Hey congratulations Annette, thats great news!
Shouldn't be too hard to move your documents over, things like Word and Excel documents you can generally just copy to an external hard drive or burn to CD/DVD, and your Mac will happily read them and save them to your Mac hard drive. Things like your mail and internet book marks may be slightly more complex, but in general shouldn't pose too many problem with some patience and Googling.
I had my computer guy come over last night and he moved everything over from the PC to the Mac. I was surprised that he was actually able to bring over all my email addresses, but they converted sort of sloppy and not in the groups I had them in. OH well, I will have to reorganize them myself.
All my documents came over just fine. Now my photos from Adobe did not make it. Well he did get them over and I transferred them to IPhotos, but then I decided to delete the original folder of photos from the PC and bingo, I lost all the photos. He is going to get into the backup of my PC and restore them again and we will try again. Sure do not want to lose all these wonderful photos I have.
There is definitely a learning curve, although if I can do this, anyone can. I could not have done all the complicated stuff that my PC guy did. And he is really just a PC guy and doesn't know much about Macs. But he is learning.
I did set up the email program all by myself and was even able to figure out how to switch identities (because I have multiple email addresses) My favorites came over in a folder, but many were missing so I just deleted them and will start new with the bookmark program we have on the Mac.
So far I really like this little laptop. Very light weight which was important to me and it seems pretty easy to navigate around once all the hard stuff is transferred.
Do you think I need to get the extended warranty??
Oh forgot to mention that I installed I works (which is the microsoft word, excel equivalent) so all the documents that came over from the PC went right into that program really nicely.
