It all started with a joke to my mum that i wanted a mac because it was more like Linux/Unix and thus free of Windows. Rid of the pest so to speak. The aim was a MacBook.
Early 2007 We bought 2 MacBook Pro’s. the 2.16Ghz model. Stood next to my several PC’s
It swiftly replaced my Acer Notebook. I was so impressed with OS X Tiger that i kinda fell in love with it immediately. The ease of use, pretty UI. Well you know how it is if you’ve got a mac.
Mid 2007 i apply for a job at the company where we bought the macs. And got the job. First and second tier phone support on all Apple products and related for customers of that company.
Late 2007 I buy an iPod Touch 8GB and take a PowerMac G4 from work to be my server. My 3Com base station is replaced by an Apple Airport Extreme.
Early 2008 Replaced my MacBook Pro for the then newly released model, the multitouch one. A few months later my main PC was replaced by the new Aluminium iMac 20″. Around this time i dismiss my PowerMac G4 to be replaced by an Ethernet NAS due to problems with OS X Leopard Server. The PowerMac goes to my mum so she can play her games of Myst.
Mid 2008 I aqcuire an iPhone 2G from a colleague at work, i decided i hated jailbreaking that same day but had to get along with it. This device replaces the iPod Touch.
Late 2008 Due to conflicts at my current job i move to another, i will be a Repair Technician. Repairing all applicable Apple products of roughly the last 10 years. My mum replaces her MacBook Pro of almost 2 years for the new Unibody design.
Early 2009 2 Mac mini’s enter the picture. They’re both 2nd hand. One will be my server, a 1.5Ghz core solo replacing the Ethernet NAS.
The other Mini, a 1.42Ghz G4, goes to my mum to replace the PowerMac G4.
Early-Mid 2009 I am now a Certified Mac OS X 10.5 Expert scoring 90 out of 100 in the exam. For fun i have bought an iBook Clamshell G3.
I’m finally approved for an iPhone 3G by T-Mobile and get one the week after.
Mid 2009 Replaced my now one year old MacBook Pro with the newer Unibody 13″ model as my ‘main’ laptop.
Late 2009 Replaced the iMac 20″ with an iMac 27″. The 20″ moved to be my secondary computer and the last PC was thrown out the house.
The wireless network is expanded with another Airport Extreme base station.
So after almost 3 years. No PC remains active in this house. We’ve switched from All PC to All Mac in less than 3 years. All our MP3 players have been replaced by iPods and iPhones and even our home network is powered by Apple.
And we love it!
