i’m probably going to have to get a new laptop sometime before the year is over. my trusty sony vaio is showing the early signs of dying. it’s approaching four years old. i’ve heard that’s pretty much senior citizen status in laptop years.
for the past few years, i’ve watched the mac vs. pc war from a distance. oh, i’ve done some research. i’ve listened to the die-hards on both sides stake their claim. but i’ve never fully invested in the conflict…personally.
in anticipation of the great replacement, i’ve decided to fully find out the details of this battle. i want to know if all my smug mac-head friends are simply blinded by the glare of the shiny apple on the cover of their laptop…or if the macbook really is the computer jesus would use.
i only have experience with a pc. it’s all i’ve ever used. it’s all i know. i’ve never invested any time in using a macbook or looking closely at what one can do. i’ve only listened to what mac-heads have to say.
until last night.
last night, i spent about 45 minutes working on one…side by side with my sony…with my mac-head son, chris, as my tour guide. whoa.
i’ll tell you more about some of the specifics of what i experienced next time. but for now, i’ll just say that i saw what a mac can do with a few things i do regularly on my pc and…i was pretty much blown away at how much simpler and faster they can be done on a mac!
