    IWT- Glad to hear you had a great experience. Lot of things to do in the Orlando area.

    Thanks to all for the responses.

    Welcome! And glad to see another northerner that has decided to leave winter behind. We just moved from central PA to northern Orlando this past summer. Still getting acclimated, but enjoying the (mostly) warm winter.

    cwa107-Thanks for the welcome. We use to get to Erie,PA every so often too. Welcome to Florida, we've been here now about 18 yrs. Most will tell you after you go thru a summer or two you'll get use to the heat & humidity. Of course in Buffalo it got very humid at times during the summer. I'm about a little over an hour from Orlando. Good luck with the move. It's a lot busier down where you are then up here but you have a lot more job opportunity their.

    You hit the nail on the head, it is definitely far busier here than we are accustomed to. Having grown up in Amish country, and then later living in the outskirts of the tiny metropolis of Harrisburg, we didn't know traffic the way they do here. That has really been the most difficult thing to get used to thus far!

    Anyway, glad to have you on-board and again, welcome!

    Hello hello
    Hello all. I'm Michael. I am actually looking into replacing my laptop and since I already have an iPhone 5S and iPad mini, it makes sense to finally do the switch from PC to Mac. Obviously a little more expensive, but worth it. So I'm here to get some advice on what I should go with. Looking forward to some good conversation as well.

    A warm welcome, Michael.

    As Nick said, start a new thread. In doing so, give some thought as to the sort of things you are most likely to be using the Mac for - games, surfing, music (listening or editing as well), high-end or general purpose video editing; photo-editing ambitions etc. And then there's portability - priority; nice but not essential; desktop preferred. You get the idea. The more you tell us, the more we can advise.

    Hi from grecai in Australia
    Hi everyone I'm a newbie here.
    I have been a PC user for years and have just bought a new Mac. 21.5 inch (Late 2015) 2.8 with 8GB ram.
    I like the Mac and found using the Mac easy to set up and use, just a few things I need to learn however I am finding out little quirks by accident like moving finger left to right on the mouse makes the webpage scroll left or right, how smart is that 10 out of 10 Apple.
    Over all I'm impressed with my Mac.

    Cheers,
    Greg

    A warm welcome, Greg. Nice to have you join us. Ask away any time. No question too simple. And keep your eyes on the Forums. Lots to learn by reading about others.

    Hmm, I completely forgot to present myself, so...
    My name is George, I'm from Moscow, Russia (a.k.a. Mordor, according to the latest translation made by Google Translate), but I spend a lot of time in London, UK, and I normally buy all my equipment there. I bought my first Mac 5 weeks ago, so I'm a total layman as far as OS X is concerned (though I've been acquainted with iOS products for quite a while) (when my old Windows laptop decided it was time for it to retire - after I'd upgraded its OS from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, it started to freeze every hour or so for no reason, even without any trace left in logs etc. - I TRIED to buy a new Windows laptop but then... there wasn't anything even close to a MacBook Retina 15'' i7 4-core / 16GB / 1TB flash, at least screen-quality wise, so I fell for it....
    I genuinely thought I'd normally work in Windows when I bought it - but OS X is so much more logical and attractive and anything, that I guess I'd stay with OS X on my laptop - as long and as much as I can (I'm a translator, and unfortunately almost all of my translator software (CAT tools) is for Windows.

    Hello all
    Just found this forum and joined today, 1-30-16. I have owned my first Mac for about a week now and really like it. I spent lots of money over the years on pc's that eventually failed , thanks Bill.
    I am sure I will have many questions as I get into using this MacBook Pro 13 Retina more and more. I can't believe I got nearly 10 hours on the first charge!!
    Thanks all for being here ready to answer my questions.
    Steve.
    ps, so for #1 how do I ad "specs" to my member name portion of the screen? Thanks.
