One thing they don't tell you when you get a Mac is that you should allocate an additional 20% of your Mac budget for accessories. The first thing you'd notice about anything Apple is that these things are not designed with practicality in mind. You sneeze too hard and you might just scratch something on the Mac. Or the iPod.
Then there's the white (!) power supply and the white power cord.
Q: Why is the power cord and power supply for Apple computers white?
A: So they'd get dirty-looking faster. And since they are likely to be on the floor, you can enjoy little stress-attacks whenever someone walks by and accidentally steps on it while you pretend to act cool as if it doesn't matter.
Having said that, it's still one beautiful chunk of fragile technology. As the saying goes, "Once you go Mac, you can't.....stop rhyming."
