Oops, didn't see you last post Penguin, disregard my modem commment:O
Typical, I've been on this thing for all of 15 minutes and I've already downloaded and am running Firefox! Not quite sure how I installed it or even if I did, I've got a lot to learn about this OS.
cool, lol yeah when i first used mac osx i didnt know what to do, i still dont know how to use it peoperly
Use it properly?, the thing is literally fool proof, anyone can use it after a 5 minute walkthough, just get yourself a better mouse. The nice benifit is just about no spyware/viruses, or driver crap, like ppl have said, it just runs. Then again Linux is almost the same way but you can't have it all.
yeah my friend has never had and viruses, spyware or driver trouble, he just leaves it on 24/7 always connected to the internet and is always downloading things, never once had a virus...
(i did mean to say properly not peoperly)
so its a plug and play fortress basically? lol
hehe, yeah pretty much, the only problems is pretty much whatever you plug in will cost more than the whole shabang sadly. That's the rtouble with Macs.
but at least you wont have to worry about anyone getting your hard drives ip address
yeah and with mac's i think they use that fancy MGb Ram (thats mega-gigabytes for those who dont know) lmao
wouldnt that be a terabyte?
or is it a 1k of gb?
yeah but like the person said MGb mega-gigabytes which is a terabyte but they dont know that lmao, can you imagine a terabyte of ram?
hey supposedly you can have 16 billion gigs on the athlon 64 line
i think it was 16 billion maybe 6
yeah thats right, only memory hasent expanded that far, but soon memory will overplace hard drives, right now there are memory hard drives such as flash memory, they work much faster, and have more potential
yeah i read about solid state hard drives, one was made and it was like 170Gb cost $44,000 though so more for army use i think
gates prob has 8 on RAID 10 lol
lol yeah an Über computer
Stay on track dudes How about posting some pics Penguin?
Ugh, I can't help it, flash memory huh, that does have potential, imagine have like 50 card slots where you can just keep poping them in and it automatically raids the lot. So far 4 gigs is the max for flash memory and I think 6 or 8 is as far as those micro drives go. Just think back in '98 a gig would cost you about $46 I belive, now it's under 1 in many cases. The best hard drives are for severs, 15,000rpm, damn that must be loud. Though raided raptors must be sweet too.
Wow, this thread has gotten quite a lot of mileage so far!
I'd love to except, rather sadly, I dont, own a camera at the moment. I've about fifteen computers in various states, four monitors, an obscene amount of spare hardware, but no printer and no camera. Maybe I'll post a few screenshots once I've gotten it tweaked a bit.
BTW, can you plug a standard PC IDE hard drive into the Mac? It *looks* like you can as it uses the same connections and the ribbon fits the PC hard drive but does it use the same technology?
Should be able to, the same brands make apple and PC drives anyway. I can't really see why not at least. Ram is a different and sad story however
