The Apple Lion is Roaring

Today, I am uttering words that I never thought would pass my lips. “I WANT A NEW MAC”.

Although most of my work is done on a PC, I have always owned a Mac computer, as well. My Mac is an older machine, but it is good for answering questions abut the Mac and its operating system. It always seemed to me that the Mac was just a slightly different way of doing things. Even though I owned one, I never really longed for one. That is, until now.

I recently got to try out Lion, the new Mac OSX operating system. I was amazed by the changes that Apple came up with for this operating system. It provides a totally new way of doing things. When used with Apple’s new Magic Trackpad (a touchpad that attaches wirelessly through Bluetooth and sits next to your keyboard), Lion is nothing short of fantastic.

The surface of the Magic Trackpad is one large button, so you can click and double-click anywhere. You can pinch to zoom just like you can on an iPad or iPhone. You can rotate things with your fingertips. You can scroll up and down the page by using your fingers on the trackpad. You can even switch between applications by simply tapping four fingers on the pad.

Apple has always provided a stable, pretty-much virus-free operating system, but Lion has added a certain pizzaz. It makes computing easier without the use of a touch screen. I WANT ONE. As others discover Lion, there may be a big move to the Mac.

You can bet that the team at Microsoft who is working on Windows 8 had a big awakening when Lion came out. Now they have to come up with something just a little better and that will be a gargantuan task!

I cannot disagree with this comment. I am in the same situation and want to own iMac soon. Most of my friends own an Apple iMac with the OS Leopard. I was able to visit Apple’s Store in Raleigh, NC to get the feel and thrill of the new OS Lion. I was overwhelmed by the power, features and capabilities. I hope to own one real soon.
