Windows 11

Just got it out the box… OMG, it’s so quiet!! You can hardly tell it’s there. Wow

But the big screen was definitely the way to go. Just looks right with it. Approve

Looks like I need to save up some money to get a new laptop.

Windows 10 has until 2025 before it becomes like Windows 7

Don't see why that's off-putting? Storing everything on the Cloud means the machine is ridiculously fast. Boots up in under 10 seconds, runs like a dream - better than any Windows PC I've ever owned. I've had my Chromebook for a year now and it's still as fast as the first day I switched it on,

If you're worried about storing stuff online, you can always have a few USB sticks with your documents/pics/porn etc on Wink

And, as there are even less Chromebook owners than Mac owners, there are no virus issues whatsoever.

I should totally get a job with Google for this LOL

Did you have much to learn, mate?? I’m finding MacOS is a bit more different than how I expected it to be. A bit like learning another language.

But we’ll get there. Although the install was smooth as silk… I still can’t connect my printer. I’ve got enough USB leads already, but they still aren’t compatible.

Printer uses a USB-B to A lead, but that needs to plug into some sort of extension. So it needs a female connector, and all the ones I’ve got are male…

Funny that.

Nothing to learn really - it's really intuitive and very similar to the Windows layout. If you own a smartphone I'd guess it'd be even easier as a lot of the functionality is app based.

I literally turned it on and used it. You pick up a few things as you go, but there's nothing confusing or difficult about any of it.

Weirdest things I’ve found so far.

1: There is no default MacOS keyboard shortcut for either Restart, or Sleep. You have to make your own…

(I use keyboard shortcuts a lot!!)

2: McAfee LiveSafe installed perfectly fine, but would NOT activate security features - because Apple blocked them. Loon

I’m noticing this quite a bit with HP, too. Manufacturer’s support software is designed to look for problems, but to do this it needs access to system preferences and settings (and hard drive access), and the system just doesn’t want to let them do that.

All sorted now though. Smile

It's just need to get used to having stuff stored online, in the same way that I have a HDD, memory stick and a couple of SD Cards.
Guess that Chromebook or any laptop that's like a Chromebook is like a mobile phone, but with the keyboard and screen being separate. Two separate from each other.

It’s not that hard to get used to. I’ve basically done it the last 20 years or so.

I’ve privately hosted my own e-mail server and domain since then. Means my e-mails hang around wherever I go, or which provider I use.

I know it won't be hard to used to it, just need to have the Chromebook to use.
