Selling my laptop - Journal of Omnifarious

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Apple has announced a release date for the new version of Mac OS X. It will be released on April 29th. This means it's safe for me to get a new laptop as I will get a voucher for a free upgrade to OS X 10.4 when it comes out.

That means I will be selling my old laptop. I will be putting a version of OS X 10.4 on it as well. If any of you out there want a new laptop, I'd rather sell it to someone I know than someone I don't. Looking at eBay tells me that $1000 isn't in the least unrealistic. I won't be selling it with all that add-on software, but it will come with an extra battery and a longer AppleCare support contract. I won't be giving it to anyone until it has Tiger on it though, so that means it will be after April 29th. It does have 2 years of an Applecare support contract left on it. You'd also get some free tech support from me if you needed it.

I really like this laptop. After using an Apple laptop, I will never again go back to a PC laptop, even if it has Linux on it. But, I wanted the faster processor speed, backlit keyboard, and nicer port placement on the newer laptops. I didn't initially think I'd care about those things, but I was wrong.

Hi, you lousy Slashdot apostate.

I liked your comment in this old Some%20Woman journal entry, so I'll be watching you on LJ.

Peace out.:)

I feel all "being given the hairy eyeball of the state" now. Wait, I already felt that way. :-)

I think this works much better as a forum for personal journals than Slashdot does. I still post my rare moments of supreme technical achievement in Slashdot though. :-)

Thanks for announcing yourself.

I'm probably buying a Mini-Mac on the way home today (if it comes with a free Tiger upgrade). :)

From what I understand, it won't be free, but it will be very cheap. Like $10.
