...I’m now not that sure what to do now I’ve caught it.
I’ve had this Powerbook since Friday. It’s second hand and without the OS disk so at the moment it feels like it’s still someone else’s computer.
That didn’t stop me from emailing one of my PC advocate buddies a cheesy picture of me holding my thumbs up whilst clutching the book to my breast.
It’s tricky finding your way around when it’s someone else’s setup and you’re not that used to how Macs operate. Hopefully things will change when the new OS disk drops through the letterbox.
Still, I am looking forward to using Garage Band to tick off another one of my goals – writing a song.
I won an auction for a Powerbook on eBay at the weekend and I’m picking it up at the end of this week!
The only thing now is checking to see if it’s okay and that it is the spec that was advertised; plus, that all the internal widgets work.
Does anyone know what screens I would look at to check processor speed, drive capacity, RAM etc etc?
Cheapskate that I am, I’ve decided that I’m going to buy one off eBay. The only problem is that I’m after a 12” with Bluetooth and Airport Extreme (and if it’s got a Superdrive even better), so my options aren’t really that great – especially as I don’t want to spend that much (at least whilst I’ve still got the Windows XP laptop).
At Christmas I was seriously thinking of getting a 12” Powerbook with superdrive, but decided to get an widescreen HP instead because it was half the price and had an built-in SD card reader.
But I still hanker after the Mac. Woe is me.
