Loving the Mac
So a few days in and I am loving my new Mac. Things are just easy. I brought it with me to my second job in Jacksonville, Florida. This thing travels very well. Wireless networking is easier, faster and more reliable than it was on Windows XP or Vista. The battery is a good 4 hours and is small versus my jumbo battery on my HP that was 6 hours...7 on a good day. Turning this thing on is easy and it boots up to a useable Operating System in less than 30 seconds. Playing a DVD? Pop it in....and it plays. No 3rd party software to load or mess media player...it just plays. Using Windows inside of the Mac OS is also very easy. I am so happy that I would comfortably encourage my mother in law to get one when she is ready for her next computer....which should be soon as it's been a good 4 years or so. I also think the case of the laptop is sexy....all aluminum.
