With the two of us going to Georgia this summer for a research internship, Stephanie will be doing some courses through BYU's independent study program. Even now during the semester, it would be nice to have a computer of our own, but during the summer is will be a necessity. The fact that we got a pretty fat tax return this March didn't hurt, either!
A day or two after we made the initial purchase, I received a phone call from Zion's Bank regarding "some recent account activity." A bit nervous, I returned their call to see what the problem was. They informed me that a hold had been placed on our account due to some abnormal activity with Apple Computers. Relieved, I confirmed the validity of the purchases and they rescinded the hold on our account. Hey, at least Zion's Bank hasn't forgotten who keeps them in business!
