The time has come for a Macbook Pro

Having endured years of stupidly designed and pretty ugly laptops, I finally decided to opt for a Mac Pro. I am thinking of something black, shining and sexy. Just like an African Queen. Presently I use a HP NC6120 with 1Gig of memory but it is so ugly it makes me feel like puking. And the Windows XP Pro on it makes me feel like crying when it’s time to act up.
Hmmm, a Macbook Pro? Where do I get that I Nigeria? Heard one could get one at PC Outlet at The Palms but am sure they probably gonna rob me blind. And my experience in bringing in foreign gears, as far as warranty is concerned, has been very far from pleasant. I once sacrificed a HP NX9500 (when it was pretty expensive and hip) because it didn’t come with an international warranty.

This would be an expensive treat for me, but don’t I deserve it?

But first thing first, lemmie go raise the dough….
