In a sort of mourning

Sadly I report the theft of my laptop–a 2005 powerbook pro. 🙁 I had just about all of the data backed up, but now I can’t really work at home and more than anything else, I miss my slim, silver mac. I hadn’t realized the extent to which I was really sort of living in that machine. I guess I really have become post-human. Score for Katherine Hayles.

The most tiresome additional irritant is that I need a laptop for my next Rotterdam trip in early January. Since we have renter’s insurance, I could replace it, but I’ve heard Apple will release a cool, new little 13″ aluminum-cased notebook with a flash drive instead of optical, at the MacWorld Expo in mid-January. This is exactly what I’ve been wanting–a smaller, lighter Mac. So I don’t want to buy something now, I want to wait.

If only I could find a Mac rental joint in Rotterdam.
