Woohoo - I got a Mac

A year or so ago I decided I was ready to move to the Mac. Unfortunately, my employer refuses to get me a Mac so I did the best I could and stuck and Apple sticker in the appropriate place on the back of my IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad. A couple of weeks ago something terribly wonderful happened. Our home laptop that Kim and the kids use bit the dust. After some research I had decided I could buy a crappy but cheap Dell laptop (my apologies to fans of this inferior system), pay a bit more and buy another ThinkPad (I've been using them for as long as I can remember) or pay even a little more and go for a Mac. Well, I'm sitting here typing away on our new MacBook. It cost a little more upfront but it has been the most no-hassle experience i've ever had. I love this machine! It has all of the little goodies baked in. Everything works smooth and seamless. It looks good. It feels good. Definitely the right choice. Now I have to figure out how to get one of these for work.

I love my Mac, it's the best computer I've ever owned. Joe has been slower to get on board with it but has been coming around.

Dan, take the step and just use a Mac at work. Be brave. I just got a Macbook Pro and use it for work and am a proud rebel! All the software you need for FamilySearch works including VPN for the intranet. Just ask Robert Kehrer... I have an extra Macbook I just might be willing to sell!!!!
