For most of my life, I’ve been a computer idiot. Even the act of emailing threw me into despair. Then around 2006, I dumped the PC and switched to a Mac. That began a re-invention that opened the door to new jobs, new dreams — a new me.
Of course, Macs are expensive. Laptops and desktops begin at $1,199. But look what you get:
Over time, the Mac will pay for itself — if you also buy:
One-to-One is the secret to going Mac. It’s renewable at $99 per year for three years. It MUST be purchased when you buy your computer. Just look at the incredible math here…..
After the initial investment in a Mac, you have access to endless classes at no extra charge. Every week, I can make an appointment at ANY Apple store and sit with a smart, helpful tutor.
Over the last several years, the trainers have taught me to email, build a website, use a digital camera and camcorder, add music to videos, do basic PhotoShop and more…
Once in a while, I an annoyed because it’s hard to make a reservation in my preferred time slot. Still I usually get to about 25 lessons in a 12-month membership; that’s barely $2 for a private session.
I could rave on and on. It’s important to start talking about a new Mac now because some of you will be looking for holiday gifts — both to give and get.
So this is a post you might want to drop into the email inbox of someone who loves you. ;)
Okay. Let’s summarize the key points:
Great customer service for repairs.
So when students and friends realize how my Mac saved me, they’ve been inspired to make the leap too. (Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t pay commissions; I could’ve made a fortune!)
In a future post, I’ll have tips on how to make the most of those One-to-One sessions. You’ll want to come back for that. xo.
