Hi folks, I am new here. I have been a long time Windows/Microsoft user who just converted 100% to the apple world. My first computer from early 90s had windows 3.1 installed on it lol. I have used/owned windows 3.1, windows 95, windows xp, and windows 7. About 2 years ago my wife convinced me dump my Droid smart phone and get an iphone 4. It took a few days to get used to it but soon fell in love with my iphone. My last computer which had windows XP on it died and my wife's laptop which had windows 7 started having hardware issues so we were in market for a new laptop for family use. I was at Staples looking at windows 8 and playing around with the new laptops. Frankly, I was not impressed. I think it had a cheap look to it and it was so different from xp and 7. Despite this, I was almost ready to pull the trigger and get one and figure it out but out of the blue, I asked the salesperson at Staples if they sold mac computers. He said no. I thanked him very much, left the store and went to the Apple store to see what Apple had to offer. Within 5 minutes of playing around on the MacBook Air 13 inch model and speaking with a salesperson I was intrigued and I really liked it. It made me smile. The windows 8 machine did not. I didn't want to make such a rash decision so quickly so I decided to sleep on it and research for a few weeks since I am a lawyer and the legal field is very much a windows world. After much thought I went back to the Apple store this past weekend and came home with a new 13 inch MacBook Air and an ipad mini. I'm loving both. It is such an enjoyable experience working on my MacBook, despite having to relearn how to do common tasks and dealing with the differences. I am sold for life I think. I am now an Apple person Sorry for the long post, just wanted to join introduce myself on the forum. I'm sure I will need help with the switch at times. Any other long time windows users out there convert to the Apple world? How was the transition for you?
