Mac love in begins
By christophersaul on Jun 19, 2008
Thanks to everyone who chipped in with tips on how to get to grips with my Mac.
I'm now starting to enjoy using it, although I still miss one button for page up and down and a proper delete key! Decent suspend and resume, as well as ease of use when in cramped conditions with the laptop on my knee are particularly welcome.
NeoOffice is working fine and I'm getting used to some of the hot keys. The heat issue doesn't seem to be much of an issue any more, even in Islamabad airport, where the AC was really struggling. Or maybe I was just boling hot myself anyway.
There are a couple of small things to work out, which I'm sure I'll manage by asking Mr Google (Google Desktop not indexing Thunderbird mails for example).
I'm sure the transition would have been easier if I hadn't been travelling that week and stuck with generally poor internet connections. It was still pretty painful though - Apple should really include a printed sheet with some common 'switching' tips.
Let's see how things progress. I'm particularly interested to see if it's as reliable as my old Tosh over the long term.
So far I have resisted the temptation to clean the thing down with wet wipes or encapsulate it in soft furnishings, like other colleagues whose names I will not mention.
