My computer is nearly on its last leg, and I've been pondering what my next machine will be. Of course, I salivate when looking at the Apple's Macbook line, but then I start looking at the prices and remember that I'm living on a working girl's salary! Pricing aside, I believe that the Macbook Pro may be joining the ranks of my now defunct line-up of laptops because I need something for more than just computing power. Since laptops and other mobile devices are becoming the latest "must-have-even-if-I-don't-know-how-to-use-it" accessories, I need something that's aesthetically pleasing. I like the word aesthetically, by the way. Bottom line, although I need functionality, I want a pretty laptop. Is that too much to ask for? Are laptops pretty? Maybe I'll check with the Geek Squad at work and see if they can find me a better term for a laptop that looks great! I don't know if it's safe to approach them since the last conversation that I had revolved around the new version of Ubuntu. I love technology, and I'm surrounded by it every day, but I don't think I want to gloat over the new user interface of Ubuntu. It does look amazing though!
