(Please don't jump down my throat) I purchased my first Mac with great anticipation in June. Waited months for the new upgrades to come about and went with a Macbook Pro 13" i7. Works great - no problems with the hardware at all. But it is not as easy as the Windows I used for 15 years. Just little things are cumbersome like - - renaming a bunch of files at one time - can't be done without a separate app and still not a simple process with that iPhoto is not anywhere close to user friendly as Paint - can't add text to photo's and manipulate them nearly as easily as with Paint Lord help me whenever I try to start using iMovie - still using Win Live Movie for now Just simple tasks like moving and copying files seems very tedious. Creating a new Folder in my tree is a major thing. Maybe I was expecting too much, and I admit it is a beautiful machine. If all I did was surf and email then ok, but I do like to use my machine for other things, and at this point I just can't see why people say MAC's are so easy to use. I'll keep plodding along and hopefully all this stuff with become 2nd nature, but for now I'm somewhat second-guessing myself.
