Hi, I am currently using a compaq laptop and I'm so sick of windows constantly getting viruses and running slowly that I want to switch to a Mac.
As I am typing this, my computer has some kind of virus which no virus program can detect, typing these sentences are taking about 1 - 2 minutes for each line to type out
I want to move to Mac but I dont even know where to start.
At the moment i use our computer to study - using email, word/ excel, for watching tv shows and streaming live sport, storing music an photos, lots of web browsing and skyping family ovrseas.
I do not play games or watch movies/ tv - as it is too slow, but if upgrading I might watch a movie or tv show through itunes more often.
At the moment on the market seems to be the Macbroo Pro and Macbook Air.
with varying price and features...13", 15" 17" screens, 500 or 750HDD, and 2 or 4 GB.
Im really looking at what ou think would best suit me, and what I need to purchase to get started.
Do I have to buy a separate Windows for Mac program...
Also - can I use existing printers, USB devices or do I need to buy an adaptor/ converter to Mac.
Sorry - Im completely clueless and I dont trust ppl in the shops as they are just after the sale!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
