I have converted

I have undergone a conversion ... a technological one. I have taken the plunge and this little beauty is now sitting on my desk ...
Yes, today I joined the ranks of Mac owners. I am still at the dipping a toe in stage and keep pressing the wrong buttons - not helped by suffering from cotton-wool brain as Little Cherub and I are both under par with some late winter nasty - but I think I am going to like it.

There were just too many people in this house wanting to use one laptop, and I'm afraid the laptop just can't take the strain. One died while under warranty last year, and our current one is about to be returned for repair or replacement (again!) because the screen casing cracked through after nine months and we can no longer close the lid or make anything other than minor adjustments to the screen angle. I'm hoping that now we are a two computer family (or will be once the laptop is back in the land of the living) we will have the best of both worlds - laptop flexibility and desktop durability.

My techie minded daughters are having a field day with the Mac. They were making movies within an hour of its arrival. Me? I'm still fumbling! All those years of Windows take a bit of unlearning.

Wow. Congrats. We need to make a change, and I've been toying with the idea of switching to MAC, but I'd have the same problems as you! Keep us posted on how the transition goes.

My husband replaced his PC with a Mac a couple of months ago and has no regrets. He really likes it.

Hope you enjoy yours!

Oops. Sorry for the double comment.

Oh, nifty!
My daughter bought herself probably the same iMac you did.
I was kinda fumbly on it too. I have reasons...sigh.. for needing a PC or else I'd get an iMAc too :-)

I switched to a MAC back in August (so 7 months ago now) and I still do not like it!
