    Thumbs up Switcher: 1 Week Later
    Good Day Folks!

    Well, it's been 1 week since I made the switch, and I must say this past week has been fun. I am actually having fun again on a computer, the experience using a Mac has been awesome, and the community has been very helpful.

    Long may it last. I switched 2 years ago and I'm still having fun.
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    I bought my first mac in December and still loving every minute of it. I want to become the mac guru that i am with PC's(25 year PC tech) The only Feature that I would want on a mac is the ability to change the default system font size.

    Mac Book Pro 15" 2.4 GHz. Core i5 4GB 1067 MHz. DDR-3 Ram
    Last Sat. was my 2 wk. switch and what did I do?
    I went back in to the Apple store and "Switched" again!!
    This time to a 15" Pro... Because of the new model release,
    I was able to grab the 15" model at almost $400 bucks off!
    So I swapped my 13" and got all the upgrades I was going
    to get on the new 13" model and the larger screen that I wanted
    in the first place, but couldn't afford it.
    And I'm lovin' this new one!!!!

    I swtiched a year and a half ago when I bought my first Mac - a 13" late 2009 MBP. I was in love right away and my wife loved it too. She loved it so much she hogged it away from me lol.

    Last weekend, I walked into the Apple Store looking to buy an iMac and walked out with a new 17" MBP with the 2.3 GHz quad core processor and the antiglare screen aka. my dream machine

    We love our Macs and am glad we switched too. Best part is, we haven't had to even think about getting Windows on our systems yet. Coming from someone that has grown up with PC's, that's a big shift

    Switched like a week ago? Two now? I don't remember. My MBP and I already feel like old friends. Big tech junkie, grew up a Windows man. OS X is just so easy to figure out. I turned on the machine and for maybe about two minutes I felt like everything was backwards, coming from Windows...but after maybe 10 minutes you realize that everything on a mac just FLOWS. It's so EASY and everything does what it's supposed to do. I did hold on to some PC programs that I am fond of, like my web browser. I'm a big Firefox guy. Safari is neat but I love being able to customize Firefox.

    Yes and one thing I've definitely noticed is that the mac community is SO much friendlier. There are any number of Windows forums and members always tend to be so snooty when you ask for help with anything, as if everyone should automatically know how to deal with every issue. There's no need for all the hate. Everyone here seems to be so nice! i.e. everyone keeps expressing their excitement over the fact that Apple has a new convert. It's like a cult, only we got cool new computers instead of poison Kool Aid!

    I think we should all get Shamrock Shakes instead of Kool Aid. :-)
