My First Ever Mac

I purchased my first ever Mac 2 weeks ago.

As a veteran Windows OS user, I was a bit concerned about this move.

The main reason for my Mac purchase is that I wanted a light laptop and the MacBook Air, 11’ beats most of its competitors in both performance and price.

So, I decided to give it a try and purchased the MacBook Air 11’ with 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD.

The bottom line is that I am very pleased with the results.

The MacBook air can fulfil all your needs when you are out of the office so you can afford a powerful desktop machine for your day to day office work.

Previously, I have purchased a high performing laptop to use in both day to day tasks and to carry with me when I am out of the office. Since I don’t like to carry a heavy laptop with me, finding a laptop that was light, with good performance and that could run Windows 7 was a priority. However, this was difficult to achieve when comparing laptops to the MacBook air alternative.

Taking into consideration that these days, cloud services allow you to synchronize your data with many devices, I came to the conclusion that the combination of a powerful Windows 7 desktop along with the MacBook Air could be a very cost effective solution.

So, I started with the MacBook Air as my first purchase and I am very pleased with the results. The MacBook Air has proved to be very powerful, very light and very easy to use. The Lion OSX is a great operating system, which took me less than a few minutes to adopt.

As with the iPhone, once you enter your Exchange username and password, all your data will be in place: the emails, contacts and calendar.

I have installed Firefox but I have hardly used it due to the fact that the combination of Safari and MacBook Air touchpad makes your browsing experience into something much more fun. Functions like “Go back” and “Go forward” can be performed easily with only the touchpad. It might sound a bit silly, but once you get used to it, you will not want to use anything else!

The MacBook Air screen is great. I have found that it is very sharp and that the glossy look of it is not an issue at all.

I am still getting used to it, but so far, it looks like this is one of the best purchases I have made this year.
