Going to the Dark Side

Today, Potts and I purchased a new laptop, our first PC, which we promptly named Lappy (it's the Madison or Ethan of computer names). And this purchase made me imagine the following dialogue:

Mac: Hi, I'm a Mac.
PC: And I'm a Toshiba.
Mac: Bwwahhahahahaha!! (cough) I mean... um, really?
PC: That was really mean, Mac.
Mac: Sorry, it's just that, wow, that's really lame, being a Toshiba and all. Sorry.
PC: I'm an affordable option for civil servants and graduate students, which is more than can be said for you.
Mac: But can you make pretty pictures? Cuz I can make pretty pictures. And I'm hip and stuff.
PC: Can you download audiobooks and movies from the library?
Mac: No. But who wants to do that? Probably only weirdlingers.
PC: Can you do Rhapsody?
PC: Well, can you?
PC: Because Rhapsody is the single greatest contribution to the human race since penicillin, you know.
Mac: Vista sucks!
PC: That may be so, but Mary is willing to overlook it because she can now play that James tape that melted in her car in 1999, like, on demand.
Mac: They loved me first. They'll come back.
PC: Maybe when they're rich.
Mac and PC: Bwahhhahahahaha!
Mac: Good one, Toshiba.

My laptop is also named Lappy.

I already believe that Lappy was a solid investment. The picture quality is great and it's so fast (two things that could NEVER be said for our circa 2001 iMac).

But Vista does really, really suck.
