I've made the switch from PC to Mac, and I'm a fangirl now.
on July 22, 2013
So, I was concerned if I would have difficulty making the switch since I have used windows all my life but I was very much surprised and pleased that this was the easiest transition to a new laptop ever. Usually it takes days or weeks to get back on your feet when you switch to a new system, the macbook was not the case. Sure, there are muscle memory problems I will need to sort out as far as remembering that Control and Command are different and that in my case, I continually hit control when I mean command for simple shortcuts. Overall tho, the ease of use is amazing. The speed of this laptop is exceptional, and I know some people hate apples walled garden approach to things like their app store, but I find it nice. It took me about a day to get everything I need on here, my content transferred, my system and apps updated, and to get the hang of where things are and how to navigate.
I seriously love it.
I have not mastered gestures yet, but in the case of it being there it's a novel concept and will prove to be very useful.
The keyboard is excellent.
The hardware is responsive, silent, and pretty.
It doesn't get warm at all and it's light weight.
iPhoto is sweet, and the build in apps are all well done and easy to operate.
I'll update as I get more familiar with it, but I couldn't be happier with this choice.
