Mac vs. PC

I learned a lot as a result of yesterday's post.  **Blushing**  I didn't realize I was naive until I clicked on a link or two and found myself wondering, "What do you do with THAT?"  There are rabbits and dolphins and a lot of other devices I never knew existed.  Someone out there in the Internet world with a sex toy business is actually sending me a gift basket of toys.  Thank you very much – you know who you are!  In any case, I'm sure we'll come back to sex related topics sometime soon, but for today I'm onto a slightly less controversial subject.  Although for some of you, this may still be controversial?

Briefcase surprised me, very generously, on my birthday with the new MacBook.  Have you seen it?  It's very cool.  I was thrilled.  My old laptop was having ongoing problems and had been in for work twice in the last six months.  (Remember my experience with Masul?)  Macs aren't susceptible to viruses and/or spyware.  Macs are supposed to be "better" for working with photos and music.  I was very excited by my new laptop and couldn't wait to learn how to use it.

This is what I've noticed so far.  My Macbook is much faster.  The graphics and sound quality are way better on the Mac than on my old laptop (which is a 3 year old HP Pavilion).  Working on a Mac is very different than working on a pc.  I imagine it is much easier to learn to work a Mac if you are starting off and have no, or very little, computer experience.  If you've lived and worked in the pc world for *ahem* a few years, the transition is a little more difficult.

I'm taking the "One on One" classes offered by Apple.  I've only taken one so far.  I plan to take full advantage of this program because I really want to get the most out of my computer.  Hot Apple Employee was very helpful in my first session.  I had figured out a lot of the basics myself, but I had a lot of random, scattered, questions too and he answered them all.

I've also learned I'm not a very patient person.  I want to know how to do everything right now this very minute.  The One on One program includes a rule stating you may not schedule classes more frequently than every seven days.  I want to take classes everyday until I am as proficient as any Apple employee.  I think it has something to do with my perfectionist nature.  (Which by the way, only applies to certain areas of my life and is completely absent in others!)

Apple has a "data transfer" service to move all your information from your old computer to your new one.  I have a problem, however.  I have some things on our home desktop pc.  I have some stuff on my old laptop.  I've had no time to drag all three computers down to our local Apple store to get data transferred.  Also, did I mention you have to leave the computers down there for two days?

RC does homework on our desktop every night.  I don't feel I can take that computer away from him until there's a break from school for a few days.  I also know my own fingers are permanently attached to my keyboard.  Give up all computers for two days?  Nah … we just can't do it.  Instead I keep jumping from computer to computer depending on what I want to work on.  

Photos and music are primarily on our desktop.  All my saved bookmarks (which includes a zillion blogs) are on my old laptop.  I haven't had a spare moment to attempt moving data on my own.  (Which I just might screw up anyway because … it would be just like me to do that!)  Eventually I know I'll get everything on to my Mac, but for the time being I'm playing musical computers.

Have any of you made the transition from pc to Mac?  How long did it take for you to feel proficient on your Mac?  What features do you like best?  If you are a pc user, do you want to, or would you ever consider, switching to Mac?  I'm just curious as to your thoughts.  I've noticed our Apple store is always ridiculously packed with people.  Is there a Mac revolution going on?

    Congrats on your Mac! I’m a PC user at home, but I use Macs at work all the time. Do you have an external USB drive? You can create a disk image of your desktop computer and save it to your external – OR, you could just copy your ‘My Documents’ directory to a thumb drive, if it’s big enough. Almost everything should be stored in the ‘My Documents’ folders by user name.
    Heh. Hope this helps…

    I am a Mac converts and hate working on windows now. It is just 100% pants. Macs rule. When i shifted my data from pc to mac I used an external harddrive with usb then firewire connection, but didnt move all over. Left a lot on the external harddrive as dead easy to plug in and get stuff off and prevents me using up all my internal harddrive, which would slow shit down on my PC. I did fill my mac harddrive up to boiling point and it still coped but gave me a warning saying the drive was 99.9% full. Then I moved stuff. Stored way too many high def photos!
    I think the portable would work for you, but the desktop are pretty portable too… http://www.lacie.com/products/range.htm?id=10036

    I, too, juggle between three computers. However, none of them are Macs. I’m scared of the Mac. The change sends shivers down my spine. I’ve seen the Mac and it does look way cooler and I’ve heard so many good things (advantages) about the Mac. I just can’t bring myself to tackle learning a whole new system.
    Hell, Photoshop alone is kicking my A$$.

