about time

I think I am in heaven.  Why didn't anyone tell me these were so very awesome?  We got our very first Mac this week and I am officially a convert.  I still haven't figured out about 80% of the tricks, but I am pleased none the less.  I hit a wall over the past few weeks and the blog posts just weren't coming to me.  We were busy.  I've been crafty.  Just not much writing mojo going on.  My Mac makes me wanna write.  So expect me to be a better poster...at least for awhile.  Any of you guys know special tricks and programs I need to know about?

Yea for the conversion! Personally, I recommend using Firefox instead of Safari as your internet browser. But that's just me...more bells and whistles.

Congratulations it is a good looking machine. I've used a Mac before but am such an anti-talent when it comes to machinery that it really does not matter what I use - it is a necessary evil either way.

Oh you lucky gal, first a big new diamond, then a piano, now a Mac. It's all too much for me :o)

At work we always used Macs. They are so much more user friendly. I would love one. Sadly DH doesn't agree with me. So I will have to live vicariously through you to enjoy a Mac. Enjoy your weekend.

Welcome to the club! I wouldn't own anything except a Mac. The men in my house are PC-ers and I pity them. LOL! I agree with Rachel about Firefox (and so many cool widgets to plug in -- I have real-time weather updates).

Yay you! We adore ours...even though it's almost a dinosaur compared to your brand spanking new one. I also prefer Firefox... :) I think the rest of what I love about the Mac comes pretty much standard on all of em.

I have never used a mac and always wondered what the difference was.

Good luck with it.

Before I scrolled down, I thought the photo was of a new kind of muffin tin. I guess that tells you where my head is. I'm happy you are enjoying your new machine!

I've used a Mac when I was in college for a computer class. That's the extent of my knowledge. I did have fun with making iMovies, but the technology I used is now at least five yrs old. Good luck and let me know how you like it.

Welcome, welcome to the world of Macs. We switched over about 4 years ago and haven't looked back!

I heart Macs. I can't stand to use PCs anymore. I third... fourth? the Firefox recommendations.

I also prefer iPhoto for organizing my photos. It's much better than the software that often comes with your camera.

Ooh welcome to Macworld! We converted just before Christmas. Definitely Firefox over Safari, or even Camino over Firefox... how exciting!
Thanks for the link by the way!
