I have been using PC all-my-life, and recently I have been thinking about making a change.
I had a horrible experience few years ago when i visited United Kingdom for my brother’s graduation, we took the opportunity and visited other part of the UK and, as we were in Edinburgh, the backpacker place we were staying had charged internet facilities. Mind you – it was more than half a decade ago, WiFi isn’t a norm and internet access were never be free back then. So I paid for an hour of service, thinking that I should be able to reply some mails and even visit my fav forum to catch up with friends. I ended up spending 35 minutes trying to figure out how do I even launched a web browser, while that white mouse was being difficult. Finally I manage to login to forum, composed a post while uploading a couple of photos, I even made it to embedding those photos into that post and… just in time for them to cut me off before I clicked that submit button.
There were people queuing up waiting for that little white thing (Mac) so I sighed and walked back to my room, that moment I though: “Mac makes me feel dumb, and without a PC, or Microsoft, I am nothing.”
And now… after half a decade later, I am actually consider to feel dumb again – and I am thinking to start with Mac.
When asked, my excuses would be:
“I’ve used enough of Dell or HP…”
“I’ve had enough of Microsoft…”
“I need a change!!!”
So here it is. I am still uncertain of my choice. Microsoft is something I am totally familiar with, and software for PC are easier to obtain, MAC is an alien, but I think I have to quit all of things I am familiar of for a new start.
