Thread: Your Hardware Specs
01-11-2003, 04:32 PM #1
Gonna put this here, because it doesn't really belong to any of the other forums...
What are you using for hardware/software?
I am using an iMac 17" G4 800Mhz with 768 MB of RAM. I have 10.2.3 I believe, and it is pretty cool. I am starting to get used to working with a Mac, as I am an NT/2000 sysadmin, it is kinda weird to work with OSX.
Like I said in an a post in the OSX Games section, I will probably buy a tower next time for the upgradablility of it. I would like to upgrade my video card, and be able to shove more ram into. If I could get 2 gig of PC2100 into this thing it would probably scream. But right now, it has its times when it isn't so responsive. But I am getting used to that. It is a good trade off for stability A few seconds here, don't need to reboot there... It's worth it.
Also, they keyboard is incredibly different. I have one of the white pro keyboards. The keys are so soft that I sometimes slide off the key I'm looking for and hit the one next to it. I hope they come out with a lighted pro keyboard, like the keyboards on the new PowerBooks!
Finally, where is the damn Insert key? Or is there one? I'm so used to using VI and hitting Insert where, well where I want to insert something.Emrys
