Here's my situation: My dilemma is twofold. 1- My ibook G4's screen got broken when it was knocked over. I have had this computer for about 4 years so it has a lot of files that are irreplaceable and I would like to retrieve. What is the best way to do so? Is target disk mode available without a duel-ended fire wire cord? What's the best device to store all these files on? Cd's? 2- Since my old computer is unusable, I am looking for a new one, but my price range is limited. Does anyone have any thrifty recommendations for me? (I want to stay in the mac world of course.) I also considered the mac mini, but wasn't sure what the consensus on these machines was. Any help is greatly appreciated, and as you can tell, I'm not extremely computer literate, so if you could be as detailed as possible with any advice/instructions it would help me out a lot. Thanks!
