Dude, I’m getting a Mac
Well, after all the teeth-gnashing and hand-wringing, Otis Inc. is getting a Mac–a 17″ MacBook Pro, to be specific. As most of you predicted, after diddling with my cousin’s MacBook for a bit, I was hooked. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact imessages kept popping up, but I quickly learnt you can turn off imessage on mac so that wasn’t an issue. Moreover, all my VPN concerns were allayed within five minutes. And, so thanks to you (and especially one particular “you” who made the decision even easier), I’m expecting the slow boat from China to bring my MacBook by the end of this week.
Now comes the part where I have to figure out what I need; how to transfer all my music, email, and such over to the new machine; and what Mac programs work better than the PC programs.
You all were such a big help the first time, take a look at the stuff I use on a regular basis and tell me if I’m going to find myself wanting a replacement, if I will be able to find the same program for Mac, or if there is a better version out there that I should use. Also, if there is anything else you think I should know in the run-up to the big day or a must-have program, let me know.
