Re: Permanent Greeting, part two

Just bought a Macbook, first time Mac user. So far I'm enjoying it, but I'm still at the configuration phase. Configuring Firefox as we speak.

Going to need to buy iWork soon as well. Boy do I hate configuration phases .

I lost my job two months ago so I used the last of the pay I got from selling all their stuff off after about 500 unsuccessful resume sendouts to buy two broken macbooks, and the parts to fix them. Sold those, bought more, and started developing good relationship with parts vendors. Now I get like 6 a week..

I decided to screw with it while watching tv or playing a game, to check some sites with during commercials/loading, ad it's a pretty cool machine. Runs logic from work nicely too. I now use them as much as my desktop even around the house.

I'm considering one for myself but since I have at least 2-3 here at any given time, that'd make no sense. I wipe the user account as I get it and before I sell it so I don't ever bother to screw around with preferences or anything, bit I have to admit, it is quite the little machine.

I still have no clue how to use half the stuff on it. After having an Inspiron 8200 for years, which was a total piece of junk, this is a welcome addition!

Shouldn't the fridge have been moved next to the desk?

Hi everyone. I just bought my first Mac. It is an older Powerpc G4 500mhz with Mac OS 10. It is a nice learner machine. I plan on upgrading it soon with a better video card and processor. I have been an avid PC user and PC tech for many years. I see the justification on having both systems. I don't see the Mac as a replacement for my PC or vice versa, but they do compliment each other very nicely. I also use my iphone like it is going out of style.
