The first thing I woulda done to the Laptop is get rid of XP or Vista and install a flavour of Linux on it. I’m going Mac instead of PC as the Microsoft license would have gone to waste on this TED Fellow.

These comments helped change my mind too:

You Web AddiCT has chosen a PC,,,
but u can also install linux on Mac,
infact u can have 3 operating Systems runing at ONCE with the Mac, Namely OSX(Tiger), Vista , and Feisty, but u canรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขt do that with PC!!!!!!!!!!

Stii added his 2 cents

Yean dude, you donรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขt know what you are missing with a mac. Iรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขve been on it for a little while now and I cannot praise it enough. OS X is really a good OS. You pay for it, true, but you get what you pay for, namely quality, which is something that has been tainted by Microsoft. Ask if you can change your mind! (;

then eyedol put the final nail in the PC choice coffin with…

well i wonder why Your Web-Addict chose a PC,,, I guess you already have a PC, so why choose it again. Well may be youรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขve a reason but I see no reason why should own two PCs. Mac, is a great machine and shouldnรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขt be spared especially when having it for free.

Emailed TED and asked if it was possible to change my choice from PC to Mac and…

No problem, I’ll change it to a mac. And I won’t tell my good friend
Bill Gates about this. Just kidding (I don’t really know Bill Gates..)

Make mine a Mac! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€
