I bought a Mac!!

Thanks to Dr Azian & Dr Razali for organising a seminar on Mac & Osirix……my wife was convinced that Osirix will help her on her anatomy teachings. Therefore she would like to have a Mac! So yesterday I ‘tawaf’ buildings around Bukit Bintang searching for a Macbook. First I went to two shops at Lowyat. Still not satisfied, I went to Machine at Lot 10. Not so nice fella there…..finally I went to Epicentre in Pavillion & the offer was good enough for me; a free upgrade to 4Gig RAM (with the extended AppleCare).

Now busy installing important applications. As usual, the ‘cosmetic’ & user-friendliness are impressive.

Not bad…not bad at all. But for certain software, Mac still lacks certain punch.

My complaint on apps for Mac so far:

  1. The Entourage is not as powerful as Outlook
  2. The VGA video cable adaptor is not provided – leceh betul
  3. No free sync app for Windows Mobile (to sync my wife hTC Touch)
  4. Can’t use Celcom 3G USB datacard Solved
  5. EndNote X2 is not at term with Office 2008 that I have Will be solved – I know how already….

Update 2nd Jan 2009:
OK I finished installed what essential for general computing. A straight forward exercise. Also managed to do visualisation with Windows XP. Overall…..it is just OK. The urge to really have a Mac is not that high anymore. I prefer Windows on IBM Thinkpad. And that is what I will do after this. Reformat back my X60s & use it as my work horse.
