I recently bought a laptop from a company whose headquarters are located in a town that rhymes with 'Poopertino.'
I could have bought a nice laptop for $500. I spent the extra few hundred or so on this brand because it makes it easy to sync my other devices and download apps. I also have a lot of software designed specifically for this OS. I knew going in that this was the price difference, and I thought the expense justified.
Now, I am not so sure.
I hate the new calendar. It is clunkier and I don't like the faux leather-look- like-a-blotter screen.
I hate Launchpad. It's stupid to have on a laptop.
I hate how you can't 'save as' anymore
Migration Assistant: my ass. Except for my videos in iTunes.
I hate how my favorite free office software won't work, so I have to use the clunky system that came with, or shell out for another office program.
But what really steams my clams is discovering that the $75 power cord doesn't fit my new model (Yes, it came with one, but I like one for work and one for home) Not only that, but none of the 'dongles' (bet a boy made that word up) from my old laptop fit—and I have several–for connecting the laptop to a TV or projector. Those cost about $30 USD a pop. Add that to what I spent on a purple skin and keyboard (I hate the feel of the brushed aluminum, too) and it is more of a surcharge than I was prepared to pay. Just sayin'. —Laptop Sally
