It takes a lot of sexy to make me lust for a computer.
Now, lusting after the flesh and blood, well, you know about that. And lusting after certain inanimate or mechanical objects, sure. I mean, look at my obsession with skull rings, or something like the car from Supernatural.
But computers – well, you know, I’ve never owned a computer. I have one, but it’s a tool for work and pleasure, it belongs to my employer, and that’s fine. I’ve always gotten by with what I can scrounge from work.
For the first time ever, I looked at this machine and said to myself (Self, I said), I want that.
The new Apple MacBook Pro:
This is the outcome of the super secret product I couldn’t talk about last summer. This is what my team have been working on – the intel based macs – since April. And it’s cool to see it come out, and even cooler to think, this thing we make, it’s good and I want it.

Now I’m in trouble… bitch is my CEO will get it on the company dime… not me!
and skull rings….
we have so much in common.
Yup…yupyupyup…once I read about the MacBook on MacCentral’s live updates, I ALMOST forgave Steve for not streaming the keynote.
Metis, I feel for ya…I’m stuck working for a PC-centric technology director that’ll have snowball fights on the ninth ring before he buys me another Mac! 🙁
(clinging desparately to his 12′ PowerBook)
As someone who has been on DOS and then Win computers since the early early days (8080 was my first), I’ve often … i won’t say wanted a mac, but I’ve certainly looked at them.
Now this one? I want. WANT… like I want sex like I want a fine wine or a really good vodka like I want really excellent music like I want a gorgeous house and a really nice car like I want to win the lottery, I want this machine.
You have a hit m’dear.
I forgot to ask–what’s the battery life like?
chelsea, I think you’re right. We just need to get a zip code in common as well.
DN, some day you’ll have yourself a real computer. I’m a Unix guy all the way and OSX and and Apple Powerbook made me a convert.
Spck, it actually doesn’t use a battery. It is powered by lust. Which is another way of saying, I have no idea, we’ll soon see. It ships next month. Which doesn’t mean I’ll get one, since I’m in line behind a whole lot of directors and managers unless I wanna plunk down the cash.
All Apple computers are powered by lust. That’s why so many sex bloggers use them.
Sigh…I overcame my continuing lust affair with Apples about half a year ago and went back for more…got a G4 powerbook then. If I’d only held out longer, it could have been so much better…
(but it’s still pretty damn good. love my powerbook. caressing it right now.)
