TCS and a MAC computer

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I am getting a fancy MAC computer as it does not get viruses and MY old one is dying fast - possibly of a virus (but my anti virus scans 2x daily!)

Will TCS run on a Mac computer? Will I still be able to post photos?

Why don't you use Safari? Can you change email fonts and colors with Firefox? I could't when I tried on my PC?

What email do you use and what is your ISP?

I don't have my Mac yet but I am terrified as all I know is a PC!

I like Safari. Don't be too terrified. I have run on a Mac for more than 10 years. My school district changed to PC, and I think this is the 3rd year I have worked on Windows. It's not so hard to make the conversion.

I use Firefox as it was the first to download fully when I was choosing! I don't know if you can change email fonts or colours with Firefox, but it doesn't particularly bother me!

I use yahoo, hotmail, gmail and my own domain email and my ISP is BT Openworld!

You shouldn't be scared of changing to Mac, it is really quite easy! I use both PC and Mac and have no problems switching between the two!

I've got a Mac and I use Firefox...everything runs smoothly and I LOVE my Mac. Good choice!

Thanks for the support! I seem to have a learning disability and have trouble understanding and memorizing. i have the book - switching to a Mac but without the computer in front of me I cannot understand it all.

How do you get zip discs from one computer to another (my zip drive is broken) and how do I get programs and my own personal documents?

depending on what your new Mac has on it, you may need to purchase a separate floppy/zip drive [i had to, because my iMac didn't have a floppy drive at all]. that way i could copy stuff from my old Mac & put it on the new Mac, just like you would do w/a PC.

Mac hasn't had floppy drives in at least 7 years. Perhaps you should invest in a safer method of backing up your files, like a jump drive.

What is a Jump drive? Do MAC's read zip discs? If so can I buy an attachable zip drive and copy my zip files from it to the mac?

If you buy an external zip drive, you'll be able to use it. A jump drive is known by a few names: thumb drive, USB flash drive, USB memory stick. It plugs into your USB port and you store data on it.

Thank you so much! My brother has a MAC but somehow does not seem to be able to answer my questions. He just keeps saying "We Talked about that"! We may have but I guess I just did not understand!

Thank you again!
