Hey everyone! I have an idea I've been toying around with for a few months. To give a little background my Mom is having some computer issues and will need a new one soonish. Since she doesn't have a lot of money for a new one, nor does she need anything too fancy, I've considered giving her one of my old MBP's. But before I do that it'll need some TLC. So the question is, is it worth the time and money to get my '08 MBP in working order or should she just buy a cheapish PC? For starters I know it needs a new power cord, but no big deal there. Is there a quick and easy way to run some diagnostics that will tell us what if any parts need attention? In an ideal world I'd like to give her MBP fully updated, from Leopard to Yosemite. Of course, she's never used Mac before, so out of curiosity, would it be possible for the MBP to run a Windows drive natively (i.e. not Bootcamp)? Further more, is this something that I could do myself or would it be best to take in somewhere? Thanks guys! No pressure here, just an idea that's been tossed around a little bit.
