So, planning to go geeky? and shift to a beautiful Macbook from the old microsoft PC? This might be a good time for you to select from a wide range of mac books 🙂
And if you are a complete business person and using Microsoft outlook for emailing, scheduling or saving business contacts you should keep in mind that there is no version of Outlook available for Macintosh laptops.
Usually microsoft outlook is used to send and store emails, contacts, calender schedules and is still one of the favorite email programs being used all over by windows users. So shifting from a PC to Mac will make you worry thinking about how to move the outlook files, but there are options like a couple below –
– One of the easy options is to use a program such as Outlook2Mac which does a great job in shifting files between outlook of windows and the mail programs available in Mac. Outlook2Mac just exports and adjusts your information to the Mac mail programs but you will have to first import the outlook files from your PC to mac manually. It has a feature to perfectly adjust the data to the available or nearest available version of the mail programs of Mac.
Programs that can receive data through Outlook2Mac are Apple Mail, Address Book, iCal, Microsoft Entourage.
– Microsoft isnt lagging to not develop something adjustable for Mac, so they too released a Personal information management program that is available in Mac, and is called Entourage.
It was developed as a part of Office 2008 for Mac Suite available with other MS office programs like Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
I actually didnt ever use Outlook on my PC but when i switched to a new Mac, i tried the software Entourage using my friends info, and it worked pretty easily. So now no worrying about the file shifting, one of the above will be surely helpful.
