It’s Official: I’m Bi!
Bi-processorial, that is. Meet the new computer: An iMac 1.8 GHz. 20″ screen and 1.25 GB RAM. I was planning to hold out for the release of Tiger OS later this month, but I want to write Ghost Brigades on the new computer and I didn’t want to wait any longer (I’ve got a tight enough deadline as it is). Also someone was selling this particular one on eBay for a price I could deal with. It’s near new (the guy had been using it for three months) and he jammed in a lot of RAM, which meant that aside from someone else touching it for a little while, it was a better computer than what I’d get off the shelf from Apple. QED.
As I’ve mentioned before, this doesn’t mean I’ll stop using my PC; for the moment the Mac is for book writing and the PC is for netsurfing, answering mail and etc (I need to buy an Airport thingie for the iMac before it has net connectivity). This is why I can claim to be bi-processorial. But I’ve very pleased, and the Mac looks even nicer than I expected it to. Tonight I’ll rearrange the real estate on my desk to accommodate both computers and then we’ll be ready to go. Whee!
