Apparently settling down with my new Mac
By christophersaul on Jun 09, 2008
Getting to grips with my Mac a bit better this evening.
Some gripes still -
I don't like all these keyboard shortcuts I have to use and the position of the Apple key and not being able to use ctrl instead. It doesn't suit my hands, which are used to doing things differently as opposed to thinking different.
The mouse seems to slow down when moving over links. I also find highlighting things frustrating.
Still hating the lack of a del key - fn delete doesn't cut it. Same goes with the page up and down keys and shortcuts.
It doesn't really seem much faster than my four year old Toshiba, which surprises me considering it has a processor that's so much quicker. Maybe the tasks I'm doing are more disk bound than anything else - launching apps for example. That said, it does seem slower when multiple apps are open and I'm switching from one app to the next, something which has nothing to do with disk speed.
Doubtless I'll switch my old laptop on over the weekend to make sure I've copied everything across and find myself railing at the slow old thing and irritating XP it runs.
