Hello everyone, I am a relative newbie around here, have posted just a couple of times, but in the last few months I have been reading these forums daily and I am trying to get some real sense of Macs and OSX. I have been a Windows user my entire life and I have zero experience with OSX or even IOS. Not because I have something against Apple or anything like that, but simply because my first PC was a PC and as a child I wanted to be able to play games...that's how I stuck with windows machines. Too many years have passed since then and lately I am contemplating on getting a macbook (I wrote a thread about it in the Macbook section). There are a few features that have caught my eye and intrigued my interest. Since I have absolutely no freaking idea about OSX and what I win/lose migrating from Windows, what my advantages are and what my disadvantages (in relevance to my needs), I'd appreciate it if you could shed some light into it. I am a business consultant/analyst and professional copywriter, so 80% of my workload is performed through a browser: SaaS, Google Apps, Emailing, etc etc. I don't use any specific piece of software except for the office suite of course and Visio sometimes (I know this isn't available on MACs). But apart from these, everything I do I do it through a browser window. Furthermore I do a lot of reading, TONS of typing and really really heavy internet use (20+ heavy tabs open simultaneously). I don't care much about anything else operating-system-wise, just want a stable, smooth operating system that works as intended and it is pleasing to the eye How will I find the transition over to OSX? I am planning on keeping a Windows laptop laying around for when absolutely needed but I would like to make OSX my main operating system. Thinking of getting a MBP 13 with 16GB of RAM(hook it to 2 monitors when at home) so that I am task-heavy-proofed and should I like it, later in the future I may get an iMac too and use the MBP when on the move- outside of home. So if there is anyone who is or has been a situation similar to mine (from Windows to OSX or utilizing both systems) and could comment on his or her experience that would be amazing and really helpful to me. Any input you may have, please feel free to share it, I appreciate any little piece of detail. Thank you in advance, G.
