My first mac!

in General Discussion edited January 2014

my brand shiny new 12" pb arrived yesterday. I love it. I have deleted internet explorer and am now using safari which i like much better. Any bit of text anywhere on screen looks great. I did think the screen might be a little small for me, but now that i've seen it its not at all. Checked it over and it doesn't have any of the problems i've read about... gets warm but not hot. the whole thing feels really solid and great.

i don't much to do on it at the moment as i have no software, but hopefully i will rectify that soon.

    Wouldn't be so fast to delete IE -- despite the spite we all hold for it and its maker, there are still some sites that just don't operate well in Safari (yet).

    Safari is still in the beta version and does not work for everything and it does not hurt anything to let ie sit on your hard drive. I use both though i prefer Safari

    Welcome to the Mac community!

    One thing though...if you plan on doing any online banking keep IE around. There are some sites that don't work with either Safari or Camino.

    Use Safari or Camino and leave IE around for those small occasions.

    I'm using Safari on my wife's iBook. I like heaps better than I.E.

    Not tried Camino. I didn't like the look of 'Chimera's' interface last time I looked...
