My daughter uses a MacBook Pro at college.

When Grandpa offered to buy her a laptop for college, we called the department for her major and asked them if they were a Mac shop or Windows shop.

They said Mac, so we went Mac.

She loves it. Grandpa was surprised by how much it cost. :-)

Before Win95 launched I was a real Machead.

Less than a year ago I was using a G4-867 Quicksilver w/ OS 10.5 as my Garage Jukebox. In a fit of nerd rage, however (and to prove a point), I got rid of it. Replaced it with an old Athlon XP 2800 running Win7.

I now have an all PC home.

I just used a Big Mac to satisfy my hunger. Does that count?

Well, I volunteer at a place that gets a lot of computer donated. They refurbish them and give them away. If you take a class and do 10 hours of community service time, you get a full computer setup. I got the Mactell XB 203 from Craigslist and I got the Supermac C500e\180 from the place I volunteer. And I got the iMac from a friend who also gave me my HP tc1100 because he has a Macbook Pro and he doesn't need an old iMac or a Windows computer.

I left out the dead macs though. These all came from the same person.

2 dead Mac Plus', One smokes, the other lines on the screen when powered on.
A Preforma 400, power supply died on me while installing OS 7.6.
and a Powermac 6100\60, technically this one works, but the video doesn't though.

Also, Jam knows I'm 13 because anyone who participated in This knows.

I've got some sort of older mac out in the shed that literally fell off the truck. It is now being used to hold up a stack of plywood. Best use I have ever had for a mac.

I didn't know you were 13. When I was 13 I was busy chasing my first girls. I probably would have been better off with a computer if they had them then. They didn't, so I opted for the girls. They're softer and smell better, Ha !!!! Guess I got sidetracked again. Anyhow, I got a Mac from a college I was remodeling once. I took it to the thrift shop. Macs are overpriced in my opinion.

Computer interest today isn't the greatest, it is actually what I get harassed about at school.

I wouldn't worry about it. If it wasn't computers, it would be something else. Be yourself, in the end, it's all you have.
