I haven’t used a mac of my own since 1998 or so. I think that it was running System 8.05 iirc.
So the new mac laptop seems freaking amazing to me. Here are some items that bowl me over.
- It’s fast to login.
- It’s super fast to switch between users.
- The built-in apps are richer than Windows
- It’s pretty, I forgot how much I missed that.
- The laptop build is amazing.
- Sleep actually works.
- Perl is already installed.
- The dock isn’t butt ugly like the slow start menu.
- Expose is pretty neat.
- It just worked, right out of the box.
Seriously, I have been wrong to be running Windows since the point where a Intel mac laptop was available.
I really hate the old crappy Dell now.
