Apple has done it again – reduce me to a momentarily quivering pool of unadulterated techno-lust.
A year ago when I purchased my MacBook, I felt that it was only a matter of time before Apple designs a truly ultra-portable notebook computer that not only is THIN but also LIGHT. Is MacBook Air the answer? I don’t know, and I won’t be one to find out soon as I have no reason or excuse to purchase one in the near future. Yet, it certainly makes me want to stay put in the Apple Camp so that one day, when I have good reason to buy a new lap-top, I can get to make some future MacBeauty with Brains my own.
Watch the new ad that set my heart thumping:
It’s not just a pretty face either. It packs some serious new features. Check out the guided tour that got me infatuated:
If I want to be a MATERIAL GIRL…
I told Zibin long ago… “Dear, please don’t waste money buying me expensive jewellery I’ll never wear. If you really want to spend a few thousand bucks on me…”
Diamonds don’t set my heart racing. Neither do Coach or LV bags, Manolo Blahniks or other fashion apparel.
I am a geek at heart. Give me a camera for me to improve my photography skills. Or that fantastic MIELE washing machine and dryer that can wash even silk and satin without spoiling them (our clothes will last so much longer and we don’t need to buy new stuff as often!). Or a new computer that’s bigger and faster where I can photo edit and draw to my heart’s content.
There are many WANTS if you ask me what I’d like. But it’s not important if I ever get them, cos I already have what I need.
Besides, I believe it is good for my soul not to be able to get whatever I want, for often our hearts are attracted by objects that distract us from life’s true value and our own inner worth. In life, it is best to travel light. And if I haven’t learned how to be detached from material objects, then it is better that I do not possess too many of them. :)
