It's New Years Eve, and I find myself in a pretty tight spot.

About an hour ago, someone (who shall go unnamed such that they aren't publically shamed on my LJ) dropped my laptop on a hardwood floor and broke the screen to the point that it's no longer useable.

I use that laptop for all of my writing, including the revisions I have to turn in on Monday.

So....kind of in need of some advice.

It's a 12" G4 iBook that's about 4 1/2 years old - the "chiclet" kind - and was on the lower end even at the time since I'd be using it primarily for word processing. The screen would probably cost $450 to replace, assuming there aren't any other problems. If this hadn't happened I would probably aim to get at least another year out of it before looking for a new machine.

I could fix it. I could get a Netbook like [livejournal.com profile] emsariel's and "hackintosh" it and hope for full functionality on less fancy hardware. I could buy a new low-end Macbook. I could do nothing and just never be able to work away from home. Or maybe I could do something else I'm not even thinking of.

Thoughts? :(

(typing this on my suddenly essential iPod btw, so apologies for any typos)


ETA: Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd I am in the Cambridge Apple Store buying a Macbook?!??!?! So apparently that answers that question? (whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!?!?!??!)

ARG

So I FINALLY finished pencilling all 14 goddamn pages for my Chronin pitch. And then I FINALLY finished scanning them all in, and was in the process of putting the partial scans together over a template in Photoshop....

...when I realized that, after page 6, I started drawing everything at a drastically different aspect ratio.

...

OMFG.

I AM GOING TO BED.
