Thread: Made the switch, well sorta
12-02-2003, 10:02 PM #1jtomlinsonGuestMade the switch, well sorta
I just received my new iBook in the mail and I must say I really do like it. I have been using PC's for about 10 years now and figured I would try something new. I don't ever plan on giving up my PC's, because they are how I earn my living. But I do love learning and playing with something new, so I bought myself this iBook for christmas.
One question I do have, does anyone know how difficult it is to install an Airport wireless card and more ram into the iBook? I didn't get the wireless card pre-installed because I don't need it right away, but would like to use wireless eventually with my already wireless home network. And I didn't get the ram preinstalled because I found quite a few websites with cheaper prices.

Yes, installing an Airport card is simple. Getting to the RAM slot requires you to remove the Airport bracket, however. Have a small screwdriver handy, and keep an eye on those little screws.

First post here - I also bought my first Mac over the weekend (12" iBook) and think it's great (even though I don't know what the heck I'm doing yet!)
Just confirming that the airport card is really easy to install (I bought one the day after the iBook). Literally takes a few minutes (it took longer to refit the keyboard properly than it did to install the card - mainly cos I'm a heavy handed!)
Had it up-and-running with the wireless DLink 624 router within 5 more minutes (of which most was spent trying to figure out how to enter the 128-bit encryption key - again I wasn't paying attention!)
Go for it - the wireless stuff is excellent!
