THE MAC IS BACK!!!!!!! November 24, 2009 Good news, peeps. I stopped by this place yesterday. Unannounced and without an appointment. But of course that wasn’t a problem for these Genius’. Those folks got me a walk-up appointment in about 20 minutes, and I met with Chris. I wish I would’ve taken a photo of him. I relayed the issue to him and he confirmed that my hard drive was dead in about 3 minutes. He told me my Baby was no longer under warranty, but after popping the battery out, he informed me that because I had on the hottest boots he’d seen all week, he would replace my hard drive at NO COST!!!!!! Okay . . . so maybe it wasn’t because of the boots (well I actually believe it was and it just would’ve been inappropriate to say so) but because there was some “recall” (or something like that) on the hard drive that I had. Chris said the replacement would be on them. You don’t know how happy I was to hear those words–saved me $1600!!!! He also informed me that they would install all original programs on my computer, but “unfortunately” they would have to DOUBLE MY MEMORY, since that’s all they had. Awwww, boo hoo for me. 🙂 They actually had the drive in stock, and replaced it in about 2 hours! I am LOVIN’ this day!!!!!! It’s like I basically have a new computer, and all I have to do is buy the iLife ’09 /Snow Leopard package for $129 and I’ll have all the latest stuff. I didn’t even have that before my computer went down. I could actually buy the latest operating system (Snow Leopard) for $29, but I really want the new stuff for my photos, so I’ll wait. I’m still able to do everything as before, but there’ve (made that word up) just been some changes since new applications/systems have come out. This is what I’m lookin’ at now . . . Never been so happy to see that plain blue screen. This is the reason people get Macs. They are admittedly expensive, but the customer service, one-on-one attention and live help can’t be beat! The store manager even came out to see my boots, I mean, to see if I was happy with my experience . Uh, . . . hells yeah! I was so happy that I went out and bought this beaut (pronounced, “bee-yoot”)! Now ain’t that a fine piece of somethin’? $20. Can’t wait to get it done, and I have some pep in my step now, too. I’ve been seeing some interesting pieces with color, so I think I’m going to go that direction. Things are lookin’ up, I tell ‘ya. God is good!!!!! We should be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow.

Beth@The Stories of A to Z November 24, 2009 at 9:48 am (9 years ago) Yay for the boots…I mean, for Mac’s customer service :). First off, I liked my idea for a title to this entry better but have to admit that yours is much more appropriate. Second off (do people every say second off?), I want a picture of these sexy boots that seem to bring luck and put people into trances. Please edit said post with pic of boots! 🙂 Reply L.Duncan@home23duncanboys November 24, 2009 at 10:32 am (9 years ago) You are a mess! And I love that desk!!! Reply Moni @ CL Journal November 24, 2009 at 10:40 am (9 years ago) Dayka! Yay! See this is why I love Apple. I had a problem with my iMac keyboard and I had took it back and gave me a brand new one. Now I did have Apple care (I paid for 3 years, which runs out next August), but I love this company. I have basically abandoned Windows. I hope to purchase a Macbook in January. Desk looks great! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Did you show picture of your boots? Gotta see these babies! LOL!

I was a beautiful desk at Miss Mustard Seed that was painted a deep color with a black insert on the top. You might want to check that one out.Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope the paint/oil tip comes in handy for you.
