What's All This I Hear About Apple Mac's?


Having spend almost 15 years at Hewlett-Packard, you'd think that I'd be an avid PC user. Well, I certainly have used a PC for a long time, but avid I am not. In fact, they drive me absolutely nuts. Having said that, it's not the PC makers fault, it's Windows, and specifically Microsoft that I have the issue with. So much so that the first thing that I did when I left HP was to buy a Mac. I love my Mac! During the creation and delivery of my other seminars, I often referenced a Mac, to the point that people started asking, 'well, what's the difference?". This is how I came to write this seminar. It's focus is on the main differences, some of the advantages and disadvantages and features a live demonstration of downloading photos from a camera, editing them and then uploading them to FaceBook etc, as well as editing and creating a movie and DVD.

Summary and Additional Information
Everyone's talking about Apple Mac's these days, but what's all the hype about? Are they as good as people say and how do they compare to Windows? Should I consider one or should I stick with Windows? If I do move, how easy is it to transfer over my data? Suitable for anyone considering a new computer and are curious, or first time users of Mac's looking for a little help, Philip May of TechnoRV will try to answer those questions by taking you on a tour of the Apple Mac, highlighting some of the main differences between it and Windows, as well as giving you an overview of the main features and functionality.
