I've decided that I really want a MacBook Air for Christmas. They're so cool and light and so easy to type on. Your fingers just sort of glide over the keys. It's gorgeous. I'm going to need a laptop for college anyways, so why not just purchase one now and get it out of the way? I mean, I'd definitely keep it in tip-top shape so I wouldn't have to worry about updating it or anything. I just really need my own computer for schoolwork and such because my mom's laptop is just terribly slow. Plus my father works from home so he's constantly occupying our home computer. It makes it very difficult to get done what needs to get done for school, especially when I'm enrolled in two AP classes this semester and one of them is a rigorous writing course.
Now the only problem is deciding what size to purchase. 11" seems like a very small screen to me, even though that is the cheapest laptop Apple offers, which is $999. (Unfortunately, I think that I am going to have to be the one to pay for most of this purchase, so I'm going to need to bust my butt babysitting in the near future if I ever want this dream to come true.) So the next size up is 13", and I think that this would be the best size to spend my money on. The laptop that I'm on right now is 15" I think, so 13" would be quite manageable for me, I would imagine.
Basically, this piece of technology would be my Christmas and seventeenth birthday present combined. Rock on! *crossing my fingers*
