A Future Mac owner needs Advice


Recommended Posts

Ive asked for a Mac Book for CHristmas. cheers (add christmas tree and santa here

Everything i own is PCs, and was wondering if a Mac Book would get on with a PC network and Small Business Exchange server ?

I really want to try the Mac experience and will start off with a little Lap top Mac, just to test the water ;) so to speak.

Do macs have Outlook ?

Congratulations for going for a Mac! Once you've been using it for a couple of weeks I'm sure you'll probably never want to go back to a PC.

Mac's now come with Exchange support out of the box - http://www.apple.com/macosx/exchange/.

Mac's don't use outlook, instead you have 3 separate programs, but which all tightly integrate with each other.

Ive wanted a Mac for about 15 years, but have allways bottled it, with the better specs of a PC, but things change and Apple have really caught up with speed now :)

Its time, starting with a cheap one i can use araound the house.

Do all of them now come with Lepard X or is that a upgrade ? is Lepard the best ?

The current version of OS X is called Snow Leopard. Why they can't refer to it as 10.6 (which it is) is beyond me! All new Macs will come with that. I believe the 10.6.x updates are free but going up to 10.7 would cost you when it arrives.

And people say Microsoft milk it! :ugeek:

i upgraded to snow leopard via the apple shop

bought the proper version direct from them for the massive amount of
