Other potential titles for this post: “I can haz Macbook”, “Macbook: Day 01” and “Macmacmacmacmac” (like in the “Mac” washing powder advert).
OK, so the gist of this post: I got a Macbook.
I’ve been researching laptop options for a while now (over a year) and have changed my mind several times as to what I thought the best option was for me. I have (clearly) settled on the Macbook. It’s a 13″ aliminium Macbook, the 2Ghz version.
After a few hours of software updates and general setup, I am loving the experience. Having worked on a PC for the majority of my computer using existance, the change is definitely a concious one. I have worked on Macs before though, so it was pretty seemless, in fact.
I love the whole culture behind the Mac. The array of applications available is vast and syncing your information across multiple devices is easy. Heck, the Macbook even recognised what colour my iPod Nano (free with the Macbook) is (it’s green, by the way).
All in all, my experience thus far has been a very pleasant one. I’m feeling more productive, relaxed and one with my productivity.
If you can recommend anything I should look into doing with my Macbook that may be beneficial (eg: backups, system optimisation, etc), I’d greatly appreciate it. I now entirely understand why people go Mac and stay with it.
