[EDITED ON 03.18] I bought the MacBook Air. ^.^ "My" retail tech store was having a Father's Day promo, so I was able to get the MacBook Air 13" 256GB for € 1099 (full price is € 1350); I already bought a case and a keyboard cover for it on Amazon. I'm waiting until I have both to unbox the MacBook....I'm so excited. xD [/EDITED]
I’m thinking to get a MacBook Air - as my 2-years-old MacBook Pro mid-2012 is not the best to carry around - so I’ve been watching lots of Macs unboxing videos on YouTube (mostly MacBook Air of course, but I’ve watched MacBook Pro and iMac unboxings as well)...and I’ve been left staggering at how many of these videos are made by young teens or even children. O.O
I’m not a fan of the habit of giving computers and tablets to kids under 15-16 years old to begin with, because it’s guaranteed they’ll be careless with them; that’s why I get really pi*sed when I hear those brats bragging about their MacBook as if they paid it with their own money, when in reality they are spoiled rotten children who didn’t pay for sh*t. And my irritation only grows when I hear their most common “I need it to do homework” excuse....which is BS - they certainly don’t need a $1300 computer for that, a $400-500 Windows is more than enough. But no. These children are the apple in their overgrown-kiddie parents’ eyes, so a normal laptop is of course not good enough for their precious babies....what a pile of disgusting, utter tripe. >_<
Sorry for the rant, but seeing those kids boasting and showing off their Macs when other people have to work their arses off to afford one makes me puke; gonna go watch the Oscars, that’ll surely make feel better.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO
