Re: Permanent Greeting, part two

So im kinda new here, been on the forum and browsing around. I've been working with PeeCee's for almost 15 years and dabbled into the Apple world with iPods and such.

My wife got me my first MBP (17") for graduating college late 2011.

I love it, but have one gripe. Every morning I come into work and type on my Acer PC.... I have to squish my hands together, my Mac Keyboard so much more comfortable lol.

I'm sure by the end of 2012 you will be able to add a 13" MBA or a 15"MBPR, A Thunderbolt display for the Mini, and of course an iPhone 5.

It's official add the Thunderbolt display & 16GB of memory to the Mini.

LOL, same here. I used to get into it with them just for the argument of "whatever you can do I can do with my PC".

said by MichelR:

a couple of weeks ago I decided to expand my knowledge of computing platforms, and since the Mac can run Windows and Linux, I figured I wouldn't be "losing" anything anyway. I first used a Mac (Macintosh II) in 1989, then last in 1995 (Mac SE or something...)

I got one last year for the same reason, except that I did not even know you can run Windows inside the Mac when I bought it. I just figured I had my Win 7 laptop here in case I needed to do something with Windows. My first Mac was around the same time as yours. My school had all Apple IIC's and IIE's and I was using them taking Basic Programming and Pascal classes and running a Commodore 64 at home.

I came here for a lot of Mac help and that is exactly what I got. There is definitely some good help here .

Hey guys,

new here, though not new to DSLReports.com (been posting in Canadian forums and VoIP Tech Chat).

My first Apple product was a 40Gb back in 2005. In 2010 I replaced it with a 32Gb iPod Touch. Bought a 16Gb iPad 2 last summer.

After 28 years of Mac bashing (more out of fun torturing my Mac friends, really), a couple of weeks ago I decided to expand my knowledge of computing platforms, and since the Mac can run Windows and Linux, I figured I wouldn't be "losing" anything anyway. I first used a Mac (Macintosh II) in 1989, then last in 1995 (Mac SE or something...)

So anyway, last week I ordered a 27" iMac fully loaded (by that I mean that when you order from the Apple store, you set all the options such as processor, RAM, video... to the max selection). I also ordered a Thunderbolt display (I just can't work with only one monitor).

I'm currently still waiting for this stuff to be delivered, but I've already started lurking on this forum to see what you guys are saying so I can learn a bit while waiting for that beast to be delivered.

The display was shipped on Thursday but on Friday I got an e-mail from Apple telling me UPS had lost it in transit (how you lose something this big, I don't know). They're sending another one. Last time I checked the iMac was still being prepared. Hoping to get it for this coming long weekend.

Looking forward to asking you "newbie" questions. (I've owned computers since 1984, so it feels weird saying that).

Hello!!!

The name is Jonnie and since my wife surprised me this weekend with an iPad2 I thought I'd start exploring and make this forum one of my favorites.

Slowly downloading some apps, I'm on my third page as of his morning, and getting iPad versions of some things I have on my Acer Iona Tablet.

Guess I should have visited before since I've had an iPod (2nd gen) for a couple of years now.

Just crashing the party.

This spring I got an iPad2 for work and then an iPhone4S to replace my cell phone. I have been a PC user since 1989 (an XT) and stayed PC ever since. We have three PCs in the house and I use a PC at work exclusively. I have no intention of changing. All are tools. The iPhone and iPad have their use in certain niches and excel at certain tasks. The various PS computers also excel at certain tasks. I live with those limitations. The PC computers are superb creators of content for my work while the iPhone and the iPad are better consumers of content. Such is life.

Hello,

Recent convert here... I've owned an Iphone from day one, and finally decided to plop out the dough for a MacBook Air 13'. And Wow! I am impressed with this laptop. I will not go back. Well, other than what I have to use at work ~cough~ a Dell Probook 6450b

I'm a proud first time Mac owner of a 13.3" MacBook Pro since Thursday and I am very pleased thus far. The battery life is simply amazing as advertised. I plan on upgrading the RAM from 4 to 8 GB and the hard drive from 250 GB 5400 RPM to 750 GB 7200 RPM myself.

Cant say I am in the clan yet as my first ever Apple Device is a gift of an IPAD 3G/wifi currently in transit. Have only had my hands on an Ipad twice, and loved it, never had any other devices from there. Have used windows based pcs since late 90s and excited to dabble but know I will be lost lol In a good way.

Hi all. Eric here. Purchased my first Apple product in 20-something years back in December, 2009. A 32GB iPhone 3GS. I dabbled in Apple's back when the McIntosh hit the streets (God, I am old). I was a Commodore 64/128 and up user, programmer and repair/consultant dude in my spare time since about 1979 or so (I was 12). Honestly, my main reason for shunning Apple was the lack of applications. That seems to have been resolved since my last real try a long time ago.

I currently am all Windows as far as my computers go, but I am seriously considering looking at a MBP for my next purchase.

I'm really not unhappy with Windows (I dual boot Ubuntu also).

For the record, I never was an Apple basher. I always knew the quality and consistency of the hardware for Apple was better, I just never "got" the OS. I mean I understood it, but never preferred it.

So wish me luck as I prepare to really mix up a batch of Kool-Aid, probably around Christmas time. I LOVE my iPhone (even bought an iPod touch for my son). So I guess the Kool-Aid is trickling in already

Hi folks, Rocco here. I got my first MacBook last October. It was on sale at MicroCenter in Paterson, NJ. I was fed up with all the hype over Windows 6.1 (aka 7), so I jumped ship. The laptop was a steal at $800 +3.5% tax (Paterson is an economically depressed area, so Jersey cut their sales tax). Being the hacker that I am, the first two things that I did was to upgrade from 2MB RAM to 4, and upgrade the measly 160GB HDD to 500. It was so easy, it's not funny. I enjoyed that one until a couple of months ago, when I got an e-mail from MicroCenter. They opened a new store in Yonkers, and had a one day sale on the new 13" MBP. $300 off!!! I only had a day or two to find someone to buy my MB, so that I could buy the other one. It was quite easy.
Now I have the MBP, with the 500GB drive, (I took the 250 that came with it, and installed it in the MB) 4GB DDR3 RAM, and am quite impressed with its speed. Even though RAM prices are high these days, I want to upgrade so that I can allot more RAM to my VMs. VMWare has been a godsend for me here. You see, I am a network/PC tech, and have to support various versions of Windows for work. VMWare allows me to load any version (even DOS and WIN 3.1) so that I can be on the same page as my users. Now, if I have more RAM, I can run Windows 6.1 with more than 2MB, and perhaps it will run a little faster.

I cannot say enough about OSX. It's so much smoother, and easier to use than Windows. It's gotten to the point where when people ask me what new PC they should buy, I tell them to just buy a Mac. After all, how much are headaches worth?

I also love the build of the MBP. One piece of machined aluminum makes it sturdy, light, and quite the good looker.

You probably have seen me here in other forums, as DSLReports is one of my Internet hangouts.

I'd like to thank a friend of mine for getting me addicted. I wanted an iPhone, but it was not cost-effective for me to leave my current carrier. I went into CompUSA and somehow the darn thing took my debit card and ran to the register

I absolutely REFUSE to goto the Apple store, the iPad might beat me up to take my debit card LOL
