Mac v. PC

When my computer died a quick painful death at the beginning of the summer, I decided to explore the Mac v. PC debate. You'd think I would have been asking about politics or something, because people were passionate about their decision. I was actually told, "You're too smart for a Mac" Ha ha. While I'm flattered at that compliment, I did eventually decide that while more expensive, a Mac would be a better fit for me than a PC. I do like to edit photography and the graphics on a Mac are just better. The main complaint I had about my PC was it's propensity to get malware and viruses. Macs certainly do better at this as well. And I liked the idea of my computer being a work horse and lasting a while.

So after my husband worked hard all summer and I got a new job, the day came to buy my new computer. Let me tell you, the Apple store definitely makes you feel like you're special. I was a fan of their associates helping me with my decision and setting up my new Mac.

The transition is going well although I'm having to learn many new things. I played around with the tracepad last night to figure out what settings would work the best for me. It's nice to have the freedom to do that. The scrolling on the new Macs is also amazing. I also have been trying to figure out my old PC shortcuts and how they translate to Mac. And of course I've been moving files and programs to my Mac.

While I'm only a few days into my purchase, I definitely like my decision. I hopefully will be able to blog more now that I have my own laptop.

Now it's time for me to do some spray painting! Happy Saturday!
