The Phuns did their part to stimulate the economy.
My favorite Fedex courier pulled up this morning to deliver our our 24″ iMac.
And it is was about time too.
I was getting a little tired of being asked, “Where is the computer, Dad?”
We were at the Apple Store on Labor Day. My wife plunked down the plasticÂ to take advantage of the “buy a new Mac, get an iPod Touch free. deal.”
My son wanted the high-end iMac with the better video card and they didn’t have it in stock.
So it had to be shipped. The iPod Touch which was part of the deal arrived yesterday Â coming all the way from Shanghai, China.
My guess is because we asked for engraving, the cost of labor made it cheaper Â to have someone in China do it and ship it here. Who knows?
The 24″ iMac is beautiful. It completely fills the void in the armoire.
My first order of business is to load Photoshop CS3 and see if it plays nice with Snow Leopard OS 10.6.
I was about to test it on my MacBook Pro. There’s no hurry to upgrade to 10.6 or Photoshop CS4.
SinceÂ Photoshop CS4 for Macs isn’t a 64-bit application yet, I decided to skip this upgrade.
