Which is where the potential difficulty for Apple comes in. From a
superficial perspective, my old MBP and new MBP felt exactly the
same… same OS, same desktop wallpaper, same Dock, all my same
files in their same folders, etc. Same deal with the iPhone except
moreso… the iPhone is almost entirely software and that was
nearly identical. And re: Snow Leopard, I haven’t noticed any
changes at all aside from the aforementioned absent plug-ins.
So, just having paid thousands of dollars for new hardware and
software, I have what feels like my same old stuff.
