A slight introduction... Well, My name is Paul and I'm a Mac virgin for the most part. I've already got three gaming pc's I've built myself, so I am a bit of a geek already and have a good knowlage of computer hardware, Building and repairing. But I have been tiring of re-installing windows, Pesky viruses, Issue upon issue with drivers etc... Anyhoo, I have had a little look at some macs as my brother has a few and my brother in law has a macbook pro. Plus I've played around with different distros of linux. I visited my local stormfront and comfirmed my preference for macs. Sooo, Last crimbo I managed to score for my 7 year old boy a Powermac G3 with kb and mouse for £25 on ebay and it works just fine. ( Yep Im on a budget at the mo ) I cant remember which OS it's running but will find out once we get our own place and it's out of storage. Just the other day my bother, Who owns two Emac G4's offered to sell me one for £80, So, I couldn't resist pouncing on it, As it's in mint condition, Running 1.25ghz cpu, 1gb ram and a larger hdd ( Not sure on the size though. ). It's Running Leopard pretty smoothly plus he's bundled in some music/photography software, Which is very handy as I'm a DJ and going to Art college next year to do a digital photography course! I already plan on using my Logitech MX Revolution and the smaller Mac Bluetooth keyboard ( With dongle ) And will bbe getting an Apple Cinema Display at some point. Reason for the display - I will eventually upgrade to a minimac ( or mac mini??? ) or a Powermac. Maybe an imac and use the display as a secondary disp?! Storage wize I have two WD 1tb external drives and a Seagate 320gb external. Probably will get a third WD 1tb, So storage space definately WON'T be an issue lol! So does that all sound ok so far you mac experts? Please bare in mind, I am on a very tight budget as I'm also saving for a new car. Being a full time carer and disabled myself, I'm not on huge amounts of wonga lol. Also... Will the emac recognize and communicate easily with an iphone 3gs and a Blackberry Curve 8300? And lastly... Will my emac run photoshop without too much lag? All my thanks, Paul p.s. Will post a pic of said emac up in the pictures section as it is at my bros, And will then update once its here with me!
