I know it’s only temporary, and that soon everything will be second nature, but the learning curve is such a time-suck. Especially as I’ve gone from a Windows-based laptop to a MacBook Air. I never thought this day would come, LOL!
When I was deciding what to get, I worked out the thing that was most important to me was battery time. I like to move around and work all over the house, or work at the library or a coffee shop, and I need a long battery life. My old laptop was never very good at that, and was down to about a half hour at the end there.
So I picked the MacBook Air with its 12 hours of battery time, forgetting I just wasn’t used to Apple software. It’s been painful. But I think I’m over the hump now. Even if it did take me 20 minutes just to get out of my document in order to write this post, because I used shortcut keys I used to use on my Dell laptop, which did something funny to the Mac, and I eventually had to shut the computer down to exit.
What about you? Do you stick to the same product once you’re used to it, to avoid a whole new system? That was me for the last 20 years, so I’m with you there. Or sometimes does a new feature tempt you into new territory, like the Mac’s battery time did for me?
