Just switched my GF to a MB :)

I always get "help me so and so does not work" from my girl friend, so yesterday i went out and got her this cute little MacBook which she loves to death. She had problems burning cd's with her old pc as as well as doing everyday normal work. I have not gotten one help me call yet she fingered out everything on her own.

She did all the pictures on her own, as well as now buying and downloading tv shows from itunes.

I am so glade she liked it now i don't have to spend 30 mins trying to figer whats wrong with her old laptop

That's a very generous gift. My ex was more interested in buying me heels than Appley hardware. *ponders looking for a bf from MR*

Wow very generous! I switched my first user(s) a couple of weeks ago. My aunt and uncle had the same problems so when their MOBO died they ordered Mac mini. I didn't buy them the machine though... awww... I guess this means you're serious about this one!

My girlfriend bought a MB after years of dealing with an unresponsive and XP-bloated eMachine.

She loves it, but with only 512 megs of RAM...it's not as responsive as it should be. Gotta fix that.

But yeah, great present. Hope it's got more RAM than what my significant other's does.

I did the same for my GF, I had given her my old powerbook but decided she needed an upgrade... so in the midst of my Mac purchasing I picked up a 2.0 c2d macbook for her

Wait till you've been together for 17 years like me and the misses.

I'm pondering giving her my old Win2K laptop so I can have a MacBook Pro!

Cool! My gf (emmi on MRs) is going to wait until summer to purchase her MB (hopefully they have the *free* printer/iPod promo). By then, Leopard/iLife should be out. That means her MB will be better than mine!

UPDATE:

Well she likes the laptop a lot, the only problem she has is when it starts in XP (i installed Boot Camp on it). She loves who simple everything is, and she enjoys discovering things on her own like importing music cd's . Whenever i ask her about he pc laptop she is like "shut up, it sucks why did you not get me this laptop from before?"

The only problem is she spends more time on the macbook then with me


p.sp Is there are nice games that she might like? she enjoys The Sims but she has not played it much.

Definitely need to buy her Parallels too and use Coherence mode to keep your sanity!

Hmm, starting in XP - terrible, nay a disgrace - huff!

I had a similar story. My wife was a Windows user when we got married. She had an appr. 4 yr old compaq desktop, and I actually refused to allow her to bring it into my house. She's a student, and we were living on married student housing at the time so she would just go to the library to work on reports. Then, Valentine's Day last year, our first V.Day as couple, btw, she was *just* about done with a report, and the Dell she was working on crashed. We spent the whole night rewriting her paper that was due the next day. Went on ebay at that point and bought her a 17" Powerbook. I was a bit jealous, as at the time, I was (and still am) using a G4 iBook. Then, over Christmas this past year, the hinge of her pb broke, and they told me i could wait a month for the part or they would give me a 17" mac book pro as a replacement. Now I am a lot jealous... That will be rectified soon as i am buying a 15" mbp, likely in April. But at least I didn't have to pay for hers...

oops, the moral of the above story is that she loves her macs and won't use anything else. now she tries to get other people to switch, too!
