In the roughly two years that I’ve been a Mac user, I’ve had both good & really good Mac experiences. Today, I had my Macgasm (Is that a word? If not, I’m totally trademarking that!)
I was pretty nervous about leaving my trusty PowerBook G4 for the new hotness MacBook, but — as it turns out — all that time spent worrying was for
not naught. (Thanks for the spelchek, schmed 😉 )
When I booted my new MacBook, it asked “Do you want to transfer your user settings and applications from another Mac computer?” (or something like that!) I had been preparing for this moment and — with some offline advice from sports fan & Hokie Josh Crockett — it went flawlessly.
I ran the Setup Assistant, hooked up my 6pin -> 6pin Firewire cable, and 30 minutes or so later, my MacBook started with all my programs, passwords, and preferences were right there.
If you’re thinking about a new Mac – just do it. A mac-to-mac upgrade is totally painless.
Everything just worked. It was the quintessential Mac moment.
It was a Macgasm.
