We don't really operate this way. If you have questions...try searching the site first for answers. If you cannot find an answer...then post questions on the forums so everyone can take a shot at answering.

We have been Apple fanatics since the first Apple (the two Steve's - not Eden!). Had one computer for 11 weeks; decided husband was too much of a keyboard hog and bought my own. Have been Mac Consultants for many years. Currently have MacBook Pros with desk displays, etc for in office use. Use iPads, iPhone and Verizon wi-fi card.

Hello everyone. My name is Maria R. I am 46 from Guatemala, although I have 1 years since I changed to a MacBook which I learned to use by myself and been very satisfying experience. I am really trying to discover all the apps and cool things about Mac, but it has taken me a lot of time, but hoping to find someone who can help me on how to learn more and where. Any help will be appreciated. And I wish that some day I could help someone in my shoes.
What I love about my Mac is that I can surf the web without worrying me about so much viruses, and I surf a lot.
Have a a great day.

I just purchased a MacbookPro 13". It's the first Mac I own but I've used them for the last 15 years while working in media development. I've owned just about every computer you can think of and am not loyal to any one type of computer.

I currently have an MbPRO, Acer Netbook, HTC Evo, often use Ubuntu at home and Solaris at work.

I love all computers and happy to finally own a mac.

Hi my nickname is plaiter.

I have been a PC user for 20 odd years and today I finally bought my first iMac.

I have been looking at Mac's for some time as I have ipod, iphone, ipdad & Apple tv.
But was put off by talk of compatibility issues and the different interface.

So today I took the plunge and feel like my first day at school.

I appreciate a lot of my questions will have been asked many times so will check the forums before posting.

It will be nice to talk to people going through the same experience.

I have actually owned our iMac for a few years now, but have only gotten to know Macs and OSX recently. I like to say i'm smart enough to know how to
do most things on a Mac, and have begun to work with terminal. Everyone I
know thinks Macs are nice looking, but being a Windows fan for decades, I think Microsoft has grown stale IMO so I have embraced Macs and have the
ipad and a macbook air on my radar. Anyway, take care and chat w/you all
later.

I decided to purchase a MacBook Pro after being a Windows user for a long time. I have done a lot of research and felt that this was the right decision. I am really enjoying my new MacBook Pro and am looking forward to learning more about my computer.

Little bit about me: I am in my last semester in college and looking forward to applying to Graduate school.

Thanks for reading!

I joined the Mac forums in 2009 according to the info ! I only pop in here when I have an issue, which is infrequently.
Karl, from England, I have the supercilious accent and everything.

I've been using a Mac since 1984, when the world was all monochrome and my phone had a wire that went into a wall.

Since Apple Mk2 (the return of Steve), I've had 2 x iMacs, an eMac (still got this for no reason than it's too big to lose), a G3, G4 (still got this as a footstool) and a G5.
Right now I have a MacBookPro 15", a MacBookPro 13", an iPad2, an iPhone, an iPod touch and an iPod Nano. I had Apple TV (mk2) but sold it as I'm not a heavy TV user and, here in the UK we have the BBC, which pretty much covers everything you need (no adverts & top quality).

Every 18 months I beta test one Windows software title, so, on Monday I'm going to load Parallels and Win7 on the 15" book.

Hope to give & receive help is equal measure.

Thanks for reading

kind regards, Karl.

chances are I think you are a douche.

I am Sunny Taylor. I'm a 62 year old cowgirl, who lives in northern Wyoming. My first computer was a Tandy Color Computer, with a tape drive. I went through all the Apple computers, the last one being an Apple II GS. Then, because I wanted some of the modern programs, I bought a PC. I had four PCs and decided that I had had enough of the Windows programs, so I bought my first MacBook Pro. I am now using a second MacBook Pro. It has been a learning experience and I'm still having some issues with Numbers and Pages. My mind is having a hard time converting from Excel and Word. Trying to do some greeting cards, but fighting the margins, etc. Anyway, I'm joining this forum to learn a little more. I'm considering buying a new printer that will work wirelessly, so any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi,

My name is Abeda Sultana and I work at a school solely based on apple computers, servers and devices.

Have always come back to this forum for solutions and would now like to post a few for which I have not found any.

Best regards to everyone.
