Hello MacOS

I finally got myself a iMac! WOOHOO!!
OK, I know some people will be saying "FINALLY!". Yes, I've been saying I want to get a iMac for the longest time. Been searching for the best offer. Missed a few goods one, thinking the next one will be better. Until I'm so sick of disappointment that I decided "What the heck?". Just buy one and get over with it. And here I am finally.

Spend the whole night clearing my table which was in a complete mess and unworthy of a iMac.

From this...



To this....



Simplicity is the "IN" thing now. Now I got lots of space on my computer table. You might be wondering, where are the rest of the stuff. Well, they are currently on the floor now. I think I need to find a box to keep them. Room is in a mess (which overflows to the living room too).

OK, this is a 20 inch iMac. I know I keep saying that I wanted to get a 24 inch iMac. But the plans sort of changed along the way. Decided to get a 20 inch iMac instead and use the remaining money for something else. :D

Now I'm feeling a bit alien to computer. Still not familiar with MacOS. And the ultra flat keyboard isn't helping. Keep pressing the wrong keys. But generally, everything is great. Love expose! Love dashboard (Although I need more widgets).

Still need lots of exploring on MacOS. Especially the file structure and downloading files. (Confused over the mounting and stuff) And need to relearn the the shortcuts. -_-'''
Is there any online tutorial for MacOS newbie like me? Or maybe I should go library to borrow the "MacOS for Dummies". Haha.

OK, will keep this entry short. Need to spend more time trying to figure out how to use MacOS. Lots of things explore. Lots of things to install. Well, at least the experience is a lot better than PC.



PS: This is my first entry written on a MacOS.

Labels:

Bring your iMac out, I teach you. hahahah!

Got powerpoint meh?

Curious to know .. how much did you pay for it? And what are the technical specs for it? I am also interested in buying an iMac, but in a few months time.

Welcome to the mac family!

You can check http://www.opensourcemac.org/ for all the essential mac software that you need. It is my bible. Also check out Quicksilver, and BonEcho, the Intel mac-optimised version of Firefox.

Wah, so neat. Thats a good boy :)

I wanna know if you use the ilife? And what you think of it

ooohhhh!!! Very nice leh!

hahaha, your stuff now on the floor! The only clean thing is probably your table which your iMac is on! =D

Welcome to the better side of the world... I am sure you'll love it.. :)

Darran: Check out apple store online. The pricing are the same. But sometimes the reseller might have special promo like free speakers or RAM.

pleinelune: Wow.... thanks a lot.

Rinaz: Haven't got the chance to explore ilife. Will do so soon. :D

tstar: Yeap. Maybe I should take a pic of my floor. :P

NTT: Yeap, I think I'll love it. (Once I get used to it. :D )

Siew lah! Less is more! Happy mac-ing!

From ishop? See a lot of the advertisements going around.

I've been contemplating on getting a macbook for the longest time too. Yr end coming, shud i or shud i not splurge on it? Mmm...

Claudia: Yeap yeap. Less is more.

Anon: Yeap, there are lots of iShop ads going around. Can't miss them.

zeezee: Nah, don't think I'll show you guys how the floor looks like now. Haha.

What are you waiting for? Go get a macbook! :D

Now both you and Izel are proud owners of new Apple machines :)

Paddy: Wah....

dk: welcome to the Mac Side! haha..

one day when i came to office, i realise someone plugged out my keyboard and added the flat apple one in! everything was perfect but i could not find the insert button!! and i use shift insert a lot!

others: there are ways to get cheaper mac, but you must have friends who are staff of apple, and that's if they dun use the staff price quota yet.

KM: actually can also get academic rates too. :D
