Digital slut

Whenever I contemplate making a major purchase, it is invariably a geek device of some sort. It's been over three years since I bought a new Mac (my usual replacement interval), and I've been drooling over the G5s ever since they've been announced. Their power is overkill for my needs, but I don't care, I just want one, and I have the money, so I'm going to get one, damnit!

Originally I had planned to wait until I'd lost a certain amount of weight to make my next major purchases, but I've scrapped that idea because I don't want to obsess so much over the numbers on the scale. (Though I am glad I waited to buy my iPod until I lost 10 pounds, as the newer models came out right about then.) I also want to buy a new cell phone/PDA combo, but there aren't any models out right now that have the features I want. (Though I was tempted to buy the Palm Tungsten T2, I've read rumors that the T3 model is just around the corner, and there are hardly any Sprint-compatible Bluetooth phones out that I could use with it yet.)

So today I took a big breath and placed my order for my new G5!

1.8 GHz PowerPC 65
Bluetooth Module
SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW)
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
160GB Serial ATA - 7200RPM
Apple Cinema Display (20" flat planel)

Can't wait till it gets here!
