Hello, as you can read by the subject I have recently taken the plunge and purchased a 2017 MacBook Pro 13" w/o touch bar. I've been a long time user of Windows and thought that it was time to dip my toes in the Mac pool. Now I know that Macs are not for everyone and have even heard some members bash Apple and others glorify them. Now I am not completely switching over as at my work, I have both a Windows desktop for my office and a Windows laptop for those occasions where I must work from home, as my home is about a 2 hour commute one way and I also have a lovable guide dog that accompanies me on my daily journey.
Now in preperations, I have purchased a USB-C hub with 3 USB 3 ports, 1 Ethernet port and a USB-C port. I have also purchased a USB-C to USB 3 adapter and a USB-C to Ethernet adapter for when I am travelling. I have even downloaded all the podcasts from David Woodbridge, those called Mac Basics, knowing well that they are a tad old but I am sure that the steps are pretty much the same.
I guess what I was hoping is whether others may have tips, tricks, resources, materials or even Mac apps they would strongly recommend for beginners and a little more advanced. I am also getting several hours of training from the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, here in Canada! I would appreciate any assistance from anyone on helping me make my first Mac experience a positive one.
Thanks to all!
