Hey guys, wanted to tell everyone a bit about my family's rapid change from Windows based computers to Macs. The last one we bought was an iMac so I figured I might as well just post it here! So basically I've wanted a Mac for a really long time. I bought a new HP laptop about 2.5 years ago and regretted it almost immediately as I knew I should have just sprung and bought a Macbook. Since that time I've been waiting for it to crap out on me so I could justify buying a new Mac. My mom's laptop was a bit older, and earlier this year it started acting up on her, and was extremely slow. After talking to my dad about it I suggested that we splurge and get her a new Macbook for mothers day, so we did. She called me immediately after turning it on and checking out Leopard. "It's just so easy!" was her first review. She was hooked. She's the perfect Mac candidate, the one all the commercials talk about. She loves music and buys all her new songs off iTunes, uses her digital camera allllll the time so has been using iPhoto to sort and manage her pictures, and iMovie for the occasional video she takes. About a month after she got her Macbook my HP started getting a bunch of problems, the display wouldn't turn on when it was booted up, and I was getting a ton of bluescreens from Windows Vista. Finally I had enough and decided that was the time to make my own switch. So I bought a new Macbook Pro 15 inch with my student discount that Futureshop kindly matched. Like my mom I was extremely impressed with Leopard. I wrote a more detailed review on the Macbook Pro forums so I won't get into a big description here, but it just made multi-tasking on the computer so much easier and user friendly. Finally my parents were looking at getting a new computer for our cabin. I pointed my mom in the direction of the iMac. What we currently had there was a full tower, monitor and external drive setup, and she truely couldn't believe that Apple had made a computer that fit behind the screen. She went down to futureshop to check it out herself, and bought one on the spot. Yesterday she set it up at the cabin (and when I say setup, I mean plug in the power cord and keyboard haha... they bought a wireless mouse aswell). They called me last night and said... "that does it, we're converted!". Even my dad who still needs instructions on copy and paste can use it with ease. When they first opened up the mouse box my mom said she couldn't find the drivers disc... but then she realized all she had to do was turn it on... "amazing!" Anyways that's the short form of the story. It might make it seem like Apple has changed our lives haha, but in all honesty they have. Now I can easily screen share through iChat when they have issues, have 3 way video chats etc, all with a few clicks. I do realize this is all possible within windows as well, but the simplicity of OSX and the included software really has made it a breeze. If anyone else has a similar story please share! I love reading them!
