At the (enormous) risk of adding yet another MAC vs PC thread to this board (dont. seriously.) on Thursday night I finally made the switch (tm?). I picked up my shiny new MacBook from the Apple store in Manchester (man what an obnoxious irritating * the salesman was - typical mac user but I wont go into that) and I must say so far I'm rather enjoying it. I've not had much time to play with it cause I spent most of friday just moving stuff off my old laptop and then I went to Newcastle for the evening but it really is a lovely piece of kit. I managed to get it at a huge discount which was a major benefit as I'm not sure I could have talked myself into it otherwise (yeah you get loads of free software, it's cool, but I have the internet..) but I'm pretty pleased with the purchase.
I'll probably drop back in here over the coming days/weeks as I muddle my way through things. I'm already missing a lot of stuff my PC was doing for me but obviously it'll take a while to get everything set up and configured how I want it and also find replacement bits of software/etc (I've already got windows running in fusion and I'm hoping to add solaris and ubuntu to the mix aswell just for fun) so I'm giving it chance to wow me though it already has.
So come and join the party. Tell me what cool stuff I can now do which would otherwise take me weeks to discover.
