Tax refund

Ok, so I got my refund. It's been directly deposited into my PNC bank account. Now I'm starting to be tempted by all of the other things I could use the money on like guitars....amps.... I think I'll make this a picture entry

I really want a fender Jaguar or Jazzmaster.

I could also get a new amp,

Ok those pictures are probably too big.......

I can't decide whether to get a regular white macbook or the more pricey macbook pro. I'm going to get one through the refurbished section of the apple.com store. If I get the cheaper computer, I can use the $ difference to get some of the additional items that I will require such as a good external hard drive, the recording interface I need, and the RAM upgrade. It makes sense to get the cheaper laptop and get the other stuff with it, but I don't want the white macbook. It's partly because brad has it and I'm tired of it. I could get one of the Aluminum macbooks, but they don't have a firewire port, which I need for my recording interface. They only have two USB 2.0 ports. With the Macbook Pro, I'll have two USB 2.0 and two Firewire ports, at least with the one I was looking at. I'll also have a larger screen, and it won't be the annoying white. I'll order on Friday when my paycheck clears, and I'll also factor in availability to my decision, depending on what laptops are in the refurbished section at the time. I'll spend the week pondering this decision.

refurbished things scare me.

I can see that, but the computers are warrantied the same as new units. The refurbished Macbook Pros are so much cheaper. There's no way I could get one new straight up.
It appear the initial warranty is for a year and then before that runs out you can purchase the applecare extended warranty thing as well. I feel pretty safe about it. The refurbished Macs are probably more tested than the new ones.

Oh, well that's good. I know when I was looking to fix my old iPod the "warranty" wasn't that great. They said they would send me a new/refurbished iPod and it only had a 90 day warranty and after that I was on my own.

Needless to say, I got a new one for my bday instead :)
