Word o' caution


Via close business connections... In 2013 I purchased a 2012 top end, super capable Apple laptop from a computer beta test company working for Apple. It had tested good on all accounts. They cleaned everything off of it to regain complete virgin condition. I went to Apple experts, Apple computer company itself, and even began relationship with a retired Apple programmer. NO Body could get too large a number of my PC files loaded onto the Apple. I would have lost way too many important legal documents, programs, drawings, math, and photos of proprietary items that I'm hooked up with. These items are to me very important and must stay available at the drop of a hat. I've been building my file base on PC's since early 90's.


Some people said... well... why don't you just use a PC and an Apple; that way you can have the best of both worlds. My answer - Too much of a PIA! My mornings already start at 4:30 to 5 and I've not time to fk around with separate computer types. I've not the band-width nor desire to PC and Apple simultaneously. That said - I hope PC's (Microsoft specifically) doesn't shoot itself (me or you too) in the foot with all these "new" Windows efforts that their geeks in cubicles on 100,000 sq. ft. operations floors spend their life modifying... for the good of everyone - of course!
