Sitting next to me on the table, her power light breathing quietly in the way that Macs do, is my shiny new black MacBook — my present from D, who obviously knows very, very well how to make me happy.
She is a thing of beauty, this MacBook, and a few light-years ahead of the slightly-ailing 2001 Dell laptop I’m using at the moment. Tomorrow I’ll have time to get her all set up properly (I’ve only got the wireless configured at the moment) and perhaps then she’ll reveal her name.
There are four computers on our dining room table at the moment (plus a stray tiara, a strange little screwdriver, and some Kleenex because we are all still sick). More computers than people — geek.family.
