The plunge into Apple land these past few days has rendered me into a totally clueless and frustrated idiot. For someone who has used a PC for about 25 years, switching to a Mac is not easy. For those of you who are thinking of switching, I’m keeping it real for you! Thank goodness we signed up for the One-to-One Program to get personal help on setup, training, and projects. They transferred our files from our old hard drives a couple of days ago. That convenience right there was worth the price of the program to us.
After using our new iMacs the past few days, we took my computer in earlier this afternoon for a scheduled training session so that we could ask a ton of questions on various things that have been stumping us. (We’ve made more trips to the mall this past week than we usually do in a couple of years, LOL.) Among other things, we had special issues dealing with our photo software interfaces, so that necessitated us bring in one of the machines. All of our questions got answered! I’m sure that we will have many more questions and issues in the days ahead, and we’ll just keep scheduling more sessions. The program is good for a whole year! It has been quite comforting for all staff at the Mac Retail Store to be extremely patient, informative, and downright funny.
We were also extremely pleased with the ease and speed in getting our Adobe Photoshop program switched over from a PC to Mac license. We opted for receipt of new a program disc rather than a download. For a $6.50 shipping charge, we received our new disc two days later. Amazing.
I have gotten way behind on blog reading and visiting. I’ll try to catch up with everyone when I can, OK?!
