It’s Easy to Switch to Mac

You know you want to, everyone is doing it, you just don’t know how, it’s confusing, you can’t learn it, blah, blah, blah…. As Nike says, Just Do It!

I converted my 40 year old sister to Mac a few years ago. She was a little skeptical at first but after spending a couple days with her 17″ iMac, she got the hang of it very quickly. Now she’ll swear by it and say she loves it and is glad she switched.

And for all you that are still skeptical, my 67 year old dad came to me a couple weeks ago saying he needed a new PC. I gave him a long look and he immediately said he’s not getting any kind of Mac,  “Mommy and I won’t be able to use it” he said . I laughed and said “yes you are.” You’ll never have to worry about viruses, bluescreens, you won’t have to take your computer in every year to get it decluttered from spam, adware, spyware and just slow creepy crawlers that happen to ALL pc’s.

Less than a week later, he was the proud owner of his first Mac Mini. At $800 he was out the door with a machine with more power and features than he’ll ever need. I spent a couple hours showing him the basics of where to find things and the half-dozen programs that he will need. That’s all it took. Within two days of playing around, he was burning custom music CD’s and emailing images from iPhoto like a pro. By day three, I received an email saying….”i think i love my mini mac!”

That’s all I got, if that doesn’t convince you, nothing will. And best of all, you can find a creative way to get rid of your last PC.
