One week into my Mac ownership and I am starting to question my decision to purchase a Mac.
Today, my keyboard froze and unfroze on a regular 2min on, 2 min off basis. I quit all the programs. The problem persisted. I decided to go for the very Windows-esque solution — restart my computer. I clicked on the apple icon in the top left hand corner and then clicked on restart. Nothing happened. I did it again. Nothing happened. I did this a few more times. Still nothing. Then I just tried clicking on shut down. Same problem. I finally had to go with the only option left to me — hold down my power key.
Wow. When I bought a Mac, I was sure those problems were behind me. Most everyone I know who has a Mac, loves it. Of course, most everyone I know don’t install a ton of 3rd party software on their computer. At most, they install firefox. I enjoy modifying my computer and using the “best” programs rather than just Apple programs. I did the same on my PC and it ended up slowing down my computer. I thought a large portion of the issues from those programs was due to Vista. However, I might be at least partially incorrect. Leopard has the same issues.
I still love the design but this makes me wonder if I should have stayed with my old promise and never buy a Mac again…
