I also owned PC's forever, then got fed up with all the bloat they are filled with. Got a mac and i love it! I did take the classes, but once i got thru the basics, i stopped going. The mac is so user friendly. Good luck with it, soon you will love it too.
I just recently switched over to the iMac and I do like it a lot, but there is certainly a learning curve. I still use a Windows based PC at work so I am constantly having to work with the differences. I am making a list of questions for APPLE with things I just am not sure about. I purchased the Microsoft Office for iMac and even that is different. I do love the customer service for Apple. They are the most friendly and knowledgeable folks. I do recommend you buy the Apple Care package. It's well worth it to know that you can pick up the phone at any time and get answers.
Just got back from the Apple store and I do believe we are going to get our very first iMac. I think I'll have some trouble adjusting since I've only used PC before. I told my dd that soon I'll be one of the "cool kids"
My son convinced me to purchase a Mac several years ago...I got so frustrated that he was telling his friends that I would disinherit him because it was giving me so much stress. I was a PC user and was quite comfortable with the system. I took a few classes, purchased A Mac Book for Dummies to help me through some of the problems and I have never looked back or regretted my purchase.I would not go back to a regular PC for anything. You just have to keep in mind that the Mac keeps everything simple. Hope you learn to love it like I do.
I have taken the jump to Mac computers some 2 years ago and never looked back. It is just great to use these machines and quite able to help you accomplish a lot of stuff related to image processing and a lot of scrapbooking included.
The sort of tutorial at first was really great but I was able to save on it through a friend who was willing to run me through over just a cup of coffee.
I love my mac. I recently had to load some software on my husbands windows 7 laptop - he is totally stupid when it comes to computers - so I sat there for at least 30 mins to load a printer and of course the virus protection...30 mins with at least 3 reboots - then we had to wait for the windows updates - . I thought maybe Windows 7 would have some improvements - but no...same old windows. Same old issues. Don't have that at all with the mac.
And what the heck are all those messages on Internet explorer about add-ons? I don't miss it at all!
BTW - I got him the laptop because he could not adjust to the fact that the little x is in the left corner of the screen - not the right. lol.
