Their reputation for excellent service is well-deserved. Paul, my Apple guy, was friendly, funny, and best of all, honest. I happily wrote him a note and one for his boss on his behalf as soon as I arrived home. It was the best retail experience I've ever had - and I am a very tough sell when it comes to service. In just minutes I was up and running.
It is amazing what I can now do with photos, my music, personal websites. Even powerpoint presentations are a joy to build. This is the ultimate toy. And it's so intuitive that I find myself having to unlearn all of the work-arounds I've had to learn over the years to operate a PC. I almost have to be re-trained to think naturally about how a machine operates.
My Mac is also affording me the opportunity to learn design skills and expand my creativity to movie making and original music. I could go on and on, but I really need to get back to Mac. He's got a lot to teach me.
