I normally would have gone the route of purchasing one through macconnection.com like I did last time, but their options consisted mainly of laptops with glossy screens. My old laptop has an anti-glare screen and I liked it. I tried out my boss' glossy screen laptop at work and I hated it. The light from the window behind me reflects off of the screen. It's distracting and it gives me a headache. If I were only using it at home, it would be fine. Since I'm toting it to and from, I want something I'll be happy with. Anti-glare was going to be the only way. On apple.com I have to shell out an extra $150 for that option. When I compared it to the one on macconnection.com, their anti-glare screen laptop was only $50 less. So I coughed up the extra $50 since the one on the Apple site had the newer graphics technology (not that I would have probably noticed anyway). I'm pleased, but now comes the waiting game. I am not patient when it comes to waiting for things I need or want right away. I'll be getting mine on Monday at the earliest, Wednesday at the latest. I am hoping for the former. Until that computer is sitting quietly on my desk or lap, I will be restless with anticipation. I can hardly wait to get my hands on that thing!
