    Just bought a 64 GB Ipad 4. My Ipad 2 works perfectly fine right now but I could not resist. 🙂

  • Love it! nice work.

    Like I said a few days ago, Papa needs a brand new MacBook.

    Seriously though, I have a gift certificate and a reimbursement at my work encouraging its employees to buy a new computer that’ll expire once and for all at the end of the year. So today is as good a day as any.

    And I figure I should just go for it. So a rMBP in 13 or 15 inches?

    Oh and I forgot to mention my mother has called dibs on my ’09 MacBook. She wants to use it to sync up with her and my father’s iPad. And you can’t say no to that right?

  • Slugmeister

    Just purchased a new MacBook Air for a little bit more than a refurbished model. Definitely worth staying up late for (I know my wife will be happy in the morning).

  • Saw the iPad 4 today in Best Buy. It definitely is a beauty. I’m tempted to pick one up myself.
