Are you using a Mac?

This is my first time posting on a MacBook Pro. I borrowed it from someone in my house to give it a try. I’m normally a PC person (but I’m not always P.C.). I’ve found the few times I’ve used a Mac, it’s been an annoying experience. Sure, it looks nice, but anything different is, by definition, annoying.

Part of my reason for doing this is deciding if I like the interface. I’m toying with the idea of getting an iPad, but the lack of real keyboard or USB ports is turning me off, so far.

However, for writing a post using free wi-fi here at Barnes & Noble, it seems to be working just fine. If you use a Mac, you probably wonder what all of the hubbub is about, but if you moved over from a PC…you know.

So, which do you think is better and why…PC or Mac? If you write your own blog with one or the other (or even if you don’t), why do you prefer the one you use? Leave a comment…

  1. I love my Mac…and I used to be a support technician on PC’s. My biggest reason for switching back in 2005 was the number of viruses and worms and other mischievous programs I kept getting on my PC. Between on going battles with all the malware and subsequent round robin calls to Norton, Microsoft, MSN, and others, each blaming the others for the problems. All the virus protection, firewalls, etc. slowed my PC to a crawl.

    My Mac has solved all those problems.

    When I have had some minor problems one call to Apple is all it ever took to resolve the issue.

    I like the Mac interface but I am now used to it & you aren’t. I now get confused by Windows. AND I love the way everything works together so well. The iLife programs were a revelation when I 1st got my Mac. Garageband and iMovie made using audio and video drop-dead simple.

    I also like the ongoing education at the Apple Store (One-to-One).

    As to the iPad…I can’t comment…don’t have one.

    I’ll never go back to Windows.

  2. Michael,

    Thanks for the comment. I’m going to go ahead and use this MacBook for a month and see how I adapt. I still have a PC as my desktop, but I won’t avoid converting just on principle. The one issue I’ve had is always having to use a PC at work. I don’t relish the idea of having to become an expert at both. I’ll post more on this experiment as the month goes on.

    Rob
