RIDding my old computer today.
Giving it to my parents, as part of a perfect matched set. (I gave them an iPad for Christmas.)
Giving it away makes me think a bit about technology – how fast it moves, how quickly we upgrade. Even though I had filled up the hard drive of this Mac, it was still only slightly over two years old.
It gives me pause to remind myself about my attitude about what I buy. I used to look for the absolute best deal. But lately, I’ve been looking for the purchase that will last the longest, so it doesn’t need to be replaced as soon.
Here’s to long-lasting acquisitions.
