OK, well here is the deal.... I really want a Macbook for Christmas. Why you ask? Well we only have one computer in the house, a year-old Gateway, running Windows XP. I hate Windows. There is no way to describe how much I hate it.... It is always crashing on me and locking up on me. I know it is not my hardware, I will explain in a minute. Now because this is the only computer in the house, and me being very computer-literate person, my mom is always blaming me for everythign that goes wrong with the stupid computer. I hate this and would love to have my own computer so I can show her that me using the computer has nothing to do with it messing up.
Now, for those of you who dont know, it is possible to run OS X Tiger on an x86 computer. It is illegal and not reccommend, but you can. Recently I have been doing this just to see how it works, and I have to say that I have fallen in love with Mac. It is just so stable, even running on a PC designed for Windows.
So by now I am hoping that you see my point.... here are the reason I already have to convince her I should get a Macbook:
That is about all I can think off, but I'm desperate for one so advice is greatly welcome.
- I will not have to use the PC anymore
- She will be able to do her stuff on the PC while I use my laptop (she is a teacher)
- It should last me though highschool (I'm going into 9th grade)
- I get it for Christmas 06, and it also counts as my b-day present for 07.
PS: Now I know this is a long ways off, but I need to start talking to them early if I have a chance of getting one.
