Adam had been asking to get me a new computer for a couple of months. He knew I was frustrated. But if there's one thing I hate (much) worse than a crashy computer, it's spending money! Especially when we've got lots of expenses happening. So I said, "Thank you but no," even when he got the children to chip in birthday money to help pay for it. Because I'm cheap that way. (sigh)
Finally, I'd had enough! Too much crashy stuff happening! I was restarting six times a day.
So here's the new baby in the house! And because we waited, it was $100 cheaper. This little tablet, designed by Quantum View (Who are they? What -- not Apple???) only cost us $160. It's a 10.1" screen with a magnetic attachment to the keyboard. The case shapes into a back support for the screen.
It's faster and in all ways superior to that pathetic, short-lived Mac product. And this one may be short-lived too, but at least it didn't cost $1000. Ugh.
In addition to retiring the iBook, I've slowly stopped using this camera too, which is sad. When Adam bought me a cheap smart phone at Christmas, it changed my photographing world.
Now if I can just get used to this itty-bitty keyboard ....
