So a few months ago I decided to go out and but a new laptop….
Unfortunatly as I’m not loaded (although that would solve a few issues in my life) I wanted to buy a strong machine that would last me a few good years as my old IBM X41 and Asus G50VT-X6 did so I’m willing to put out a few extra $$$ more on something that would fit my needs.
As my budget was around $1000 not too low not too high I could not afford the machine I truly wanted.
My plan was to get a laptop with the following specs
13.x” screen (I could do with a 12″ but not 14.1″)
Core i5 and up processor
Good battery life
And Backlit keyboard
Let’s say everything I wanted was in the $1,500 range X220, X1, Serieas 9 Samsung, Vaio Z (wasn’t even out yet)
So I stumbled upon a Microcenter deal with SlickDeals.Net (Best and Worst site on earth hands down) for a 13″ MacBook Pro Core i5 with thunderbolt (bla bla)….
Then I thought you know what why not, I’ll simply price match at best buy and get some points + they had some deal on buy a $1000 laptop get $35 for accessories (Magic Mouse, Extra Charger…) but I’m getting off topic here with this….
So I got my MacBook and the Love and Hate started.
Hands down Apple make amazing products, the build quality, the look, the feel, the overall experiance and their service are amazing but here comes the OS part… it’s a love and hate.
OSX is a nice OS but after being a windows user for so many years Mac OS just puts me back to the old days that everything was not so simple and not so easy.
The OS itself looks amazing, it’s quick especially after upgrading to 8gb of RAM, it’s simple to use and the apple eco system with it’s own software is great.
Things you would find simple on Windows like cup/paste/move for folders simply does not exist on OSX you can make copy’s but not move.
As well OSX does not support Exchange very well but there are work arounds like DavMAIL.
Working with NTFS drives will cost you a few $$$ especially if you can’t afford a nice G-Drive.
And unlike the iPad and iPhone where apple simply lead the way with applications OSX is light years behind Windows Applications making it very hard to switch to a Mac in the business world as Microsoft run the world right now….
But on the other hand what does work works like a charm, fast and quick with a nice touch to everything.
VMWare does solve most issues you might need with running something on Windows but again it will cost you a few $$$
More to come on this topic.
