so, been using my first macbook for 1.5 week already.. how fast!?!?! what i realize: -using mac is like playing around with shortcut keys, in a way that if you memorize all the shortcut keys then you can do things very very nicely!! -i am having a love and hate relationship with "Spaces". i love it cause it suppose to make things more simpler, but i also hate it because it made things more complex!! sometimes it just so hard to find things from spaces.. -OS is much stable in comparison to Vista(not completely stable tho, those that kept claiming OS X is flawless are liers!!) i had my mac crashed for 5times already!!! -iWork 08 is so difficult to use, i think i will watch the video tutorial soon in order to get the hang of it. it's completely different coming from MS office 2007 and i have to say i like office 2007 much better(just my honest opinion) -things can get very messy with mac, especially moving files around(you need to make sure you remember what happened). for example: i want to put a software dmg into my external harddisc and remove it in my MAC HD, you can't do that(or maybe i don't know how to)!! what i have been doing is, after moving it i would have to manually delete it in my MAC HD, try imaging you are transferring multiple files to your External HD at the same time, can you remember everything? I like how when i was back in windows, i can just cut the entire folder/file to my external HD(less confusion). -the illuminate keys are awesome!! -screens aren't really that bad(maybe because i can't tell) -the black basel that i hated on first sight(think most people didn't liked it), you won't even notice it once you start using your macbook. -time machine is really confusing for me at the moment(i will do some reading about it soon) -i transfer my calender, bookmarks, and contacts via my iPhone(iphone saves the day!!) -dashboard and nice to use.. -expose is extremely handy(except when spaces kicks in) -in less than 2 weeks, my left command already have oil stains that i don't seem to be able to remove!! -safari is great(especially after installing saft with it) -i still get the colors in mail(orange, black, blue??) (can't really recall anymore now, i will try to keep this update) applications that i do recommend: -Onyx(for maintenances) -coconut battery(battery check) -iStat -adium(msn purposes) -crossover(i got it while it was free, LUCKY!!) -unrarx(if you are switched from windows, this should be pretty handy) -transmission(torrents) -vlc -saft(great plugin for safari) -multicluth!! great application -quicksilver -stickwindows -lux delux(great game) -perian(video codec) thats all for now.. please comment! do share something i do not know.. thanks all!
