Invasion of the Macs

In January Lori's notebook was on it's last leg. It was a notebook I got about 6 years ago and it's been running 24/7 on the kitchen counter for 3+ years. So, I couldn't ignore my curiosity any longer and I talked her into getting our first Mac. We got her a Macbook Pro from the 'zon (of course) and even though I hadn't had much time to learn much about it, I could quickly see why everyone has been so geeked-up over Macs lately.

Well, after the family fighting over it for months, we decided to get a 2nd one! Actually, this one is "just" a Macbook. We've only had it a few days but I like to use it for sitting in front of the TV, sitting in bed, etc.

The most impressive thing about Macs, I believe, is the community. My Mac friends and of course all the online communities are all very eager to help you. I'm also very surprised at the selection of software available - much better than in years past certainly. The iLife software on these is amazing. I'm really excited about creating home movies, etc. Lastly, the battery life is very impressive.

I'm curious to see if my energy for it fades once the new wears off. Being the computer geek that I am, I'm very much enjoying learning about the new things and having a completely new, shiny operating system. Friends who have bought macs said they eventually find themselves "going to the mac first." I certainly won't call myself "switched" until I go to the mac by default.
