Slippery. The Macbook Pro won't stay put on my lap, as the super smooth finish slides well on fabric. This was also true about previous aluminum shell power/mac books. Freezing cold, somewhat warm. Although I've read about the blazing hot temperatures of MacBook Pros, mine isn't that hot, really. It's comparable to previous notebooks. On the OTHER hand, the thing is kind of chilly in the morning, when I want to check email while the coffee is brewing. No DEL key: the key upon which the letters "DEL" is printed actually sends a backspace. There is no DEL key, per the Windows convention. This presents a problem with respect to "CTRL-ALT-DEL" as is sometimes used in Windows/Linux. There's also no Insert, Home, PageUp PageDown, or End keys, the uses of which are part of my habits and part of using the Windows interface, as well as the Linux console and KDE. No right mouse button. (Yes, this again.) It's part of my habits, and the single button mouse is in my opinion inferior and less useful. There's an extra ENTER KEY to the left of the left arrow... The only reason for this that I can think of is to sell external keyboards that don't have it... It's EVIL. Software driven DVD eject button. So you have to either wait until an OS driver is present, or read your beautiful little booklet to see if you can find the f#&king arcane key-incantation to eject it prior to boot. I don't know how many times I have re-booted this thing, just to eject a CD/DVD.
Well speaking from a windows administrators point of view, the mac users had a lot of problems using their PCs to work from home, plus it is not as well know as windows so that is a problem, and they are very expensive. On the positive side, there are very few viruses and spyware that is write toward the OS, and for what they do they are very fast. I myself you windows for work, but I have dual booted my PC with Ubuntu which is a flavor of Linux, and it has a lot of the advantages of Mac, but it has some of the disadvantages minus the cost. It is free or open source.
oh myyy i think ill just stick to my pc:o thank you by the way:DD that was very intresting and i greatly appreciate it:D
They are Mac and most the programs you know or work with at your job or school will not work.
I haven't found this to be true.
