My “real” christmas present this year…

My “real” christmas present for myself this year is my MacBook, which I paid off today.

A good friend of mine returned a favor that I did him early in the year and sold me his barely-used white 2Ghz MacBook (60G, 1.5G RAM, SuperDrive, AppleCare, etc) four months ago for a lot less than he could have sold it to someone else for, and under the same terms in place when I sold him my iMac G5 back in January (“pay what you can, when you can”).

I sent him the final payment today, got a bill of sale, and now I can feel like the awesome little system is actually mine. 🙂
