Switching to Mac

May 7th, 2010

Have been looking at Apple products for months, but couldn't make up my mind until now. Finally got myself an entry level 13-inch Macbook Pro.

I must say it's not a cheap deal at the price of RM3,899, but comparing it to high-end Sony, Fujitsu or Lenovo laptops, it's still acceptable.

After spending few hours with it, I think I barely know anything about Mac. Even something as easy as opening command prompt (or it's called Terminal in Mac) requires a google search.

I didn't expect that setting up my Blackberry to work with Snow Leopard would took me almost an hour. Had to explore everything from scratch again. Luckily I had 3 years experience with Red Hat and vi.

Hopefully the Mac would make me revive this blog again, writing some post as a log to remind myself on how to configure my new machine to fit my needs (in case I format this machine some day).

Share with me in the comments (or laugh at me), if you find me posting anything wrong. I'm surely a noob in this new world..

If my article helped you solved your problem, consider buy me a beer!

Congrats on getting your MacBook Pro. I myself am a huge fan of the Mac OS X. I wish I would get an iMac someday soon. 🙂

Btw, nice to see you blogging after a long hiatus.

It’s not worth to go too deep into the water to know whether the water is hot or not. Salivating for the 27-inch iMac, but let myself get started with a cheaper one first. The cost for iMac is too high (and I can’t bring it around)!

Since my laptop celebrated its third birthday, maybe Macbook is a good replacement, since the cost is not much different.
