    I have a PC. My last district was PC. I'm going to an Apple district.

    This summer I wanted to scan things I made prior to owning a computer and papers I no longer have stored digitally and make PDF files. My hubby is convinced I won't be able to open them at my new school. I think I will be able to do so since it is a PDF.

    So, if I am right, I'm not making dinner or washing dishes all next week. Who is cooking next week?

    You just need something like adobe reader, which they have for mac. Guess your hubby's going to be cooking :)

    I open PDFs on my Mac all the time in Preview. I'm pretty sure you could download Adobe for Mac if you wanted to do complicated stuff.

    Dream big on the menu.

    Not only will the Mac open PDFs, it will open pretty much any format you save in. I have yet to encounter any widely used format on the PC that a mac program could not open. You'll even find Microsoft Office on the mac, and it works pretty much the same as you'd come to expect on the PC. It'll be an easy transition.

    I have a MacBook and an iPad and both open PDFs all the time! Think up some big fancy dinners! ;)

    I've never had a problem going between my PC and Mac either. Enjoy the dinners and dish free week!
