My New Macbook

by , under House and Home

Speaking of GeekBling… I ordered a new laptop today for home. I got a 13″ white Macbook:

Apple Macbook

2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM-2x1GB
200GB Serial ATA @ 4200 rpm
Superdrive 6x
No Modem
No Optional Software
Keyboard/Mac OS
Country Kit

I’m embarrassed to admit that my current personal device is a graphite iMac, circa April 5, 2000, as seen in this old blog post I created when originally bought the thing. It was quite pretty, at the time.

My Graphite iMac

Worth about $20 today on eBay. It’s been supplemented for the last several years by my high-powered Powerbook from work, but that’s not really very cool at all, and I try hard to minimize my home-use. Especially since my work laptop is now having some hard drive issues. Yikes! We were going to wait until my house sold to do this, but it’s high time to cut the cord.

So now begins the anxious wait for the shipping and delivery. Order tracking is great and all, but I really wish Apple had a “Now were taking it off the shelf. Now we’re configuring it for you. Now we’re moving it across the warehouse” real-time notifying system. I wanna know exactly where my new toy is. Sadly the only information I have is “Not yet shipped.” Sigh.

    Awww…. Now we’ll have the same computer! It’s what bilerico.com is written on! 🙂
    They were REALLY fast at getting my computer to me. By tomorrow it should show that it’s shipped and then I think it took like an extra day to arrive. Pretty amazing since it’s coming from China through Alaska.
    No slow boat for Apple!

    It shipped! Yay! It shipped at 12:38 a.m. And it’s now on it’s way here. And I can track it via order tracking now, so I know when it will arrive. Yay!

    Ordered my MacBook on Jan. 18th and it still hasn’t shipped! They said it supposed to ship by the 23rd so i am hoping that it ships by tomorrow! I agree, “Order tracking is great and all, but I really wish Apple had a “Now were taking it off the shelf. Now we’re configuring it for you. Now we’re moving it across the warehouse” real-time notifying system. I wanna know exactly where my new toy is. Sadly the only information I have is “Not yet shipped.” Sigh.”
    This couldn’t be more true! I better get it by the w/e!
