In a post, the other day, I said that the long and boring story about my computer woes was over. Well, it was true when I said it. However, the days went by, nothing wrong with my new Windows computer, but I felt increasingly sad each time I looked at the screen. Nothing was smooth or crisp the way I’d gotten used to. I looked fondly at my old Mac, which is getting more and more defunct each time I try it.
First I reasoned with myself, later with my husband and today I guess I’d managed to justify it somehow in my mind: Went and bought a new MacBook. OMG is it ever wonderful to be back!!! Just looking at the letters I type here is such a delight on the Retina screen — if you’ve never experienced it, it can’t be described. It’s so light, I could carry it in my purse if I wanted to 🙂
I love this little machine, which I’ve named Poppy. We’ll be extremely happy together! I’ve spent all evening installing apps, moving files over to the external hard drive … moving in, in general. The gut feeling is good and settled now, finally. A friend said to me in Facebook; «I’ve never heard anyone going from Mac to Windows before!» … so I guess she smiled when she saw my post.
