Stupid Laptop...

Turmoil- a state of great commotion, confusion, or disturbance; tumult; agitation; disquiet.

The Walking Dictionary's Definition of the Day Award
goes to: slow computers that are badly advertised!

I was debating giving the Award to my own mind today; after all, it is currently in a state of great turmoil. But after a huge debate with myself, I decided to proudly present the award to the CAUSE of such disturbance: the stupid Mac laptop I am typing this on as we speak.

Alright, let me clear up the whole "badly advertised" thing. I honestly love the Mac vs. PC commercials. Especially those new Christmas ones. You know, where PC drops a snowman's head on a talking rabbit? No? Look it up on YouTube. Anyway, yeah, all the good stuff they say in those commercials is true, NORMALLY. But Apple conveniently forgets to mention all the bad stuff about its computers, like how there is no right clicker!!!!!! This bothers me to no end. How in the world am I supposed to copy and paste?

... Oh. Well, pressing those buttons is much harder than doing the clicking thing! And it isn't even like normal computers; you have to use the Apple button instead of Central! WHO WOULD KNOW THAT? It's NOT common sense! (If you currently have no idea what I am ranting about, just play some elevator music- this will all be over shortly.)

And now this: this laptop I am currently using is a total gyp. Oh, it LOOKS pretty, what with its fancy green cover and clean black keyboard; but once you turn it on, all the flashiness goes away the second you realize that it is the SLOWEST COMPUTER ON EARTH. I am not kidding! I have never, ever used a slower computer. A tortoise moves faster than this thing! We have a laptop at my house, not a Mac, that we call the Dinosaur, because it is so old and outdated and slow. But even the Dinosaur is faster than this! I have been online for over an hour, and I still have not checked my email, because this stupid thing DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO OPERATE COMCAST MESSAGE CENTER!!!

I am rather fed up at this point. Apple is so overrated. PC can have my business. I don't know about you crazy kiddos, but I prefer a computer that has a right clicker...oh yeah, and an actual operating service connection. But that's asking for too much these days, now, isn't it?

  1. The problem is not that it is a Mac; the problem is that it is set up as a loaner computer from Vanderbilt and it is not optimized for performance. So don't diss the Mac; diss the network :)
