My wife loved Acer because they were cheap. After the second black screen of death, I finally convinced her to go to an Apple. It really works better for what she needs it for and does much better with balancing her resource draining programs without significant performance loss. Of course, Apple isn't cheap, but to me, the price is worth the performance.
When you move from a $250 Acer to a $3000 Apple product you would expect the performance to be better.
As a distinguished sales professional who has been on the road selling his ass off for the man since 1997, I could not care less about my job this week. The Taints are coming to town for an epic showdown and I am taking December 20-Jan 2 off from work. This very well could be the hardest 4 days to get through in my professional career. How about the rest of you assclowns? How many poops do you give about real life this week?
I feel exactly the same as you.
I also was scheduled to have off from Friday afternoon Dec 20 until Jan 2nd.
