This is my conversion from PC to Apple. Yes, you heard this correctly a PC user has moved to using Apple and for a simple reason, Apple advertisements got me. Ok before I tell you the whole story I am just going to say that both PC and Apple are great at what they do and how they do it. They both have weak point and strong points and I was more involved in PC and windows so I stuck with it up till yr 11 when I needed an Apple for school, yes my first experience with Apple was forced but I could’ve switched back to PC or windows laptop it it wasn’t any good after high school but I didn’t I saw advertisements that made me believe otherwise.
Ok, so ever since I was young somewhere between kindergarten and year 2 my family had one of the windows 98 computers that had a box for a monitor which came the time of the dial-up tone from the internet. This computer was great for its time and I saw the opportunity for it in the future and what it could bring well not exactly I saw it to a way to play space pinball and man that was just as good.
So as I got older I got to use more and more computers since the technology was progressing as well, first was an hp laptop my sisters got for their school studies but it also came with free inbuilt games which I was the sole player of ‘i was about year 4ish for this experience’ but two years later in year 6 I got my own computer a very big all in one monitor from Sony and it was great I did use it for school work but mostly for watching videos and games.
When I reached high school I still had the sony but when I reached year 10 all of the students in year 10 where given these ‘small crappy Lenovo laptops’ these laptops functioned as if they were only worth 30 dollars but they did get the job done and it was awesome to have my very own laptop that I could bring everywhere and this wasn’t used for games but for actual school since I grew up. Now with this laptop, i discovered what I could really do with a pc/windows computer in the ways of editing photos with adobe photoshop and the general email and word applications I could use for assessments.
A year after getting this laptop I was changing schools and this new school had a mandatory requirement for an Apple MacBook year I know a school wants you to spend around 2.2 grand for a laptop but not on your own but through the school well at the time I was happy to not pay it but I don’t think my dad thought the same. Now don’t get me wrong yes I was forced to get an Apple computer but I was still eager to use it and learn how exactly to use it. Now, this was a great laptop like I mean great, it allowed me to progress with school easily and it held all of my textbooks for school which was great cause I didn’t want to carry those large books with me every day.
So this was my first experience with Apple yes it was great but not completely sold since I was a “PC person” but never the less it was a great computer for what it was. So fast forward a bit more to the end of my first year of uni this was the time I was looking for a new computer and yes I was planning to go back to a windows computer, so I was searching up every new model of windows laptop since I wanted the versatility to bring it wherever I go but also be powerful enough for what I needed. But after a good look, i couldn’t find something that I wanted.
So about a week before boxing day and it wonderful sales, i found myself on the Apple website looking at its new Macbook pro and I loved it even though it had no ports. but the only reason I even considered going back to Apple was a Youtube advertisement that played a video, it was one of those upbeat ads when the laptop splits apart with all the spec’s of the computer e=being listed and join back together and I saw how powerful it was and light it was for travelling. So after not too long of deliberating, I thought I should get one, and so I did. And now I live the dongle life.

And now I have an Apple MacBook Pro and I would not trade it for any PC or Windows laptop at all.
