Shocked commuters gawp as woman brings iMac and keyboard onto train

A picture is worth a thousand words:

I do find the whole thing entertaining, but not too hard to see this happening. Could be she needed the larger screen or, perhaps, this might be the only computer to which she had access and a project deadline that forced her hand.

They had me at gawp.

    Not sure why “and keyboard” was included. Once she committed to the iMac the keyboard was a given.

  • Or maybe she was taking it to work to reside on her desk, or visa versa. It is probably not her standard commuting setup. No?

  • John David

    Is she bothering anyone? Is she inconveniencing anybody? Is she taking up an extra seat that someone else could sit on?

    The obvious answer is NO to all of the above.

    Exactly when was the point in time when so many people became just like Gladys Kravitz from Bewitched?

    Here’s a novel idea. Why doesn’t everybody mind their own Fu@*ing business!

      It’s more about generating gossipy headlines that’ll make bored office workers click out of curiosity.

      Chuckling at the idea of bringing an iMac on a train is just as harmless as bringing an iMac on a train. No need to be bothered by either.

  • Brandon

    OMG! Totally! Like, WTF! She is like, so stupid for bringing a desktop when she like, totally should have used a laptop!

    What’s thats? Her situation? Well…I don’t know…and I don’t care! I just want to take pictures to post to the internets so everyone can judge her! Crazy stupid woman…everybody look, she’s soooo crazy stupid!

      Chuckling at the idea of bringing an iMac on a train is just as harmless as bringing an iMac on a train. Why make a fuss about either?

  • The Cappy

    I guess she needs it for something important… but seeing that Google page makes me wonder.

  • The only thing that makes me gawp is that janky keyboard.

    • John Kordyback

      Extra points to Mr Shane for his use of the word ‘janky’.

  • Simon

    I can imagine doing this. Transporting it from one location to another, then realizing with glee that trains have outlets these days. Onlookers be damned.

  • John Kordyback

    Or she might just have a long train trip and was bringing her iMac from home to the office, or vice versa.

    But obviously, she needs a glomp.

    Only a 21.5″ without an extra display….nothing to see here…

  • David Stewart

    I saw someone bring an iMac to a Starbucks a few years ago. I got a good chuckle out of it.

  • LOL! I’ve done this. I was headed to the last MacWorld Expo in New York from Philly with a friend, 2003 I think. I was taking my dome iMac to my User Group’s booth. They were gonna show videos and slideshows, sign up new members, that sort of thing. My friend had a TiBook. We saw an outlet and it worked. So we figured since we had 90 min to kill we may as well play Quake with a crossover Ethernet cable. We got some looks, all right. Good times.
