Since buying my MacBook a few weeks ago i’ve found that my evenings at home are now pretty quiet. That’s not to say that things on the MacBook don’t work – far from it, it boots amazingly quickly, gets on the Internet – first time, every time – and has not needed reconfiguring, updating, patching, driver installing, etc. etc. whatsoever.
When I need Windows I run Parallels, wait for the PC to boot, then wait for Windows Update to install this weeks ‘import security updates’, the AV product to update itself, and the firewall to update itself.
No wonder so many of my colleagues who also use PCs throughout the day are switching to Mac OS X for their home computer – the darn thing just works!
