I recently bought a brand new Macbook Pro 13" w/ retina display mostly for professional reasons but also because my current laptop was aging not so gracefully. I am quite pleased with it for the most part. What I find frustrating is that many things that I could simply Right Click or Shift Click to find or do on my PC laptop I must dig through several menus to find to do on my Apple. I guess I could say it is a bit like being thrown into a left handed world.
I know that my Macbook Pro is supposed to be a more user friendly machine but I find myself looking at my old laptop longingly when I become frustrated with this new machine.
My PC laptop was a power house in many ways, 4 years ago. Optimised for speed and HD graphics it was a beautiful beast of a machine at 17", Nvidia GTX graphics chipset, weighing in at almost 9lbs and a keyboard with more buttons than a fighter jet. And this machine is sleek, slim, light weight and built like a fine swiss time peice. It's lovely.
I know I know, you are saying go back to your mass market, cookie cutter pc and leave ours alone. Or perhaps you are not so cruel and you're saying, take some courses or go to the Genius Bar and have a nice night learning how to caress your new sleek machine. I may do the latter. In fact I may have to no matter what. The book Stranger in a Strang Land comes to mind. I feel a bit lost.
I guess my reasoning for posting this is to find fellow former PC owners having the same misgivings and/or troubles. If you are like me please join the discussion. Looking for some fellow travelers in this new territory.
