Well, lookee what I found sitting on the dining room table when I got home tonight:
Yes, that photo is of The Prof's new, yet-to-be-named 24" iMac. He bought it with his educational discount that runs out tomorrow, his last day as an official professor (though he'll still remain one for the sake of this blog.) I haven't had a chance to check the machine out yet, but I'll admit...I'm a bit envious. I almost purchased a MacBook Pro a few weeks ago, mostly to take advantage of an insane deal that Apple was offering on the Adobe Creative Suite 3 ($349 with purchase of a new computer), but I chickened out.
Those rumored new notebooks better make my heart sing, is all I'll say.
