I bought a Mac!

by Brandon on April 9th, 2006

There are those who said this day would never come… what are they to say now? =D

Yes, it’s true.  I bought a Mac.  The end of days must be near.  I guess I’m going to have to stop cutting my hair and learn to play hacky sack or something.  Oh, and lots of exotic coffees.

My choice of forbidden fruit?  A dual-core Intel-based Mac Mini.

It just got it hooked up to my Samsung DLP TV, and after finding the power button, it is up and running, installing various service packs and updates as I write this.

Why the mini?  Two reasons:

1)  I’ve never had a Mac, and I’d like to see what all the fuss is about.
2)  It’s small, quiet, and as of this week it can run Windows!  Perfect for my living room.

I’ve run into a couple of problems with that idea, though.  So I’ll post more on that later.

    I understand from another website that you got Vista running without too many problems. I sure wish I could get a copy of Vista lol…

    Brandon, I noticed that you work on the WDS, you may want to check out Sherlock perhaps while you are exploring around your new mac.
