Just wanted to introduce you all to the newest member of our family.  I cannot tell you enough how in love with this thing I am.  Let me tell the tale of how it all began...

So about 4 days ago, our old computer began to give me trouble with sending pictures via email.  It was taking FOREVER. Then I got the blue screen of terror. You know when the DOS font comes on you're in trouble. (So I'm told)  This is when I knew the dreaded time was coming. When we would have to shell out a fortune to get ourselves up to date with technology.  Well after a series of events, and tech support from our personal 'geek squad' (aka: George :), we finally bit the bullet and walked our hynies into the mecca of all techno-stores- Fry's.  Usually this place is the LAST place I ever want to be, but for some reason today I was pumped.  Here is the exact conversation we had with the sales guy:
(We will call him Bob)
Bob: Can I help you with something?
Us: Yes we are interested in an iMac.
Bob: Ok, here they are. What size would you like, 20 or 24 inch?
Us: Umm.. what's the difference?
Bob:  Just the monitor size and price.  They all come standard with Blah, Blah, Blah.
Us: Ok, we'll take the 20 inch.
Bob: Ok, let me go get it for you.
(Comes back with our new baby, a printer and Microsoft Office program that we also needed.)
Bob: Anything else I can get for you?
Us: I think that will do it.  Thank you for your help.

It was literally that easy.  And it's been that easy since. We literally plugged this thing in, and everything else has just done itself.  I cannot tell you enough how much I love this thing.  I am not really a computer person, and I have been able to figure things out!! And Matt's even at work today! So I just want to say thanks to my old computer for dying, and George for the awesome tech support. Without you, I wouldn't have had such bliss...

All I ask is that I get a chance to drool over it soon. Not on it though. I'll grab one of Blake's wipies before I drool! LOL

Very cool! I am glad you are happy with it.

I hope you were able to salvage stuff from the old comp before it died completely (esp. pics!!!)
