I bought my last Mac (an iMac) in January 2001 and have wanted to get a new computer for a couple of years now. It has taken me a long time to decide on a new computer because I am not a fan of the new glossy screens on most of the new Macs. Last week, I finally decided on a computer. I spontaneously ordered a Macbook Pro (previous model with a matte screen) at 5 am two days after the latest Mac laptops were revealed. I missed out on the refurb models (they went in one day) but I did luck out getting my laptop for a great price.
My very cool new computer finally arrived after a couple of frustrating days dealing with FedEx. It took me over 4 hours today just to transfer everything, which meant no access to both my old and my new computer during that time.
I still have a lot to learn! I am not familiar with many of the new features of Leopard, I can't figure out where the screen shots go after I take them, and I can't figure out how to right click yet (without using a mouse). My old version of photoshop elements does not work on this new computer which is a bummer. That means I will still need to use my old computer for any photo editing/resizing/etc. until I buy a newer version. Fortunately so far all of my other programs I have tried work.
I will probably be occupied with trying to figure out how everything works on my new computer for the next couple of days. I will try to catch up with everyone this weekend. Meanwhile, here is a photo of my new toy.
