i heart apple... i heart vera bradley...

I know you are all probably sick of hearing me go on and on about how great the Apple Store is but here I go again. One recent Thursday afternoon my screen when black. I could hear that the computer was still on but nothing on the screen. I made an appointment at the Genius bar for 10:15 the next morning. They diagnosed the problem at the Genius Bar while I waited as the video/logic board. My computer is now 3.5 years old. That means that the extended warranty has expired. But apparently they have had problems with that part in these computers when they are between 3 and 4 years old. So they put in the new $948 part for FREE and it was ready to pick up the next morning before 10AM.

WOW.... what other brand of computer would even know this is a problem and would fix it for free and in under 24 hours? Once again I am in awe of Apple products and the store here at West Towne Mall.

And as long as I am talking about computer love I must show you my Vera Bradley computer bag. Each week I go to the Apple Store for a One to One training session with my really smart trainer Paul. Each time I pack up this bag it makes me happy. I must say I am not a fan of quilted things. Not even on my bed. BUT this bag has made me think differently. Underneath the quilted exterior is a hard case. My 17" MacBook Pro fits in exactly. One side has a zippered pocket for my pen, notes and any cables I need. The other side is non zippered pocket where I can slip my MacBook Air. One smart looking bag and I have all I need to head out for my class. I really recommend this bag. If you want you get the same one I have here.

(Thanks again Sarah!)


Note to Vera Bradley... I could really use a backpack computer bag to hold my MacBook Air when I ride my bike to a coffee shop to work. A cross between your black microfiber convertible tote and my red Beijo backpack purse would be lovely... thanks, Rae
