I finally have my finances in order to purchase a Powerbook (After MWSF). I have few questions that I would like to have answered, so here it goes I am planning on getting a powerbook for mixing and composing some house music. I was thinking of getting an ibook to save some dough, but I met someone who works at the apple store who told me I would want to go with a powerbook because it has the audio in while the ibook only has a mic..... Any thoughts on this? Secondly, I am a proficient windows users, and as anyone who is proficient in windows knows, there is a lot you have to do to windows in order to lock it down when you first start up a box. Having said that is there any site that is less forum and more tech oriented with regards to securing OS X out of the box. Or Have my years of using MSs OS just made me way to paranoid about security? Then there is the topic of Antivirus I am in disbelief every single time a read a post from you members who states that you do not use antivirus Are you for real? What do you paranoid people use? The only AV I have seen is from Symantec I did see a release for Mcafee, but it didnt appear that they supported AV for the latest release of panther (so it doesnt count in my book) I guess I have answered my own question here but still, are you not worried about someone developing something for the Mac platform? And dont you think you might be setting yourself up for getting something nasty because you think that the probability of getting a virus is so very low? And Can someone please give me a link to anything that will have good information on how to use the CLI so that I can do basic connectivity tests on a NW without having to run to a windows machine and go to a command prompt. I am sure I can terminal, but would really like to know what commands to use when I find the terminal on my new computer. BTW, I am not going to VPC just so I can get to a command prompt either Anyways, Sorry to make this post so long Any advice and other knowledge will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Kdawg.
