    My buddy's girlfriend needed a new laptop, so I convinced her to get a MacBook. Before she ever turned it on, she mentioned to him that she hoped that she didn't make a mistake... They came over the other night and I gave her a copy of Robin Williams' The Little Mac Book - Tiger Edition. She was getting on a plane for Thailand the next morning. I figured there would be time to read it - 15 hour flight from her connection in Chicago :p

    So, I just heard that she sent an e-mail to my bud. It went something like this: "This Computer Kicks Ass!!! The first time I turned it on in the airport I was immediately connected to their wireless network and on the internet! I didn't have to do a thing!"

    Heh. I knew she'd like it :D

    That's good. Another Switcher.

    I love how people try Mac's for the first time and are amazed.

    I haven't heard anything else, other than the fact that she's happily computing. I'm sure the book is helping.

    Awesome! It's these kind of stories that make me know I won't be making a bad decision when I finally pull the trigger. Cheers!

    Don't get me wrong... I love OS X...

    But seriously, if you love your computer just for auto-connecting to open WiFi connections you're asking far too little.

    Windows will auto-detect WiFi connections and connect you to them as well -- though sometimes it'll say they're insecure and ask you if you want to first.

    For a basic user (web browsing, music, mail etc.) coming from a Windows machine to OS X makes it the little things that make everything more enjoyable.

    The e-mail I referred to above came a few days after the airport wireless endevour. I'm sure she was just throwing out one of the many things she was digging about her new Mac :cool:

    Heh. Well, I did ask if she had a sister ;)
