Hi,

Bought a Macbook (black) the other day and I have to say I am not sure I like it. It is taking me time to get use to the power up only taking 20 seconds, the speed of the internet doubling, not having to update anti-virus, not having to run spy sweeper, etc... I feel that I'm not working hard enough.

Anyway, this is a nice site and I have learned a lot over the last few days.

Thanks. MD

Yes - It is sarcasm. I really like the mac - a lot. My only complaint is having to spend extra to get black plastic over white. But, that was my choice/fault. I still have not thrown out the (s)Thinkpads yet - maybe in a few weeks.

Thanks. MD

You should have seen me in the weekend a couple of Saturdays after purchasing my iMac. There I was with a cup of coffee getting ready to sit down to do the usual windows updates, anti virus scan, registration clean up, hard drive defrag....

And then I saw the Apple logo on my iMac....

uhhhhhh.... Doh!!!!!

I know exactly how you feel. Whenever I used to get bored on my PC, I would go ahead and do some system cleaning. When I got my Mac, I had to found new ways to entertain myself
