I finally switched. After having something like five or six IBM ThinkPads over the last 15 years, I decided to go on to the Apple platform. In making the transition, my greatest concern was making sure that Microsoft Office for the Mac would be compatible with our Dell Server. No problems there. We created documents on the Mac, saved them on the Dell and went back and forth saving and revising them in each respective OS.
My other concern was the fact that even though Windows is not as slick as OS X, it’s something I am used to and something our external comptuer consultant knows inside and out. I’ll be posting to update on how the transition is going, but so far so good.
I am very excited and very glad I did this.
