"I am saving up for a new Mac system"

Find out more

Welcome visitor, :)

My iMac is from early 2009, and it's slowly dying (pout), so thank you for visiting!
The power supply unit and a few other things broke a while ago, but Apple was thankfully able to fix it for now.
The hard drive is getting slower and slower, the monitor has regions of white and yellow as the tubes show wear and tear.
To mention a few things currently wrong with it.

The iMac is basically on 24/7. It's how I socialize, do a few my hobbies, and get through my days
More about that furtherdown this page.

It really is time for a new computer

Why Mac?

One Family
My mobile devices, friends & family their devices, we are basically all Apple users. The way OSX and iOS work as one family is a huge convenience.

My online social life is bigger than my offline one. I sleep different hours than you. This is the way I socialize, which is important for various reasons.

From playing guitar to some coding, it's all exciting to me. Mac products provide me with the tools in a user-friendly way that I've never experienced before. It's made me enjoy my hobbies so much more.

The quality of the screen, the ability to get sharp text and images upon re-sizing, in various resolutions. Together with the amazing accessibility support OSX offers, this is the best I've experienced with my poor eyes, ever.
