Apple Store

I went to the Apple Store yesterday to pick up a new office computer for me. (I love the Apple Store).
The sales person helping works with youth at a Catholic church on the island. I was sharing with him how I felt like I converted more of my church members to Macs than to Christ. He had a good laugh at that one.

Then while he was running my credit card, I told him that my powerbook looks outdated compared to all the macpros out there, and how I felt the need to buy a new one. He stopped what he was doing, looked straight at me and said, “Does your powerbook work fine and do all the things you needed to do?” I looked at him sheepishly and said, “yes.” And he then he replied “problem solved.”

It was a nice reminder that I don’t always need newer stuff, especially if the old one is fine. Oh, and especially if I can’t afford it.

I have yet to set up the Mac mini on my office. But I am looking forward to playing around with it. Tee hee.

  1. Yeah, I’m struggling with the same thing about ‘upgrading’ from my Treo to an iPhone… especially when I’m preaching this Christmas about giving simpler, less-expensive gifts and giving to our Christmas offering that’s going 100% to missions. Guess it’s that whole practicing what we preach thing…

  2. I absolutely love this story! The cynic in me wants to say that that is probably just one cool employees attitude, but still it does make me a little bit proud to have a mac… which means that even then pride is rearing its ugly head. In the words of Charlie Brown “Good grief…”
