I've been using my MacBook Air laptop on and off for a couple of weeks now and I must say I'm suitably impressed with the Mac OS. It's turning out to be a surprisingly no-nonsense little workhorse. Though an avid Windows user for many years, I'm now finding myself wanting to reach for my MAC laptop far more often than my Windows laptop whenever I just want to just get some work done. The only thing I dislike about it is the built-in keyboard. A standard USB PC mouse (as opposed to an overpriced Apple mouse) seems to work fine for my limited needs as well.
It's not the first time I've used a MAC, but it's the first time I've actually seriously tried to use one productively. Frankly, I don't what the fuss is about with people who dislike this OS.
People often wonder how they can safely dispose of their old computers without it costing too much. Here's a guide to a totally free method that I came up with.
1. Remove the hard drive, put a drill bit through it until you hear the platters inside shatter. Toss it in the bin. 2. Run a cleaning rag around the case and make it nice and shiny. 3. Place the computers in full view on the back seat of your car. 4. Park car in a quiet public car park with the windows cracked just enough so it's easy to reach in an unlock one of the doors. 5. Go and have some lunch or dinner.
When you return, I can almost guarantee the computers will be gone.
