Patrick sad at the price…

Patrick has saved up $700. He was hoping that a new iBook would come out from Apple, but that didn’t happen. Now he has his eyes on a new MacBook (he hates the name, by the way).

Dang, how does a 12-year-old kid save up $700? I remember in high school working all summer to buy a $400 camera. Money isn’t worth what it used to be. Although the cool computers continue hanging around the $2,000 price level.

I hear I might have a new Lenovo Tablet soon. I’m going to tempt him with that. It’s lighter and would make a lot more sense for someone going to school. Personally I’m scared of him having such an expensive laptop, though.

For myself I’m intrigued by the new MacBook cause it looks like it’ll run both Windows and OSX. Let’s see. New MacBook? Or HDTV? Nah, sorry, HDTV wins. 😉

Oh, and did I mention that Patrick really doesn’t like the name? Oh, Patrick, no biggie, just cover it up with a sticker and everything will be fine. I have a selection here for you. Let’s see, I have Technorati stickers. I have one of the very rare Mozilla.org stickers, and I have some Blogger stickers. I just realized we need a Channel 9 sticker!

Update: Tristan Louis has drawn up some comparison charts of the new MacBook compared to the old PowerBooks as well as to a PC model.
