The Macbook Pro sold today at a healthy profit (all to go on a rather large credit card bill!). Another one I bought on the internet (as faulty) arrived in the mail yesterday. That one is now fixed, has a better screen and will be listed online tonight.
For every smash, there can also be a resurrection. I am sure there is a spiritual parallel in there somewhere!
Now all I have to do is spend less on the credit card :(
