MAC ATTACK - A New Ongoing Series


By no means, will I promise our new ongoing series (similiar to Random Tid Bits) to be weekly, because I would just be digging myself a huge hole. However, I bought my third Apple Computer a little over a month ago. This is the third Apple Computer, I have had. So, the point of this little weekly series is to showcase some of the functions and applications of a computer that many critics are praising for its reliability, innovation, and operating system. And I want to talk about these things.

Let me give you a brief history of my relationship with Apple. 1995, I enroll as a freshman at Azusa Pacific University. I received a check from my grand parents for a new computer. So, I purchase my first Apple computer from the school's in house Mac Store for $1,400.00. It was the biggest purchase of my life. I had the computer for about 3 years, and it was pretty reliable. However, by my senior year, I had decided (not militantly) to switch over to a PC. I purchased my first custom desktop from a small I.T. firm, and basically it crashed and burned every time I turned it on. Numerous software re-installs and a full year later, I tossed it in the garbage for my first Gate way desktop. I had this computer for about a year and a half before it started to degrade as well, then I moved to another gateway, which I had for another year or so, AdWare and SpyWare purchases and numerous gunk and virus later, and I had had it. Around 2004, after battling bad PC's for about five years, I was looking for a solution, a secure solution. Around this time the IPOD was exploding. Everyone was buying up the 3G Ipods, and I of course wanted one. As I looked at the Ipod, I started looking back at my old friends at Apple. I fell in love with the Titanium PowerBook G4, so in 2004 with a little help from a tax return, I purchased the 12 inch Powerbook G4. It served me well for four years, and I had a total of 1 system crash while using it, which I simply fixed by pulling the battery out. So, let's review, in a five years pan with the PC Platform, I burned through three computers, cashing out once the computers became unusable. In a seven year span, with Apple, I only switched out to upgrade equipment, and went through two computers. So, what would my next purchase be? Of course the Mac Book Pro 15" with Multi Touch Screen. So, far I have loved the computer, and I am finding new little tricks every day. So, stay tuned. I'll let you know more about MAC and what they come up with, or I dig out of a Utility Folder.
