My macs


In 1993 I started studying computer science. They had nextstations. I deleted windows 3.1 from my dads computer. When I started making some money, I bought a playstation. In 2000 I got my first regular job. I used the computer at work for things like taxes and some web browsing. When I was about to lose my job in 2003 due to the internet bubble, I bought a powerbook 12”. I used that at home for office purposes. At the end of 2006 I started working on my quran on it. In 2009 the U2 video came out and it turned out I couldn’t view it on my old powerbook. I bought a used core 2 due imac (the white model). It was fine.

In 2010 I started playing world of warcraft on it. The monitor had a problem for which there was a factory replacement program but I missed it. I bought a PC but didn’t really like it. In 2013 I got the 2012 27” imac. It broke in 2017 and I had enough money so I bought the 2017 27” 5k imac. About 1 1/2 years later the fans started to make more noise and I discovered it was thermal throttling down to 0,8 ghz which pissed me off.

Now it is 2020 and I want to get a normal computer. Not a PC, a mac. Not a mac mini. Not a mac pro. Just a regular mac ‘midi’. A regular computer from Apple. It does not exist.
