    hee hee hee catchy title eh?

    Let me introduce you to my friend Gabe. He used to hate macs, he even video taped him and his friend Todd breaking a old Mac. Poor mac... Well last year when I first met him in High School we found out that I loved Macs and he simply hated them. I slowly made him respect Macs and then he started to fall in love with Mac OS X (who wouldn't) Well now that one year has passed we are back to school (agian! :rolleyes: )Well a couple weeks ago my friend Gabe wanted to get a laptop, he would only really use it for text and he wanted to bring it to class and type. After many PC deals I found him a sweet mac! It was at Mac Of All Trades (www.macofalltrades.com) I looked under the PowerBook section and there it was a wonderful PowerBook 540c. Once having one I know it was a great mac. Well he loves it! He has Mac OS 8 on it and it runs fine, he got it for only $80 bucks with shiping and handling, they said the batteries were dead but we fixed'em hee hee.

    Now for my friend Steve! Having the same name as my friend is wierd. Try calling someone and say "Hi this is Steve, is Steve there?" It feels wierd! :) lol Well anyway... My friend loved macs ever since I showed my iBook to him. He thinks it is great! Well he decided he didn't want a mac, but he would change his mind soon enough. After his Windows XP Gateway PC started acting up, he tryed my Mac. He liked it, I showed him Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. He also loved Unreal Tournament, hee hee. Well he found an iBook on eBay, it was the first iBook ever made, well the first model that is. ;) Well he bought it for around $550, it had all the original disks and packaging. I think it's a good deal. Now he is waiting for his iBook to come in the mail. He is so excited just like my friend Gabe was when he was waiting for his PowerBook 540c to come in the mail. Well I think I have converted two PC users, although Gabe says he still loves his Windows XP machine, although it has a Mac OS X Aqua theme and I gave him the latest Aqua Backround for his PC. I think my friends will buy more Macs over the years. My mission is complete! HAHAHAHA! :D :cool: (sorry for spelling errors, I can't spell!!!)

    I have a friend at school that is on the verge o buying his first Mac. I've been telling him about the Mhz Myth and why OS X kick ans. His big concern however is that he wants to run WordPerfect. I told him that he could run Word, but he said that he hates Microsoft and that is one of the key reasons he wants to switch. I didn't know what to tell him so I come to you guys. What do I do about all of his WordPerfect docs? Will Appleworks open them? He said that he would be OK with Appleworks, but wants to preserve all of his old documents? Help me help him. ;)
