Switch It Up
I'm officially a switcher. Don't go gettin' all excited. I'm talking strictly about my computing life. After 17 years in the computer industry, I recently bought my first Mac. A "switcher" is a PC user who has converted to Mac. I've been using it for a few weeks now and all I can say is, "Wow!" My only regret is that it's at home and I spend most of my day at work.
I agonized over spending the extra money for a Mac when I could buy a comparable PC for quite a bit less, but now that I've done it, I see the key issue is that they aren't really comparable. The Mac wins, hands down. Although it has a few quirks that take getting used to, it's very simple to use and that was one of the key selling points.
You see, I told The Pastor that the Mac was for him and in light of the fact that he's not the most techie guy (major understatement), I should get him something easy to use. Clearly the Mac was the best option and in his best interest. Surely he could see that I was buying thing purely out of love for him.
So far, I'm loving his Mac and he hasn't touched it....
