Moving from PC to MAC?

by bandrews28 / August 26, 2011 9:06 AM PDT

I'm considering transitioning my work computer from PC to MAC. I wondered if anybody had any recent experiences with this. Are there things I should learn/know about the MAC OS coming from a Windows 7 environment? Are any specific benefits to the MAC OS? Any advice/tips would be appreciated.

I do marketing, so most of my time is spent using marketing applications, browser plugins and social tools.

CNET does not like signature links, which is why yours was removed.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
