Mac Cult

I had no idea I’d get such a response when I announced on Twitter I was breaking up with my PC (after decades of a monogamous relationship) and hooking up with a MacBook.

@susantran: It happened.  My computer died… and I got a Mac.  Apparently it supposed to change my life.  Today’s blog post… http://bit.ly/a5zIou

This is what followed:

@baugussd @susantran Let me know how you like the MacBook… I’ve been thinking about getting one.
@KenBuck @susantran it will change your life for the better!
@chrismiller_wbt @susantran I don’t know if it’s changed my life. but I’m certainly happy with my Macbook.
@alisha_hord @susantran Had a MacBook Pro for a couple years and absolutely loved it. You won’t go back to PCs.

@susantran Really?! Mac folks r devoted! RT @alisha_hord: Had a MacBook Pro for a couple years and absolutely loved it. You won’t go back to PCs.

@KenBuck @susantran it is cult like and you MUST love it!

@KenBuck @alisha_hord @susantran Once you go Mac you won’t go back!

@stevorevo @susantran Welcome to the other side. You’ll like it here.

@Billystrick Ditto/// @susantran Welcome to the other side. You’ll like it here. (via @stevorevo)

@susantran Y’all are mac serious! RT @Billystrick: Ditto/// Welcome to the other side. You’ll like it here. (via @stevorevo)

@baugussd @susantran Is trading in your BlackBerry for an iPhone next?

@susantran I hope not! I actually do luv my BB. Worried about compatibility tho! RT @baugussd: Is trading in your BlackBerry for an iPhone next?

@CharlotteDateDr @susantran Have to agree with the bandwagon. Apple is amazing. Even put their sticker on my car and I hate vehicle decoration 🙂

@susantran A car tattoo. That’s commitment! RT @CharlotteDateDr: Apple is amazing. Even put their sticker on my car and I hate vehicle decoration 🙂

@JerseyGrl61 @susantran oh absolutely true; you will never go back, once you’re on a Mac.

@baugussd @susantran Seriously, can it be THAT different? You definitely have to let us all know what you think now. RE http://bit.ly/ct6u68

@susantran Ha! Is there an initiation? Hazing for mac cult following? RT @KenBuck: @alisha_hord

@alisha_hord ha! @KenBuck ‘s right. Hazing? If so, it’d probably be broadcast on built-in-cam, so beware. RT @susantran Once you go Mac you won’t go back!

@KenBuck @susantran @alisha_hord actually yes. It involves burning your old PC while pinning a Voodoo doll of Bill Gates.

@jcorl49 @susantran final cut = much better than premiere. Do it!

@coreyanderson @susantran did you go with the iPhone? Please don’t tell me you ordered #iPad

And my lone dissenter!

@AssignmentEdit @susantran The #Mac I got in October has been flaky to say the least… and support from the “geniuses”…flaky at best. I’m with ya! Rocky!

Not everything converted. The geniuses (no sarcasm here, that’s what they’re called!) at the Apple store tell me — it’s a PC thing.  They said the PC programs won’t give up my data without a fight and not to blame my new computer, who’s more than willing to accepted any and all of my files.

Mac and Me, I think we’re in the ‘getting to know you better’ stage in our relationship.  As my best friend said, “you’ve been with your PC your whole life.   You can’t expect to know your day-old Mac the same way you knew your PC!  Give it time.”  I will.  I will.  Hopefully we’ll live happily ever after!

    The MacBook aura is a myth! I converted last year – and the Mac is no better than the PC. It crashes, it stalls, it’s the same old crap. I just had to figure out how to use all the Mac programs instead of my PC programs – which wasn’t too bad. It works better with itunes – that is the one nice thing. I was expecting my life to change – and there has been no life altering experience.

  2. […] of you know, after years of being a PC user, I made the switch to a MacBook.  Many of you promised it would, of all things, change my […]
