A new Mac is a thing of joy.
The awful new laptop lasted all of 48 hours.
By Saturday evening, even my very patient, play by the rules, no drastic steps, etc. husband had had enough.
"It's crap - lets take it back tomorrow."
So back to Best Buy we went, and the Geek Squad - who has to check out returned computers to make sure that they haven't been trashed before they are accepted for return - confirmed what we knew: the hardware and the software were bad.
"Congratulations!" said our techie "You guys won the bad product tri-fecta. Actually, that's a little Geek Squad humor." According to him, one in every 1,500 computers have it all going on like ours.
From "Best Buy" we hiked over to the Apple Store, where we were introduced to Abby, and Abby lead us to the machine that we would buy.
After an hour of question and answer, our heads hurt, our wallets were lighter, but we were excited about the purchase.
The joy has returned over a new computer!
