I am lucky enough to have been lent my first computer, which is a Macintosh Performa. I am reliably informed that it is an older model, but it is all new to me! I am speedily heading for 40 and have never had the pleasure of a computers company before. I find it all rather overwhelming. All the on screen instructions seem to be abbreviated and I need a dictionary for most of the language used.
Even so, I am thoroughly enjoying discovering the internet and meeting new people. It has certainly opened up a whole new world for me. The only advantage I did start off with was keyboard skills acquired from school way back when there was such a thing as a manual typewriter!
The e-mail system is wonderful as you only have to send short notes rather than the essay needed for a handwritten letter.
As yet I have not explored the wonders of the actual computer on it's own without the internet. Any suggestions?
My husband insists that apple mac's are far more complicated than pc's but I haven't been able to compare yet.
I look forward to a long and happy relationship with my computer.
