Mac-ing it up
Please excuse my absence, as I am spending 90% of my time right now trying to figure out how to use my new Macbook Air. :may17 The migration, the set-up, etc. It shouldn’t be too awful, since I’ve been using an iMac desktop for more than a year now, but still… I’ve got to get everything synced & learn how to access the stuff I need on a daily basis.
And then, of course, I need to bling this baby up! :may21
Would you be surprised (yeah, not at all :mat27 ) to hear I bought some decals for my new Macbook even before I bought the thing? But I knew I needed a new laptop, knew it would most likely be a Macbook, & knew I’d have a use for the decals sooner or later.
This is one of them…
But there are about six gazillion more that I want. Too many cute ones out there, let me tell you! I may have to change them like jewelry, or hope they wear out quickly so I can upgrade over & over. :may15

LOL I doubt I’ll spend much (if any) time playing Garage Band. I’m more worried about making sure all my documents are in Word, all my e-mails are in Mail, etc.
And also getting used to the wee small screen & keyboard. I feel like a giant. :may39

How much different is mac than a windows based pc? Really different?

Pretty different. The good news is that I already learned the rough stuff last year when I had to replace my desktop PC with a Mac. But I’m so used to the old PC laptop that it’s taking some time to acclimate to this one.
What are some of the major differences between a PC & Mac…? Um…Macs are more visually based, so everything’s big & pretty & colorful. I like that. :mat27 They also run with a touchpad over a mouse; that takes some getting used to. :may30 The Mail program is totally different from what I was used to; that was kind of rough. And I had to change the browsers I used in order to get things to work the way I wanted to. I never liked Internet Explorer to begin with, but I started using Safari when I switched to the Mac, so that was new.
All of that being said, I REALLY like my Mac. I don’t think I’d go back to a PC now unless I absolutely had to for some reason. :may36
