffering will stop.
But the best part?
He will now have an iSight on his machine too.
I can see it now.
Aimee: How is the basement?
Bryan: Good. Are you ready for bed?
Aimee: Yes. You?
Bryan: Yes. I will be right up.
SEE? It is sooooooooo worth the money.
