After using PC & Linux for years, I finally decided to give Mac a shot. I have always criticized Apple products for their price and low spec...but figured I'd give one a fair shake. I decided I needed a better laptop. I already have a custom built desktop PC that runs Windows & Linux (I use Linux almost exclusively) that suits my needs fine for work horse tasks. I currently own a big Thinkpad (w/ Windows) that is well built, but very bulky/heavy. The screen (1366x768, Matte) is pretty bad. I figured the Air would be the best choice. I got one with the standard CPU and SSD configuration (13"), but upgraded the RAM to 8gb. I like the fact that the SSD is superb (running on PCIx bus and getting read speeds above 700mb/s) & the battery life is excellent. So the end result is a laptop that is very thin, over 2.5lbs lighter, etc. My laptop usage needs are pretty minimal. I don't really use games on the laptop, and stick to basic work/productivity/web browsing tasks. I have a little experience with OSX....I have used an iMac a couple of times in the past several years. However, I feel that I haven't given it a fair shake. I figure since Apple makes good hardware, if I can work with OSX this will be a good solution. Are there any good tips from anyone who was in a similar situation? I'd be especially interested in tips on OS related issues, as that will be the first obstacle to overcome.
