Changes afoot


After about nine years of using Microsoft Windows, today I placed an order for a Mac. I have looked into it quite extensively, Dan has a Mac i-book, and I had a long chat with Alvin at work, our graphic designer. Then I tootled along to the Apple store in Kingston, and (although I know they want my money) they simply couldn't have been more helpful. They know their stuff and were able to answer all my questions - it was a complete pleasure to spend the money. The guy who dealt with me spent over an hour demonstrating the product and what it does and how it all works. I was extremely impressed. The after sales service sounds fantastic, and after speaking to Tim (Jo's boyfriend who does loads of graphic work, photos etc) I felt I had made the right decision. It will be delivered on Friday, and I'm really looking forward to it arriving. See what Christian has to say about the i-mac here.

  1. You see, your big mistake here was asking graphics people about a mac. They all use them and know nothing else as in the past the graphics software was only available for a mac. They opinion is one sided.

    Seriously, an iMac is OK but don't try to upgrade it as if it is even possible it will cost you a fortune and don't think it is any better than a Windows PC because it isn't. They still crash no matter what Apple geeks tell you.

    Oh yes, and where the bloody hell is their right click!!!! And where are their keyboard shortcuts!!!!

    Enjoy your new computer. :-) At least you can run Windows on them these days!!
