Meet Mac

Last modified on October 12th, 2007

This is my mac.

He’s pretty fun, kind of shinny, not too heavy, and he can nearly last a whole DVD without dying. But when he sleeps, he sometimes doesn’t wake up. When I iPhoto him too hard, sometimes he rebels and he goes to sleep instead. When I photoshop, sometimes he chugs away doing something else, almost like “don’t worry, I’ll get to that eventually.”

I put more ram in Mac, hoping to make him happier, but he’s still sad. When he crashes, he does it slowly to rub it in, slowly fading the screen from top to bottom until he’s gone. He used to do this once a month, but lately he does it more.

When Mac was new, he didn’t do any of these things. He was exciting, he was fast, he didn’t crash and he liked waking up in the morning. He iPhoto’ed for hours, played nice with photoshop, and loved to iChat.

I’m not sure what happened, but I miss the old Mac.

    I have to agree my Mac is the same. Beautiful, light and I really like the magnetic power connector. I would say my Mac crashes more than my XP laptop did, although it is way nicer. Hopefully Leopard will fix things?

    Weird, my mac doesn’t exhibit any of these behaviors. I can’t remember the last time it crashed – like maybe 9 months ago. I think you should take it into the Apple store.

    I called them, and they thought it was the sleep sensor, but they needed it for two weeks to be sure.
