Microsoft gave me a Sony Vaio laptop with Vista Ultimate and Office Ultimate installed to try out. I have been toying with the Vaio but not using it heavily. To be fair to Microsoft, I’m going to try to switch as much as possible of my work from my MacBook Pro to the Vaio to see how I get on over the next few weeks.
A lot of my work is done online so that part shouldn’t be too difficult (I installed Firefox on the laptop last night!). However, for presentations I will continue to use the Mac as there is no comparison in the quality of presentations created in Keynote versus those done inÂ PowerPoint.
Oh, and for my photos I will continue to use iPhoto because that is where my current extensive library of photos resides.
The most difficult move will be my email I suspect. I love Apple’s Mail app. It will take a lot to win me back to Outlook.
Wish me luck!
