Do you need a Macintosh for the canals

Well, based on my first few days of ownership I think it may be an essential bit of kit. That'll be the Apple Macbook of course.........

The one I have is the black 2.4ghz (for those that are interested) and it is a very fine piece of kit, looks wise and performance wise. 

You may recall I commented on Maffie's woes with Vista Well being a life long Microsoft user (I did dabble with DR Dos once) I am very pleased and impressed with OSX (Leopard) However as I cannot make a simple migration I had to invest in Parallels for mac
as I used OneNote on my tablet PC at work for meeting notes. I have managed to completely replicate my tablet pc - complete with all its apps including OneNote and it runs just as fast - or faster than on the original. It is a fantastic piece of software. However I hope to migrate away over time to Evernote

This has much of what one note has but it also has a web link so it synchronises all notes on the web, my phone and also the mac - truly fantastic bit of software.

Maybe Bruce on Sanity could be tempted to run his GPS software under Parallels ? On a related note Bruce is investigating Geocaching - I can fully recommend it having just started myself. We found a cache at the bottom of Bosley locks on the Macclesfield when we were that way over the summer. It is a great way to add interest to a walk or even a cruise.

I'll let you know how I get on with the Mac, 


Should have said this post came via the Mac and Safari

The more I use it the more I like it. If you need access to a pc (or even the image of a pc you are using/have been using) I can recommend Parallels for Mac a very good piece of software.
