A number of readers have been asking how my conversion from my Thinkpad laptop to my MacBook Pro is going.
I hate moving computers. I configure the hell out of a computer.
Bookmarks, Browser Toolbar, Downloaded Apps, Plugins, Start Pages, Saved Passwords, Moving Files, Configuring Apps, etc, etc, etc, etc
Moving from a Mac to a new Mac is pretty simple. Just connect the two with firewire and let it do its thing.
Moving from a PC to a new PC is harder, but not terrible.
Moving from a PC to a Mac is hard. I have to switch apps (like outlook to entourage, picasa to iphoto, etc).
And the way I do it is I use both in parallel and convert stuff as I need it.
So it’s taking me a while to get onto the MacBook Pro full time.
I suspect I’ll be there by the end of the month.
So far, so good. Although the bottom of the laptop gets seriously hot. And I use a laptop on my lap.
