I got a MacBook Air last week and mulled over what software to use. I needed Word, badly, as I use it for work.
Husband who is tech savvy suggested I buy Office online which entitles one to 5 licenses for computers – ergo if one has 5 laptops and/or PCs, each can have a copy and 5 gadgets – iPads, iPhones, etc. for the price of P3499 per year. Yes, one has to renew the software annually.
I did just that but have to use the 9 licenses. I think the software can be used for Mac or PCs.
The MacAir we ordered online through apple.com.ph. It arrived after about a week. When we tracked it on the day it was supposed to be delivered, we found out that it was released from the Pasig office of UPS at 1:46 pm. By 5:00 pm, it was nowhere in sight. Around 7, I was feeling so disappointed and called UPS. The man who took my call said they delivered up till 10 pm. Around 8 pm the laptop arrived.
Happiness. I’ll try to keep it in mint condition, content wise. The main reason I bought it is that my MacBook Pro was going so slow, even if I would clear it of cookies once in a while. Possibly, my online activities (streaming of K-dramas via certain sources) was responsible? I had Kaspersky anti-virus installed in it but there would be programs that would surface that were password protected. Kaspersky couldn’t do anything about it and always came out with the message “no threats detected.”
Wish me luck that this laptop will not be plagued by whatever caused my Pro to slow down please.
Trivia – Cockroaches are a bane of our household and studio. Once, I texted son if he had put poison for the ipis. I use an iPhone and it spelled ipis thus: iPis. So son texted back, iPis is an Apple product. It was no fluke. If you have an iPhone, try typing ipis in the text box.
Oh, another practice I hope to keep in this laptop: not to load it with photos and music. The memory of the unit I got is the smallest available, that’s why. SO miserly, I know.
