    Well,

    I have decided its time to move on from windows once and for all. I have tried three other times but cannot get used to using MacOS and how everything works backwards compared to what I am used too. I use all apple for everything else and just want a cohesive seamless experience.

    I am hoping that they release a new cinema monitor soon, I will move all my dell stuff out the door and get apple in my office. Now, with MacOS embracing IOS apps, it should make everything flow better too. I have to move all my files to icloud as well. I am deeply embedded in windows services at the moment and will have to spend some time moving everything across from OneDrive to icloud. But once done, everything will flow much better. I also have to spend some time with apple on the phone to figure out how to share my files etc with my wife as well.

    For our new macbooks I am getting her a lower spec 12" macbook (or new air), and I am getting a 13" macbook pro with touchbar. There is no monitor as good as my 27" cinema monitor I had but I moved it when I moved back to windows last time. This time I am just going to keep at it, and learn the OS and get comfortable with it. I need the "everything just works together" system now.

    Microsoft has been pushing me away as of late with their total lack of quality control of their software, pushing me to iPhone from my awesome nokia 1020 (best phone I have ever owned), as well as now If I have files downloaded from my one drive, after a certian amount of time, they get deleted from my computer. OR onedrive. Who are they to tell me what to do with my files.

    Moving will be a breath of smoke at first but after getting used to everything I am sure it will be smooth sailing.

    I am at that point too Lee. They have made a mess of what they were working towards since Nadella took over. I am sick of the half baked testing team called insiders. I am ready to move now. I just have to decide is the touchbar worth the price of admission or just forgo that and get a new air in similar spec for portability.

    Same here. Some of my colleagues use Windows, and when I watch them do things on it, I shake my head am so glad I use a Mac. What’s crazy about it is that in the past, I knew the Windows OS like the back of my hand...

    Yeah, I switched 3 times before, and kept going back. This time however, I am going to take my time. Use the apple computer for awhile and get used to it.

    I'm now debating the 13 pro with touchbar, or a new air. Is the touchbar really that useful?

    I’ve found that the only useful aspect of the touch at is the Touch ID.
