They had a Christmas sale at our base exchange of $200 off all MacBooks and iMacs, so my wife bought me the entry level 13" MacBook Pro, ended up only being $950.
So far, it's weird coming from using Windows for so many years. Everything feels different, but I think I like it, and I think in the end I might like it more for everyday use. Although I'll always have a Windows desktop I think.
I love the multi-touch gesture enabled trackpad, it's amazing! I've always used a mouse along with a laptop, because I hate touchpads, but this one is so incredible. Instead of having to use the scroll bars to scroll around, I just swipe with two fingers like on the iPad. If I want to go back or forward on a website I just swipe three fingers left or right. I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to another laptop without these features. I also really like the backlit keyboard, and the battery life is incredible! Been browsing the net for a few hours at three ticks above minimum brightness and it's still showing 8 hours of battery life remaining!
I think as far as notebooks go, I'm now a Mac convert, but I'll still keep my Windows desktop.
Can't wait for the Mac AppStore in a couple weeks!
Anyone have any advice for a new Mac user? Maybe websites to check out with tips and tricks or new user introduction tutorials?
