Well, not really, but todays topic is: girls and computers.
I’ve always felt/knew that my PowerBook setup was awesome – both visually and performance wise, but for many of the people who drop by my room, it is their first experience with a Mac. Boys will start out by asking about the specs, and when told it has “only a GHz”, they soon lose interest. Fine with me, really, so I can keep it to myself 🙂
Girls, however, go crazy! No questions about RAM or drive size here, just pure excitement!
One girl who had a look yesterday called it a “sinnsykt deilig maskin” – roughly translated, a terribly beautiful machine. Couldn’t agree more. It’s sexy, it has a smooth keyboard, a lit-up Apple at the back, and this whole aluminum feeling. It’s small and thin. Not to mention the JBL Creature speakers, looking rather small (at least if the amp/sub is hidden, which I’m thinking of doing right now), but with a huge sound. And the green LEDs lighting up below them. Aww.
My conclusion: girls are born Apple fans. They are the people who care more about esthete than horse power. Kinda like myself. But of course, to me, my Mac is also a tool, and not just furnishing.
