My New Toy


My laptop died this week. Actually, the monitor kinda half snapped off the bottom part. The hard drive is still there so I haven't lost anything this time but Shawn decided that it was time to update and upgrade. I rely on him and his expertise because I know nothing of these things. I've always been a PC kinda gal because that's all I've ever used. Well guess what he came home with? A MacBook. I've used a Mac all of 3 times in my life. I stay away from them because they scare me. There's no right mouse button, their buttons are on the left instead of right for their web browser, there are a whole bunch of icons at the bottom and I have NO idea what they do. Shawn said he will partition the hard drive so I can go into PC mode when I need to but I'm realizing very quickly that I need some serious help. If I have a party, will someone who knows how to use a Mac come over and show me? I know there's at least one person out there who knows how this thing works (I would link to her blog but I don't even know how to do that with this!!)

HEEEELLLP!

LUCKY GIRL!!!!!!!! Do you have any idea how much I long for one of those sweet machines? Sigh...it's just so pretty.

I would be happy to help you understand what a beautiful Mac is all about. Perhaps you, Lisa and I should get together soon. I think she needs a tutorial as well. :)

Mark is a HUGE mac person -- he loves it -- I bet you will too, once you get used to the 'new addition'.
Congratulations on the new toy!

You sound like Kim (Chasing Channing). She bought a Mac laptop before the trip to China and is still cursing it! (it scares the crap out of her too!)

I really can't comment on the Mac as I too have not used one.

I do know that people who do would NEVER use something else!!

Lisa said...

Congrats on the Mac. I'll bring the wine and some munchies to our class.

He bought it already??? Tell him I am going to kick his butt. He will know why.

Mark & Terri said...

I'd have no idea what to do with it either. :(

You will adapt and love it (from what I hear). Shawn should bring you home those types of pressies more often!

Keep smilin!

I just found your blog today. I'd be happy to help. I am pretty proficient so if you have any questions, ask away!

You will not want Windows for Mac. I PROMISE using a Mac is so much easier than a PC. You'll love it.
