“Sold” in the meaning of “bought”?

I've read a tweet about iPhone 4S and this is what I saw:

Totally sold on the iPhone 4S - for the dual core CPU and dual antenna alone. I like fast things.

Can you guys give me an explanation about "sold on" and maybe some more usage.

  • @aedia: Yeah but unless people might google is "What does Sold On mean" – Tarik Oct 4 '11 at 20:35

To be sold on something means that you have been convinced of the merits of something (frequently that you've decided it's worth its cost, or is otherwise a worthwhile endeavor).

Some examples:

After losing five pounds this week, I'm sold on this new diet.

After seeing him play Hamlet, I'm sold on Bob as a dramatic actor.

Tim sold me on the Mac as a desktop PC.

I've been sold on running since I did my first 5k.
