Return to the Darkside
That’s right… I am headed back to the dark side. I’m not going willingly, mind you, but I am going none the less. I am going back, kicking and screaming and clutching my Mac for dear life. I’m going back to PC life after about 6 years with my Mac.
As much as I hate to admit it, it’s time. Like I said the Mac is about 6 or 7 years old and it served me well while I got the kids belts business up and running, but I think it’s ready to be replaced with a newer model. So, it’s packing up it’s cane and denture cream and headed off to retire in Palm Springs. Farewell Mac, I’m sorry we didn’t get you a gold watch….
In my computer replacement search, the suggestion of getting another Mac came up, but honestly as much as I loved my Mac, I ccouldn’t justify the price tag. I could get a super fast PC with a huge screen for a fraction of the cost of a dinky little Mac laptop. So I chose to go with a desk top PC. I did this for two reasons, the first being that if it’s a desk top, I can’t take it home with me. Therefore, work stays at work (for the most part). The second reason being I could get a much bigger screen for a desk top computer than I could for a laptop and that makes me happy. With as much detail work as I do with our patterns and designing, the big screen is necessary and let me just say, wow, what a difference! My Mac had about a 15″ screen and now I am working with a 24″ screen. It’s like working with a TV screen!
So far it’s been an easy transition because most of the programs I use on the Mac were window versions, because that’s what we already had.
Don’t tell anyone, but I haven’t gone totally to the dark side… I mean I do still have my iPhone…
