I got him (or her?)

Well, at the beginning of this week, I went to the Apple shop to get my Apple laptop, as I said in previous posts, it was going to be Apple Macbook Pro 13". So in the shop (where they had every laptop, computer, music player of Apple) we (me and my parents) went to see my future laptop, the Macbook Pro 13", but my mother found the 13" to little, so she said 'You can have the 15"'. So now I have the Macbook Pro 15" instead of a 13". After all, it was a pretty good idea to go to the shop and don't buy it online (because I would have had a 13" if we ordered it online :p ).

Excellent! Glad you finally got yourself one.

How are you liking it so far? I really need to get myself one of these. Just kind of afraid to make the big switch from PC to Mac, but I really want to.

Well it's far better than my old pc (no doubt about that). The Snow Leopard operating system is really incredible (all kinds of little things that make your experience a lot better). And the trackpad is stunning (multi-touch is awesome), but I think you know what it can do, so I'm not going to explain it.

The transition from pc to mac was quite easy, although I had to download some programs for Mac (like FTP-program, The Unarchiver (for extracting .rar), and a couple of other things).

PS: Dont buy the Apple Mouse, it's rubish.

That's great, glad you like it!

The thing I really don't want to deal with is file type differences and I will have to buy programs in a MAC version vs. the PC version I already have on disc.

For example, my Cinema 4D Max I purchased about two years ago, which was quite expensive will not work on a MAC. So any file types I have for that program (a lot) I won't really be able to do anything with them on the MAC until I buy the program again which I don't really want to do.

That's the main reason I'm waiting on upgrading my Master Collection from Adobe. When I get the MAC, I'll go ahead and purchase the upgrade for MAC. Though I think I can get both versions from Adobe anyways once I've upgraded. Not the same situation with Cinema 4D unfortunately.

Hmmm, yeah I don't use that program (Cinema 4D Max), so I don't really have answer for that. But what you can do, is install Windows on your MAC with Boot Camp (you get it with every MAC), which enables you to use Windows (and to install the Cinema 4D Max program without repaying). Another option is to buy Parallels Desktop (80$), where you can run a Windows program without rebooting ( Click here for the website and watch the little movie where they explain everything).

I really should get paid for saying this. Razz
