I'm on a 12 year old hand-me-down MacBook Pro. It's dying. It can no longer be updated. BORING: It came with Garage Band, Microsoft AutoUpdate, Microsoft Document Connection, Microsoft Messenger, Microsoft Excel & Word, Time Machine, Remote Desktop Connection, iMovie, Photo Booth, Notes-Reminder-Calendar-Contacts, iPhoto, Safari, Messages, Mail, Dashboard, App Store, Launchpad, Finder. I use Dashboard occasionally for the calculator I use Mail everyday I use iPhoto I use Contacts and Calendar And a few files are on Word and Excel. I installed Chrome years ago. It fails to open pictures at an ever increasing rate. I looked at the largest Microsoft Surface machine and it appears to come with nothing installed. For example, I'd have to use a $20 per month subscription to play with my photos beyond cropping and mailing them. Someday I would like to edit some video clips. Is there a menu list somewhere for laptops or is functionality all based in the cloud such that subscriptions are now the norm?
