A week with my new MacBook

It's been just over week since I got my first proper Mac and I am surprised just how good it is. I say first proper Mac because the first one I had was a second hand Macintosh which I was given many years ago, it came with a carry case! and had a tendency to lock up which meant I didn't keep it for long.

Over the years I have been a strong supporter of Microsoft products, people always said Macs were easier to use or simpler but I didn't take much notice at the time; after using one for a bit I understand what these people meant, on a Mac almost everything is easier, something that would take multiple steps on a Windows machine only takes one on a Mac.

There are some significant differences that have taken me a while to get used to, the file structure is very different, and what I did find unusual at first is the fact that an entire program is contained within a single file and instillation simply involves dragging and dropping it into the applications folder. One thing I have been very pleased with is the battery life, it seems to be somewhere between 4 and 6 hours which is so much better than anything else I have.

I am not going to get rid of my Windows laptop and I will probably replace it when it gets to old but I will also do the same with the Mac, now I have one I don't think I can go back to not having a Mac.
