Yesterday, I posted a forum topic asking about experiences with government-issued Macs. The responses were great, and very helpful.
The post was prompted by a development at work – I happily volunteered to participate in a 2-week trial period with a MacBook Pro…My desktop PC will be taken from me and replaced with the Apple. I am told that certain apps wont be easily accessible, but if it all goes well, its mine! AND in the interest of supporting the government in helping ME and my work to be more portable, I’m all for it!
So, I’ve created this blog for two reasons.
1. To give me a forum to angrily vent or joyfully share my experiences during the trail period. These will include, but are not limited to, network issues, systems issues, my own Mac-ignorance, etc.
2. To keep up-to-date any of you who might be interested in how it goes, and allow you to help me out if you can!
So, stay tuned to Macbook.gov! I also will be posting tid-bits here and there at www.twitter.com/malenaxgov
