Yeah … feeling like a right pratt using this new machine.

Ok, ok, I know it’s only been a day but STILL … this thing makes no sense to me whatsoever!

Mac’s used to be brilliantly simple and easy to understand. THIS one is illogical – nothing really works the way I would expect it to. Dare I say, it’s not intuitive? Wow, it’s slowing me down BIG TIME.

The pune keyboard it came with was the first thing to go. Jeez, how do they expect you to work with that silly little thing? So I got myself a normal, wired Mac keyboard but it’s not ideal. For one thing, it’s totally flat, not sloped and the lettering on the keyboard is odd too – it’s straight up, instead of slanting to the right so I look at it and my mind doesn’t register what the keys are straight away. The”M” – I only see that as an upside-down “W”. Annoying.


And what’s with this stupid “Magic Mouse?” My damn fingers keep sticking to the thing – NOT great when you need pixel perfection in your work.

The display? It’s big. That’s about the only good thing I can say. Damn, it’s fuzzy! All this “smooth” shit makes the edges of stuff extremely difficult to see. Again, when your work entails the precise placement of every pixel, this is a big, fat FAIL. I notice it particularly on Photoshop guides – they look 3 times as fat/thick as they should unless you zoom to the max.

So yeah, I don’t have many good things to say about my new iMac. I prefer Windows. It makes sense to me. This thing feels like an expensive toy and not a serious production machine.

If I don’t get used to it FAST, I’m ditching it.
