Bye-Bye PC.....Hello Mac Book......Thank You, Santa!

Apparently Santa heard me threatening to throw my PC out of the window. He brought me a shiny new Mac Book. It was a total surprise, and a great one at that. With school being the main reason I use a computer, my frustrations with my PC were increasing by the day. I cursed it often and not so secretly wished for a hammer to smash it into little bits. So, ding dong, my PC's dead. Thank you, Santa!

Happy Festivus one and all. Hope Santa was good to each and every one of you. Hope to see some of you GEWS this Friday!

Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Macs rock! I am writing this now from my beloved little ibook.

Santa was good to my son, as well this year-- he got an ibook too.

My friend Ron says about Macs-- "They're the computer that doesn't suck."

I want to kiss it! I was so sick of PC's and how difficult they are to use and how easily they get corrupted. Straight out of the box this thing is easy to use. I used to have a Mac and have missed having one ever since. I never ever want a PC ever again. Santa rocks!

Excellent score Tenacious S! Take a big bite out of that apple.

Hmmmm, I have never liked Macs. I first learned computers on PCs back in the days when I knew how to deal with all the various configuration files etc. Macs were always difficult because you could never manipulate things behind the scenes like you could with PCs. Someone once described the Mac as an airline where if you try to do anything, the flight attendant says "sit down, shut up and watch the movie." I still don't know how to work one of those. But I'm glad you like it.

It was nice how you blog-hopped around to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Right back at ya.

CP, personally I want to just watch the movie. The fact that the PC required me to know more than I wanted to was the problem. I am a point and click girl. I use this for three things, email, web surfing, and schoolwork. I want my machine to be simple and quick. My PC got all gunked up about every other day and was slower than molasses. Glad you know how to handle a PC. I never did and never wanted to learn. They scare me. Happy friendly little Mac Book is quiet and quick, just like I like 'em!

As a former PC gearhead, I am very happy for you. My 14 year old convinced me to buy an IMAC, and I just LOVE IT!

I was a little disgusted when I had to buy a new color laser printer that would communicate with a MAC; however, it is still worth it. Also a little miffed that my scanner won't talk to the MAC either.

Yet, the only computer on my home network that sees everyone else and can access their files is, yes, you guessed it, the IMAC.

The 14 year old also convinced me to buy the stock! What she buys I buy - on Wall Street.

Merry Belated Christmas!
