Macs are like crack

Recommended Posts

Has anybody noticed that once you buy your first Mac, that you often buy several more? I have. I got an iMac as a present, and a month later I was in dept up to my eyeballs paying for a PowerBook.

In my experience, Macs are more addictive than morphine. I had an injection of time-release morphine last friday for pain relief after surgery, and when that 48 hour dose wore off I wanted more Macs, but not more morphine.

 

I'm craving a 13.3" widescreen notebook with an Intel Core something, OS X of course, and longer battery life than my PowerBook.

 

I got my first Mac as a birthday present, a G4 Mac Mini, last May. Since then the secret mind control technology built in to all Apple products has forced me to buy a Power Mac, 2 iPods, a PowerBook and an Intel iMac.

 

Today I think they used their RSS feed to make me crave the new version of Aperture, now a Universal Binary, and at a reduced price.

Too bad macs are more expensive than crack... I got my eMac almost 4 years ago. $1,300 turns out to be alot of money for both an 11 year old (as I was then) and a 15 year old (as I am now). Unfortunately my family isn't rich enough to give eachother computers for presents.

So I can neither confirm nor deny the theory that macs are addictive :wink:

But do you want about 50 more Macs?

No, I would be satisfied with a nice Powermac G5 fully loaded for a home computer and a macbookpro fully loaded for on the go.

Of course, I would be okay with another gig of memory for my emac and a G4 ibook

even without a mac or iPod of my own I can contest that they are indeed addictive.

 

With my ventures in using Tiger in the classroom I've become more knowledgable than most teachers about them, and have even d/l FlyAKiteOSX to at least have the appearance of mac on the giant box I have now.

 

If I had the money I probably would've gotten a MacWorld Subscription LOOOOOOOOOOONG ago :P

You know what I mean. Do you want more Macs? 50 was a bit overstated.

I have been using Macs my whole life. I had no need to "switch." However, I don't think that its just Macs that are on crack. Had Windows had several upgrades, people would have contimuously bought them too, but Windows has been dormant for a very long time and it is even dealying its vista. In summary, computers are like crack. Buy 1, buy more.

When I registered my PowerBook I got 3 free months of Macworld.

WoW!!   :shock:

 

I could have added in the "work" part that I help support over 200 macs along with xserves, xraids, windows servers, ect. but I thought that wouldn't be fair since i personally don't use them!

my name is cyndy & i am a macaholic. i've had about a dozen macs over the last 20 years. whenever i get a new one, i have a really hard time letting the old one go. i've got 3 dead ones around the house for absolutely no reason. i sold my last 12" powerbook to a friend, so i still have visiting rights. i live a few blocks away from an apple store (dangerous to the bank acct) & i stop in a couple of times a week to pet the display macs & oggle the cinema displays. i don't need more than one mac every few years, but i'm constantly thinking about my next fix, i mean mac.

I have to agree Mac's are worse then any drug. :lol:

 

I bought my first Mac in April 05 and ever since then I find my self at work everyday on the apple website seeing what I'm gonna buy next. It's like a bad habit that I can't break. Needless to say my credit card company loves me!!
