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.
