About 2 get a powerbook, a few question
I am getting the 17" powerbook 1ghz Aluminum on the 27th (A late xmas present) and wanted to know a few things
Any software you would recomend? i have had a mac b4 but only owned it for a month (the 12" was just too small for me) I mainly use my computer for word processing and media a little gaming. Right now I am really into desktop enhancements so if you know of anything that lets you customize the dock more Plz LMK.
Im getting it used (i know) anything i should look for in terms of defects or damage that might be common?
what updates should i be looking for (besides Tiger) i think the os thats comming with it is jaguar
anyway thanks for you imput in advance

$1300 is an excellant deal for a 17" powerbook! I have yet to see one of those puppies in person...I fear if I do I will fall in love.
