    You can run any PC operating system on a Mac if you just buy this program:

    My laptop has been great the last two years.
    No problems at all.
    Meanwhile my Dell PC has been a constant headache for the past year.
    My only complaint is their is no right click (you hold control and click instead).
    Otherwise I find Macs are more user friendly.


    You can't go wrong with Mac!

    I don't know what kind of macbook you have or if mine is different but in the system preferences you can change it to have a right click.
    You have more than one button to click?
    I just have one big one under my touch pad.
    I was gonna take this down another path but didn't want to derail a good thread.

    No I just have one bat under the track pad but you set 2 fingers on the track pad and click that bar.




    No matter how bad my life gets at least I m not a Packer fan.

    Re: Looking for info on Laptops..

    Just recieved this mail from a member of "Freecycle" WH, CT...



    I have a laptop.
    It is an IBM thinkpad.
    It is running Windows 95.
    That is how old it is.
    I know it does not have wireless internet and to be honest I never tried.
    My wife used it for school, solely for word processing.
    If you are interested it is all yours.

    Craig





    I left him a messege, and will call back again, but is this type of laptop what I"m looking for.
    I want to run a cord from where my computer is now and use my service from Comcast.
    I"ll be in my bedroom most the time, only 12 feet away...Figure I can lay the laptop on my chest.




    Any comments on the mail and laptop offered?




    It sure is nice of the guy to offer it to me.






    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Ned, PM me.

    I can get you one at no cost I think.

    I will check Monday.

    Its about 2 yrs old, a Dell.

    Woulda been Ultra's but I got him a diff machine.
    I just need to see if we still have it.

    Wireless, etc.


    Depending on specs for that one, though, most likely it will be a little slow, but you can surf and check email I am sure just fine.

    My wife suggested today that we buy a laptop for me to use, seeing I'm going to be bed bound for the next 3 months.






    If anyone has one for sale or knows of a friend trying to sell one, I'de like to read about it here.
    Also, any and all recommendations about buying a used or new laptop would be very helpfull.






    Would be really nice if all we had to do is buy an extra long cord also ( about 12 ft ) to reach from my service I have now to the laptop itself.
    If this will even work at all.






    Thanks gang.







    ned
    PM me your address.
    I will send you a cord that will reach a bit more than that my friend.
    You don't mind if the cable is blue in color do you?

    ;D




    marr, that went over my head sorry to say.
    What do you meen?







    Thanks fof the leads so far guys..
    I have a 75' (might be 50') cord that is blue.
    I will send it to you if you PM your address (house).
    Oh yeah, I have a cord that exceeds cat5/eTH specs in length.
    Booyah!

    We are all mac now, and yes you can right click.
    Just change preferences.

    If you have the ching and a bit a patience, you will never regret the change.
    If you MUST have windows, you can run it in parallel with Mac using Parallels or VMWare.
    But if you just use web surfing, a little word processing, and email, you really are missing out by not experiencing a headache free life on the mac.
    Safari is great, and Firefox 3 is schwweeeet.


    This comes from an original Apple IIE guy way back, through Mac, switched to Windows for a while until Apple got their head out of their ass, and made Macs with Intel and OSX based on Unix at which time I switched back.
    Great systems.
    That matters nothing to the end user, as it "just works".
    For us gearheads, its fun to know though.

    Basically, I go where I get the best for my dollar.
    That's where its at today.
    Too many hidden costs in Windows and the machines that run it.

    I agree with Webby! I just got a MacBook Pro during Christmas break, and now that I have the time Leopard will be installed, and I'll set it up the way I want. Great computer once you get use to them.

    I agree also, we got our iMac 6 months ago. It took me awhile because I was out of my comfort zone...but way cool.
