Default Jumped ship

Oh my goodness oh my goodness..... I finally did it.... after thinking about it for the last 5 years...... I ordered myself a new 24 inch Mac... jumping ship from HP PC to MAC! AHHHHHHHH

Spam me with any tips, tricks and tutorials to help teach myself a new operating system.

Merry Christmas to me!!!!!

Yay!!! I use a 15" Macbook - I would love an iMac with a bigger screen, but I would never see hubby then as I'd have to scrap in the office instead of on my lap while ignoring whatever is on TV lol

Enjoy! I'm not a Mac person, but over the summer I bought myself a 27" monitor. I adore it! After almost 20 years of scrapping on 17" laptops, I got used to the big monitor real fast and now hate using my computer without it!

Congratulations!

After scrapping on a laptop for years I got a desktop a couple of years ago and have dual 24” monitors, I live it.

My 3 girls all have Macbooks. I still have an HP laptop for scrapping while we binge tv.

Google "Miss Freddy". In her shop she offers a class called "Mac Basics". Lots of tips and tricks for those new to the OS.

Welcome to the Mac family!! Hit me up if you have questions, while I don't consider myself a guru, it is pretty much all I use. I actually slip a few curse words when I have to use a Windows platform....LOL.

How exciting! Did it arrive yet?
When we went to remote teaching in March 2020, I knew that I couldn't survive with my little school MacBook, so I bought myself a 27" iMac (I really had wanted one for scrapping for a while, so this was the excuse I needed to make the move lol). I absolutely LOVE it. I've been using a Mac so long for school that I honestly don't remember how it is different from a PC, but feel free to ask for help if you have any questions!

The 27 was huge!!! Maybe some day in the distant future I'll upgrade to that one.... lol. Yes its here! And my new drives with all my stuff from the PC! Been busy making the previews for my stash of kits and even made a couple pages on it so far! Also have been installing my fonts and all my presets installed in PS.
