Last week Yasu and I ordered a new MacBook for me in the Apple Store in Shinsaibashi. We had to do it online because they don’t sell computers with English keyboards in the store and I really can’t work well with a Japanese keyboard, it keeps switching to Japanese characters, the spacebar it too short and all the symbols are misplaced. But ordering it online requires patience, which honestly I don’t always have… So I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new MacBook. It was due to arrive yesterday, but around the time it was supposed to be delivered I had to work, so Yasu told them to come today before I go to work, and here it is:
It beautiful and very thin and light, but best of all it’s a Mac and not a PC. I’ve been wanting to get a Mac for years, mostly because I was getting sick of anti-virus programs slowing down my machine and the limitations of creative programs that run on Windows programs which would always freeze up anyway. But I’ve been using Windows for a very long time and I’m really used to it, I know where everything is and how everything works, even if it doesn’t work properly. So, I’m going to have to get used to a completely new system, but I’ve spoken to many people that have done it and they all say they got used to it quickly and would never switch back to PC. So I can’t wait to start playing around with my new Mac and trying out all the awesome programs on there, and hopefully become a satisfied computer user too.
