Well, he's been using Windows since the Apple II he had broke way back when, and as of last Monday, he's maccy . I convinced him to get an Apple laptop for his desktop replacement after both his desktop PC and his Dell laptop completely broke (strangely, within two days of eachother). We decided on the low-end iBook, since we're a bit tight on money, but I got extra RAM (third-party, of course), to make it a total of 768MB. He loves it, and I was afraid the screen was going to be a bit too small for his eyes (He's 62 now), he says its perfect. Most of the time the system is connected to his 21" CRT, and his external keyboard and mouse. We've also managed to get rid of cable clutter. Before, we didn't know what we were going to do about the lack of more then two USB ports on the iBook (he needs one for a printer, Palm, keyboard/mouse, and digital camera), so we got one USB hub and put it on the ground, therefore there are only three cables going up to the desk, the single USB cable, the VGA cable, and the speaker cable. Of course, there's the power cable but thats a given. He's managed to learn OS X pretty well, except he's still confused about the whole Apple-Q to quit, and not by pressing the little red button. Oh, damn Windows! He's finally gotten rid of all his PC's, as we've adapted all his applications to work on the Mac. Albeit, we did need to install Virtual PC for Microsoft Money, but thats just a minor setback! Bottom-line, we have a new member of the Mac family, and he loves it .