    … Okay, I finished. Somehow.
    Anyway, is there a Mac revolution? Yes and no. I don’t think Macs will beat out PCs (not anytime soon, anyway) given the HUGE margins PCs have right now, and the fact that there’s just such a wide selection from a number of brands, but I DO think Apple is making a concerted effort to entice new users to their system, mainly via things you noted: better graphics (even relative to their own previous models — this is for gamers), less susceptibility to viruses (always been that way), BEAUTIFUL FREAKING DESIGN (more and more so every day)…
    As someone who’s always been around both growing up, I can appreciate each system for its benefits but realize that each has its downsides too (as I think I told you before).
    That said, I still crave a new Macbook like nobody’s business! Congrats on getting one. I hope you enjoy it — for me too! Because it’ll be a while before I actually get one.
    And as other commenters have stated, using an external hard drive or a thumb drive should be fine for backing up/transferring any files you need. My advice, if you don’t want to wait, would be to tackle one thing a day (music, photos, documents, etc.) and DO NOT ERASE ANYTHING until you’ve had it all moved over for a couple weeks. (Or ever, if you’re not doing anything special with your old computer/s…) Is Son not able to help you with this?

    SO JEALOUS.

    I switched to a Mac this year too. I really like it, but still struggle with certain things. One thing I am going to get now that I didn’t when we purchased is Word for Mac. There are some files that just won’t open with Mac. I also think you’re smart to do One on One, which I haven’t done, as like you I have little questions that pop up.
    We still have our old PC and I only use it as a last resort. The speed and clarity are so amazing on the Mac.
    Enjoy.

    My boss, a retired Microsoft software engineer, has a Mac.
    I think Vista is going to push many, many people over the edge. I’ve been a PC user for many years. I’m hanging on to XP as long as I can, but when the switch to Vista becomes inevitable, I may jump ship.

    I haven’t used a PC since 1997 when I met Hubby… He converted me to Macs way back then and I will never go back to a PC. We upgrade both of our Macs about every 2 years. I enjoy the 20″ and he uses the 24″ for his Labview programming for work. Mine is filled with photos, iweb pages, a bazillion songs…. love all the itunes, iphoto, imovie and idvd since they are all integrated and work together.. I do lots of home videos to share with family and on YouTube as well. If I can help you with any of those please let me know. They will have to pry my iMac from my cold cold fingers when I die… lmao Good luck with yours and welcome to the Apple family of computers and gadgets.
    P.S. See the posting on my blog… the Obama family is a Mac family!!
    High five on the mac.

    ALSO….. Macs can get viruses… Mine took on a Trojanhorse a month ago or so and I had to purchase software to get rid of it… It was hidden in a music video I downloaded from some website. I can direct you to the site that has the software to download if you are ever interested… I now run it every morning to get rid of anything that may slip through over the internet to my Mac. That is only the second virus/trojan horse I have had since 1997… the other one got me in the form of an e-mail virus. Just an FYI…..

    the external drive is the way to go. You can then use that external as your back up for time machine which you must must must do! it is seamless and the easiest backup system EVER.

    I switched over to macs when i was in college, and I would never go back.
    I love all things about it. I like how when you can drag drop anything into the trash. and then when you empty the trash, it actually is an empty basket – which as i type this, seems like a weird thing to like, but its so satisfying.

    I want a basket of sex toys. What fun.
    I thought about getting a Mac, but when I went to the Apple store to have a look I was filled with fear. The price was scary. The single mouse button was scary. I couldn’t figure out how to work spell check. The keyboard was tiny.
    I’ve been using PCs for 22 years, I don’t think I can cope with the change now.

    i made the transition in ’98 (G4 desktop), and i got a MacBook two years ago. way better, but they’re only machines (i’ve got a few posts on my site when i’m singing the mac blues… when they crap out, they crap out.)
    but they’re still way better than a pc. just buy the extended warrenty.

    Be well, 24.

    Also… noticed that Tricia stated that the one button mouse for a Mac is scary…. well, then just plug in a two button mouse and change the settings. Macs are smart enough that you can use either kind of mouse….

    we have always been Mac people, we have to have a few PC’s at the agency for programing, and my husband hates them. I think you will learn to love your Mac!!!

    I switch back and forth, but I never really got used to the Macbook I bought 2.5 years ago. I like the relative virus free world, but I do not find it is intuitive at all. No doubt that is because I have been corrupted by nearly 30 years of PC, but corrupted I am.
    The colour of my blog is much prettier in my PC internet explorer browser than mac safari browser

    Oh! The other thing I was going to say is that I think most PCs can be configured to work as well as any Mac, BUT out-of-the-box Macs generally work better than out-of-the-box PCs.

    Yep, I’m saving my money for a mac laptop, so I can be cool and blog from Starbucks and make cool movies and pics. Defo a mac. PC’s are just too much trouble.
