What I May Do with my Free $100

I've been considering what to do with my "free" $100 from Apple. My list thus far:

  • Renew my .Mac subscription.
  • Get that Apple Bluetooth headset thingy.
  • Get $100 in iTMS gift certificates
  • Put it towards a new laptop to replace the aging 12" PowerBook.
  • Sell it to someone for $95.
  • Get an iPod Shuffle or Nano for Carey when she works out.
  • Leopard? I doubt I can wait that long.

Option 1 is leading currently.

My final (I think) word on the whole $100 deal is that I'm reminded of a quote: "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission." Americans love apologies.

  1. Waiting for Leopard will take some self discipline, but I think that is what I will try to do. It will be nice to get it right away with minimal money down.

    Also, if they offer the EDU discount, I may have some left over. I picked up Tiger a few years ago for something like $67.

    Educational discounts are about the only good thing to come out of being in college for a long time with no idea what one wants to do.

  2. If I can get away with it, I'm buying a refurb'd APEx card for $29 and Leopard with the edu discount for $69. That also gives me free shipping. 😀
