All of the stars aligned and Fiddledaddy took me out on a date. Without an entourage. I was craving steak so we headed to Outback armed with a coupon. The wait time was somewhere around a day and a half, so we chose the outdoor dining option. Which consisted of a mesh metal table and two matching and equally uncomfortable chairs. It was terribly romantic. Except for the cigarette smoke. And car exhaust fumes. And the Florida heat. And the flies.
“But other than that, how did you enjoy the play, Mrs. Lincoln?”
But I had a wonderful time, which tells you how desperate I was to be out of the house with my husband, yet without the
Usually after a date, we find ourselves wandering the aisles of the local Wal-Mart. But on this particular evening we decided to shake things up a little and visit a new Apple store that opened recently. It’s not an official Apple store, per se, but all they carry are Mac products. So, that makes them
a toy store an Apple store in my book.
And speaking of books, I wanted to show you a little something I’ve been coveting.
This is the 11.6 inch MacBook Air. It is super light weight (lighter than air, as it were), and is just ever so slightly larger than the iPad. I could fit it in my purse. If I buy a bigger purse.
At first I had my eye on the iPad, but had to really consider what I would use it for. Ideally, I need something from which I can work on the fly. As in while waiting at the doctor’s office, or at the gym while my children are being taken care of and I should be exercising but aren’t, etc.
The iPad could work for this, but if you ever saw me texting you would know that I type 4 words per hour. With my pointer finger. And the iPad, to me, would be very much like texting. The nice little sales girl who looked to be all of 13 told me that I could buy a iPad case which contains a little bluetooth keyboard, so it would be more like regular typing, employing all 10 fingers.
I was intrigued. The iPad retails for about $500, and the bluetooth keyboard is around $100. Which is cheaper than the retail price for the 11.6 MacBook Air which
hoovers hovers around $999.
At this point, it’s all a dream. I’ve drained the couch of all loose change but am thinking creatively.
So, to all fellow Mac fanatics, do you have any experience with either the iPad or the 11.6 inch MacBook Air? And if so, can you tell me the pros and cons?
As usual, I’m taking to the internet before considering a major purchase. #whyadvertiserslistentomommybloggers.
