Mac Pro for my birthday!

Don't you just hate it when Windows suddenly decides that you've done enough, and you get "an unexpected error" in the program you've been working with for an hour? The program closes, and of course it's been a few minutes since your last save. I hate that. Intensely. One can do a lot of things in Photoshop during a few minutes, I tell you, and it's a royal pain in the butt to have to save every second - just in case. Thank God, I'll soon be the owner of another preeeecious Mac!

The Specs:
• 2,93 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem"
• 8GB (4x2GB) 1066MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM
• ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5
• 1TB Serial ATA 3Gb/s 7200-rpm 32MB cache
• 18x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
• Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
• Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse
• Apple LED Cinema 24" Display

5 days ago, on July 15th, I got an e-mail from Øyvind. He was sitting right across the table so I thought it was a little weird, but on the other hand I'm quite used to getting e-mails from him with jokes, pictures, or some geeky article to read. Then I read the heading, and it said "happy birthday!" - but my birthday is still three weeks away? When I opened the e-mail I discovered that he had ordered the best, and possibly most expensive birthday gift ever, a Mac Pro! No, I'm not talking about makeup for a change, I'm talking about the gorgeous computer from Apple Inc.! I've been lemming a "real" Mac ever since I bought my black MacBook, but as already said, they are not cheap. When I got accepted into school this summer I knew that I had to buy me a stationary Mac sooner or later, because it's impossible to work with graphics on a computer like mine. My screen is kinda funky, displaying the colors differently depending on the angle you look at it from, and the whole computer is getting more and more outdated every day. Since Mac is also known to be the tool of the trade for us graphic designers, and as I'm planning on becoming a mighty good one too, I naturally need to have my tools ready. And now I do!

Thank you so much Øyvind, for what must be the best birthday present ever. I love you very much! It means a lot to me to have your support, and to know that you have faith in me. Heart
