Mac day 1: a new beginning | Klampert

I ordered my new mac’s on Friday and they showed up on monday. WOW! That was awesome. I opened them and was ecstatic because I love technology, but for it to show up on my birthday was a special treat.

I had them set up in literally minutes and started dropping in all my software and misc stuff. That will be this weeks process for sure.

Everything booted up nice and worked with no issues. I bought all refurbs. Imac, macpro and ipod. It doesn’t even seem that anybody breathed on them much less used them. Pristine is a great word to describe the condition.

I was worried about my router being a lynksis. Not only did everything just hook up but both mac’s are running on wireless and they seem to have a way better strength connection than the Dell laptop.

Then there was the case of the two computers seeing eachother to network. 2-3 clicks to make that happen and no headaches. I swear PC should be sponsored by advil.

Everything is working fantastic and of course I am fumbling my way around.

Disappointment?: I don’t like that the Imac is not height adjustable. That is actually quite annoying
at this point thats my only grip.

I installed iwork and all the previous microsoft doc. work great with it. Ableton is installed as well. The mac did some software updates and even that was a breeze.

stay tuned for the next thing that I do with this thing

    Lol I just got my new macbook pro too. After having used Windows all my life (With the exception of a brief stint on Ubuntu) I’m amazed. Why in the world did no one tell me how much less trouble Mac’s were? So far every problem I’ve thought of has a simple solution after a quick trip to google. Anyway I totally agree with you!

  2. Happy Birthday!

    Gratz on the new rigs for sure!
