Mostly Computerless

Macbook and New Hard Drive

I feel in love instantly. I took the plunge last March, ironically a year ago today.  I bought my first Mac, a Macbook actually.  I saved up my money, sold my old computer on Craig’s List, and took the plunge. I know that I bought my Macbook last year on this date, because my warranty was about to expire.  I purchased the extended warranty a few weeks ago. So now it is covered until 2013.

But I had a problem with Mr. Macbook recently. You see, he started getting slow.  I diagnosed it, and also took it into the Apple Store.  I found out that my hard drive was almost full.  The Genius told me that my hard drive was almost at capacity and that 3/4 of the info on it was pictures and iTunes.  I had already purchased an external hard drive, but it was not enough.  He also warned me that if I dropped the external or lost it, my pictures would be gone.

I decided to buy a new hard drive after this discussion.  I was taught how to install it, etc.  But I’ve had some issues since installing it.  I have all of my files backed up on our Time Capsule, and they are downloaded.  I just need to get everything working.

I will do some posting as soon as I get it back to full working order.  I was trying to edit some photos the other day, and it kept getting slower and slower.  I knew that I would have to do the hard drive transfer soon.

I can’t wait to show you more photos of Angry Kid’s room, and to talk about the Housewares Show that I went to in Chicago.

P.S. I’m using Angry Husband’s PC right now. I hate it!

Oh great. I'm just learning how to be a mac person and I've only got a year before I fill it up with pictures and music? Technically I already have more music than fits on the hard drive. I'm rocking three externals. Don't tell, I kinda miss my PC.

I increased my RAM a couple months ago and also have an external hard drive. I'm such a Mac fan .... Sigh!

I empathize with your situation! I am sending my laptop off this weekend under an almost expired warranty. How dare they tell me to send it off followed by "If you don't get it back in 10 days you should call"...10 days?!
