It's actually a new machine to me but it is old. Then again, it is in very good condition so it's practically like owning something new. :) As far as laptops go, I've had my old Lenovo C3000 N100 since 2006 and admittedly, my Acer Aspire One can't really catch up with the workload I've got. So yeah, right now, I am typing this post on a second hand Macbook.
Honestly, I find it difficult to use. As everyone says, it's because I am adjusting. And that I should embrace change rather than fight it. It's just that there are things I truly miss. Like having a "cut" instead of copying files then deleting them after. I also don't like the menu bar on top of the screen and it's only for the focused app. It's really weird and it annoys me to no end when I am on a dual screen setup and the app I am using is on the larger screen. I could go on and on and on, I swear. Haha.
But I guess the bottomline here is that at least I now have a work machine and it's something that will make it more convenient for me because everyone's got one in the office so if I forget my charger, I could easily borrow theirs instead of not having the capability to do any task. And in terms of installers, I could always ask them for an app or two. And in the future, maybe Noey and I could have fun using Garageband or something.
Will I still be as antagonistic in a month or two? I dunno. To be honest, sometimes I get so frustrated but I have to learn how to use something different. It doesn't mean I have to love it. It just means I need to figure out a good workflow for me. Right now, what works for me is that I've got Chrome and Emacs. That's why I am still somehow sane. XD
