About Me

Hi. I"m living in the Northeast with my supportive hubby, 2 great girls and toddler son. I run a home based business around scrapbooking and rubber stamping and love everything about those crafts! I also work p/t as a Physician Assistant in Internal Medicine...back after a 10 year hiatus to take care of the kids--loving that, too!

M is for...Macbook Pro

I am an Apple convert!  Yes, I recently switched over from a desktop PC to my all time favorite gadget ever...a laptop Apple Macbook Pro.  I can't even tell you how much I love this thing.  Yes, there was a learning curve to master (and I am FAR from mastering it), but once you get used to the floating windows and all of the shortcuts, you are in computer heaven.  Add to the fact that I can grab my little jewel and take it anywhere in the house(thank God for wireless) and that I can store upwards of 15,000 pictures on my hard drive (to date) without any trouble whatsoever, and that I can create movies, videos, scrapbooks and more with the touch of a button (or in my case, the tap of a touchpad) and I am sold. AND...knock on wood...I don't even need virus protection.  Yes, I know, I should probably get virus protection, but I was clearly told by both a techie neighbor (who also happens to have an Apple friendly household) and the Apple service reps that the Apple operating system has very few problems, if any, with viruses.  It's been almost a year, and nothing I tell you...nothing at all driving me to frustration.  This is the total opposite to my previous PC that had issues with storing data, being vulnerable to viruses and adware, and as slow as a sloth on a sunny day.  I knew that Apple had a reputation for being good for those who did a lot of graphic type things with their computer (such as gaming and photo-editing), but I had no clue how good it would be.  I can have multiple floating windows open, play music, edit pictures and surf the web and this little workhorse doesn't even flinch!  And having an iPod means I can sync all my music, movies, podcasts and apps effortlessly.  Yes, this can be done on a PC, but it's so much better on an Apple ;-).  So today is the day that I dedicate to my Macbook Pro.  And if ever I should have trouble with it, Apple service is the bomb!!!  Trust me, I've had plenty of issues/questions/concerns since getting my computer last April and they have always been super helpful.  GO APPLE.  Now, if I can just get to iPhone 4 someday soon...

I have heard nothing but good things about Apple. I'm glad you are enjoying it so much!

I'm actually writing this on an apple in the library. First, I just sat here cause all the PC's were taken but this keyboard's just flying, and I love it so much that this is pretty much my place these days. I might even consider to take one home. (From the shop mind you, not from the library :) )

I would also love an Apple one day too. I didn't realize that the whole "syncing" thing was easier on a MAC. I do LOVE my iPhone 4. I seriously don't know what I did without it.
