Finally did it! I have been shopping for months for a new computer to replace an ancient Dell PC (2005) model. I also have a Dell Laptop (2007) model that is on the fritz. I’m not sure how many computers I have had but had always liked Dell, until I began shopping for a new one. Unfortunately, I purchased a new Dell printer last Fall, which I found out is made by Lexmark and Dell just sticks their logo on it. It isn’t compatible with my new MacBook Pro, but after hours online with Dell and being transferred to four different experts none of whom spoke the English language fluently I finally told them to forget it.
I had looked at the Mac’s many times and drooled but just couldn’t commit to spending more than for a PC. Today’s PC’s are loaded up with stuff like trial offers for everything imaginable and even if you don’t want it you better not try to remove it because it causes other stuff (you can tell I am a geek by now, LOL) not to work.
Just to satisfy my suspicion that I shouldn’t contaminate my Mac with anything Dell (printer) I called 1-800-My Apple and wallah, a person from Kansas was speaking to me in my own language! He went to the Dell website and did a little research and found out that none of Dell’s printer drivers are compatible with the Mac Lion OS. After that was settled he went on to give me a short lesson on syncing my iPhone. Using a Mac just means I have to stop thinking like a PC which means a more straight forward approach to everything you do on it, like not having to save every little change you make because once you make a change that’s all you do. I visited with this nice fella for over an hour and it didn’t cost my a dime!
Forgot to mention that my Mac is refurbished and came with the same warranty as a new one and saved me a lot of cash and it was less expensive than the Dell I almost bought! I love to save money especially when what I got really is a bargain! I have a lot of old habits to break and a lot of new things to learn but so far I am very happy with my decision.
This is my first post from my Mac!
Grace and Peace to keep on keeping on!
