People think I’m funny saying that a computer or something technical is sexy but I really don’t care. Look at the Mac book air! It’s sleek, smooth, light and strong. There’s nothing about the physical design of this tiny laptop I don’t like. I’ve been a fan of the Apple keyboards for years so it goes without saying that for me, this was one of the major selling points of this but I wasn’t expecting to find the entire package this appealing.
I have a good grasp of the basics of using OSX but equally as using a Mac as my primary non-work system I am forced to learn a lot more. Navigation around applications seems slow to me at the moment but this is very likely because I’m not using all the power of the Voiceover screen reader yet. Text editing is definitely the hardest thing to do at the moment. I am finding it hard to become comfortable with the way the cursor moves and it’s placement in relation to words and characters in comparison to the PC. Still, it’s an interesting and enjoyable learning process.
I’m still in the honeymoon stage but I plan to document my successes and failures as I come to grips with this new system.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. I can’t promise that I’ll be much help but I’ll certainly try.
