One or two people have remarked that I could have avoided a good deal of the setup on my new laptop if I’d only bought a Mac. “It sets itself up,” said one of my friends on Facebook.
Did your friends ever set you up with someone they just knew would be perfect for you? Yeah, that's me and Mac computers.
I have a new computer, a laptop. It is going to be my primary computer, a desktop replacement. While I have
way too many a few other machines, setting them up has been pretty easy: Install a word processor, a web browser, maybe some movies and tunes, and off I go. I've had the same desktop machine for about five years.
When I was a kid, my grandmother gave me an old clock that no longer worked. I was just sure I could get it to work. I took the case off and looked at all the parts and got my first clue that mechanical repairs of any kind were not going to be in my career path.
