My first exposure to the Mac as a work place computer was in 2006 during an internship at JAPAN MAGAZIN, Germanys’ largest magazine for Japanese culture and lifestyle. Let’s just say these machines were not the ones to entice a long-time Windows user to switch to the Mac platform. I personally had a hard time trying to establish a fast workflow with early OS X operating systems and the outdated hardware. My job was writing articles.
