So I finally broke down and got a new laptop (mine old one was like 6 years old). The one I opted for was the faster 15″ MacBook Pro (2.33Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 256MB video RAM, etc.)
All in all, a pretty sweet machine (and I can run things like SuSE Linux [or any other x86 operating system] on it at the same time as I run OS X [without emulation]), but here’s the problem… I turned it on, created the admin account and now I find myself using my old laptop instead of the new one because the new one is just *too* nice. Like I don’t want to get any fingerprints on it or something (I don’t know why exactly). haha
Hopefully it will pass soon… otherwise I have an expensive piece of art that no one is allowed to touch. 🙂

I can dibs if you don’t want to use it. I am still using my 1.2 GHz Pentium M, 512MB, 128 video RAM, etc…
Very nice choice! I have the same feeling than you, i have a iMac 20″ Core 2 Duo and i take care of it like if it was my baby. My dell laptop must be somewhere (full of dust) in the closet but who cares now 😉
I have the solution.
What you have to do is let a little kitten scratch the hell out of it,
then you won’t be so precious about it.
I went to see the “kitten scratch the hell out of it,” but I think the Kitty grew up and had an accidents because it was no longer available.
The MBP is NICE. I got one myself. When my 10-year-old stepdaughter got a scratch on it, that was it for her, no using the new laptop.
