After decades of using CP/M microcomputers, then MS-DOS and Windows personal computers I become totally disenchanted with the ever-more-complicated environment. Computers should by now be easy to use! Fed up with acting as technical support to the family I decided 9 months ago to investigate moving to Apple. So I bought a MacBook Air with Apple's excellent one-to-one training and support programme and the trial was a great success. The only key application not supported under OS X was Garmin's Mapsource so I implemented Parallel's Desktop to enable this to run under Windows XP Pro. Four months ago I started making a shopping list of what else to buy to complete the migration - iMac with 27-in display, 2TB disk and extra memory - TimeCapsule backup with 3TB disk - 32GB iPod (edit: iPad, not iPod) - another MacBook - 2 x iPhone 5 - AirPrint compatible printer That's for starters... Key to starting the migration is the iMac, but I'm not about to pay 2012 prices for a 2011 configuration. So at the moment ALL the purchases are on hold.
