Last year a friend of mine called me that she had just picked up a new iMac at our Apple Store. I said, I'll come buy and help you get it going!! I was setting it up, enjoying the very top of the line model she got, opened Safari and saw the headlines on CNN that Steve had passed earlier that day, just about the same time she had bought it.
I spent the rest of the evening half setting it up and half watching the live coverage on TWiT.
I told her to think of it as a special Mac and even though she's one of these people who just always seem to have the weirdest, unexplainable problems pop up with her machines, in one year she hasn't had a single problem with it. She says it's her most favorite Mac ever.
