So, for everyone out there that is in the market for a new computer and is a student, you should take a look at the Apple offerings. I ordered my new computer unaware of a new promotion they started where you buy a computer and get a free iPod Touch. Anyway, so I called them up and asked if I could get in on the deal… what do you know I could, and did.
As a side note, this was my first experience dealing with apples customer service and they were totally helpful. The guy set everything up for me and made the necessary changes. I couldn’t imagine anything easier.
Anyway, I now have the touch and have put some of my music and a couple of videos on it. I have to say that it is pretty damn cool. The music sounds good, movie play great, the user interface is incredible. It is just a really slick piece of equipment.
I have not yet been able to get it to work on my network at home, however it does work just fine at the KBC and on Michigan Tech’s campus network. I’m not that much of a computer guy so I don’t really know what I need to change.
After playing with it for a day or so now… I have to say that I would have never bought anything like this on my own. I just don’t see myself surfing the internet, or watching movies on it, and there are music players out there that are probably just as good… like my old iPod mini. Maybe I’m wrong and in a couple of months you won’t be able to see me without it. However, I don’t think that’s going to happen. It is cool though… really cool.
