Well. It was bound to happen sometime. Last week our beautiful little G4 was chugging along, merrily as ever, when - poof! - gone. Dead. Finito.
Just like that.
And it took four years of photographs and six days worth of downloaded music with it.
So now we have a new (new-old) iMac, the G5. I will miss the G4 - its cute round bottom, its happy disposition.
But the G5 looks promising. Sleek. Updated operating system. Adorable red dictionary/thesaurus. I think we shall be fast friends. I will try not to judge it too harshly.
(Or its new friend, External Hard Drive.)
