Mac Probook has arrived!

In all it's glory...

Final cost about $50. You can't beat that. I'm giddy. It feels great to have a new computer. And not just any computer, this thing is my dream computer. A screaming fast Probook. This is actually a little faster than my G4 titanium tower that I do all of my work on. So I suspect this will quickly replace it. It will be so nice to sit and watch a movie and work from the living room instead of being upstairs in the guest room/office.

So for all of you skeptics out there, the proof is right in front of you. And if you were thinking, I'll wait to see if she gets her computer and THEN I'll sign up... sad news, the deal is over. It ended a couple of weeks ago. However, there are a number of other deals for PC laptops and 42" plasmas, etc. I'll post those links when I have some more time. Currently I have two monkeys jumping all around me!

Disclosure: While the final cost of $50 is correct in terms of cash outlay, you should also consider the income tax consequences of participating in these deals. The promotions company, NuiTech, issues an IRS form 1099 for the value of each "gift" that they ship. While it appears that our 1099 might be sent to a non-existent address, we've incurred a tax liability for some percentage of the retail price of a MacBook Pro.
