I’ve been a PC since 2000 and am very comfortable with it but as the work load increases I find myself fighting with this machine more and more. With having to have Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Outlook, FireFox (with 3 or 4 tabs open), and Pandora running at the same time and juggling between 3 or 4 files in Photoshop the PC I’m on just doesn’t have the muscles to perform.
I’ve used a Mac before and liked the performance but getting used to it is a whole different story. However, what is encouraging is that I’ve been through this kind of switch before on a smaller scale. I switched from IE to FireFox. I’ve dreaded having to do that for a long time before one day making a decision and getting rid of the IE icon from my task bar, replacing it with FireFox. I have not looked back since, FireFox is great! Now I am hoping that the PC to Mac switch will be just as smooth.
I am going to get me one of these new iMacs. I hear that they are pretty good for my kind of work. I know many of you will say I should go with the Mac Pro but those start at $2,500 and I just can’t afford that at this time. Plus I’ll need to buy me a Adobe Master Suite which will be a chink of cash too.
It is exciting and I can’t wait till the day this happens. First I need to get an SUV or a Van, the baby’s on her way and going to be here soon.
I have questions, have you had to switch from PC to Mac? How was the transition? What are the things I should watch out for? I would appreciate any tip. Thanks!
