It's how one's experience benefit their needs and how comfortable they are with the particular OS.

Okay, I am upgrading my MB to 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD... When I change the hard drive, do I need to buy Leopard again? Is there a way to get all my files transferred over?

Snow Leopard comes out in September. It'll cost only $29 to upgrade, but your Mac has to be Intel-based.

That's if you already have Leopard. How would I transfer everything to my new Hard Drive?

When I got a new HDD on my old laptop, I just used an external HDD to transfer everything, then transferred
it again to my new internal HDD.

Man I want a Mac.... My money is so bad I can't even Pay Attention... Been lookin for an old Imac G5 for music.... Mac Mini... Macs are so much money.... Maybe on Black Friday I may get a good deal...

I play around with making music and I got a lil buzz from friends telling me to get a mac... Money is tooooo funny... Any insight as to where to get a used mac.. My location is literally 5-10 minutes away from the Staples Center.... Can I get some leads?

Apple is having a buy a Mac, get a free iTouch offer right now. Just an FYI.

For used Macs, my friends use this site: http://www.powermax.com/
They're great. Great products and service.

Look on Craigslist. Good deals on there...

Did it put the OS on the new HDD as well?

Macs = worse hardware(it's same stuff but older versions and revisions) with better OS. Overpriced a ton

That is why I just run a hacked kernel on my PC; OS X on PC ftw

Why do people call Windows Based computers a PC? A PC is a personal computer. A Mac is a PC...


Those commercials are funny but I guess Apple wants to be separated from the rest.

Talk to him. Before I got my Macbook I was looking at his and he said if I paid him that day, he would lower the price to 600. You could really get a good deal there. No doubt.

$800 for that? You can get a brand new last model Macbook for $999, and it comes with everything the new
Macbooks come with, except the aluminum casing, glasspad, and high-quality screen. The hardware is the same.

Like I said, he's been trying to sell if forever. When I talked to him, he was going to sell it for 600 right there. I much rather have the BlackBook than the White ones. Or you could also get the Late '08 Aluminum(what I have)... Everywhere cut the prices on them by a few hundred. Still a great deal.

Same here. I got my a few weeks ago. It's great isn't it? I love how clean it is... Did you get the 2.4Ghz or the 2.0?
