    Like the rest, I am a newbie.

    I was blessed with the gift of owning my first MacBookPro, in 2009. Unfamiliar with computers, I have been terrified to use it much. I’ve had every iPhone since the iPhone 4, and would never want any other brand. Approaching 50YO, I wish to learn so much more and really understand what the Mac products offer and take full advantage!

    I think with my lack of wisdom I will remain just a quiet reader, allowing those all knowing to educate me.

    May we all feel enlightened without ever being made to feel foolish.
    Thank you!
    From Tulsa, Oklahoma!

    "I've been alive forever, and I wrote the very first song. I put the words and the melo... "
    Wait. Wrong lyric. I meant to say:
    I've been lurking here forever. Like every time I need to make an upgrade purchase, I check in.
    As my avatar indicates, I possess a 4,1->5,1 8-core early 2009. And that'll be my prime focus.
    I'm mainly a CS (now CC) creative and I've always been just far enough behind the curve to ask: "Is photoshop really supposed to take this long? I should've stayed with System 7 and Quark 3.2."
    So, yeah. Old enough to be underwhelmed by each new, bloaty, tedious, time-sucking "upgrade" thrown at us by our silicon masters.
    But naive enough to stay engaged.

    Hello all. I’ve browsed here in the past, but returned last week when the new Air came out to attempt to confirm my strong feeling that it was time for me to get a new iPad :) I read various threads and in the end went for a refurbished 10.5 Pro (fingers crossed on the white spot issue). It came yesterday and so far I love it. I also got an Apple Pencil and I’m just amazed by what it’s possible to do with the iPad, the pencil and Notability. Just fabulous :)

    I seem to be approaching ancient - not sure how or when that happened! I’m a very enthusiastic computer user, but not technical in any sense. My desktop is Windows both at work and at home, but I absolutely love my iPad (and iPhone), and use it more than anything else (except for my MP3 player - audiobook addiction).

    I’ve already had a lot of help here - thank you very much for that. It’s very much appreciated :)

    Hello! I've gone from Samsung for most of my life and then I tried the Pixel 3 and I think I'm done with Android. Samsung's can barely last a few years before the software implodes and Pixel 3's performance has been kind of jank.

    I'm thinking the next gen of iPhone might be for me now!

    Hi Folks, Taff here....just wanted to say "Hello" and say that i am glad to be here. Retired now and spending far too much time trying to learn about the older Mac Pros, specifically the 2,1, so will be trawling the forums to see what gems i can find. Thank you for having me...

    I'm a newbie as being a registered member of the macrumors site. I've owned several Apple products since 2008, my 1st Mac Pro 1,1 was purchased in 2010 with Snow Leopard, 1 TB HDD, base line processors,2 optical drives, the very basic video card, it had minimal memory - 6 GM of various modules. Since that time I have done several upgrades. 2,1, 3GHz Quad-core Intel Xeon processors, SeaGate 1TB for OS / programs, Samsung SSD 250GB for Windows10 bootcamp, WD Black 1TB HDD x2, Pioneer BD-RW BDR-2090, ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card, replaced memory to 16GB DDR2. Currently running 2 displays. That was the easy stuff to do. Biggest challenge I ran into was the install of my current OS Mavericks 10.9 which I still currently use with no issues. My plan is to get a little more life span out of my Mac Pro with the install of El Capitan 10.11. I note there are 2 members that have worked hard developing the procedure. I could use all the help that is available.

    I have been modifying computers since... we'll have stories later. For now, I've written a few kernel drivers (RSX-11,AT&TUNIX SVR4, Linux, Windows) and I like to make things work.

    My latest project is a gifted iMac 24" A1200 with Nvidia 7300GT that I would like to run OS X El Capitan. I'm seriously considering using the MacPostFactor 2.0.1 tool.

    Let me know soon if this is folly, and if no, which kexts I should download and activate.
