hello mac-isti! i have this beautiful macbook pro, 2 ghz... and i love it and it's fine and good. the file settings were transfered from my ibook g4. and i was initially a little concerned about that (i usually like to review all my settings when transfering to a new mac to streamline things) but it's worked pretty well and who am i to argue? ... and in using dashboard... i still get the old ibook's was of viewing them, they appear from the foreground as if falling onto a surface... not through the ripple effect. i have a new macbook. i want the ripple effect! i thought the ibook couldn't pull it off 'cause of it's video card.... is there a way to change these settings? thanks, r.
