    I've got an old tibook 400mhz that I love because Apple replaced just about everything on it -- hd, logic board, top case, keyboard, bottom case, etc., right before it ran out of warranty a few months ago. I put 1 gig of memory in it and a new Hitachi 5400 40gig hd and usb enclosed the new Apple 10gig drive. I was going to upgrade the CPU at Daystar to 550 but just not worth the trip.

    Anyway, I am doing a lot of in person interviews for work and am SICK of the little microcassette recording situation I have.

    I tried to use some audio transcription program I bought at Frys "Via Voice" but got nowhere.

    Do you guys know of any microphone recording set up I can plug into the tibook and use it as an audio recorder? Would make life a LOT easier for me! Thanks in advance.

    Your TiBook doesn't have an audio input, so you would need to get something like the Griffin iMic, which costs $40, and then get a cheap little PC microphone to plug into that. On the software side, any audio recording software will do - Sound Recorder X, Sound Studio, I think even iMovie would work to record audio...

    None of this is speech-to-text software like ViaVoice is, but it will get sound into your computer and let you save it.
