Well guys its been a long and wonderful journey. Me and my Macbook have been through thick and thin together. It survived being brought into greasy grimy printmaking studios, sculpture studios full of metal dust and other corrosive things. It somehow plowed through the creation of a 20 page proposal packet for Recollection which required Mac's Pages program to pretend it was the unhappy love child of Microsoft word and Illustrator. But now its time is at an end...
I received my macbook as a gift in 2008 for my sophmore year of college. That's right people my Macbook OS is 6 years old!
Its headphone jack stopped working about 2 years ago, it Sleep function kicked the bucket about a year and half ago, and 7 months ago we had to buy a new battery for it cuz 5.5 years is apparently how long Macbook lithium batteries work before they die.
And now my husband has diagnosed my computer with Network Card-itis. Meaning slowly but surely it's ability to connect to the internet is dying... So this is it people this is the last journal entry my Faithful Macbook will ever make because in just 11 days time he will be replaced with a new laptop that has double the memory and RAM speed. So wave goodbye to nice DA people Macbook, cuz the end in nye. Soon you shall be sold for probably less then $100 (aka the price of your partially used but still relatively new battery) to the nice people at Microcenter.
