    Used MacBook

    I'm thinking of buying my wife a used (not refurb as I want to save more $$$) MacBook. Anyone have thoughts/recommendations on this, where to buy, etc.? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Used MacBook

    THis is what I've seen too, either MacBooks hold their value at an incredible level (possible, I know) or folks have no idea of the discount they have to take on used products. I guess if they sell at the listed prices they're right. Anyone have any experience with www.gainsaver.com? Thanks again for all the info! -=Tim=-

    iWork and Passwords

    Is there a way to password protect an iWork file? I know that it won't allow me to open password-protected MS Office files (I have to save them without a password and then open) but is there a way to do it once I've saved the Pages or Numbers file? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Configuring Memory

    I'm both replacing some existing memory and adding 4 GB more to my Mac Pro. Here is my current configuration, what would be the best place to add the additional 2x2GB? -=Tim=-

    Memory Weirdness?

    My Mac Pro (2 x 3GHz, 5GB) was running kinda slow and I was considering buying more memory, I'm doing more video stuff so I didn't feel too bad about it. I went to "About This Mac" and then onto System Profiler and instead of my 5 gigs of memory I saw this: ...so I turned the Mac Pro off, unplugged it and pulled the two risers and switched the memory within each riser, ie the 1 GB's with each other and (just to be consistent) the 512 MB's with each other and rebooted and its back looking like this: Any ideas what might have caused this? Do I need to manually go into "About this Mac" every day to check on this? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Memory Weirdness?

    Return of the problem! However I opened the Mac up and then turned it on and I'm seeing a red light on the Crucial 4GB card. I switched its 2 2GB banks and restarted and the light went off and its, correctly, reporting 4GB from that riser! Too strange. -=Tim=-

    Office 2008 vs iWork

    My Office 2004 is dragging painfully slow under Leopard on my Mac Pro and I'm thinking of upgrading but the question is iWork or Office 2008. My needs are pretty simple, reading and writing simple .doc and .xls files. Reading the occasional slideshow and creating the very occasional slideshow. Thoughts? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Office 2008 vs iWork

    Is there a way to script so that when you save an iWork file it also Exports an Office compatible version as well? Just a thought. -=Tim=-

    Mac/PC Formats

    I need to store some data from my Mac on a volume on a network (Time Machine). The volume is PC formatted. I know there's one PC format that's works great for Mac can someone jog my mind what it is and what restrictions there are on the other format? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Stopping Calendar

    First solution worked. Thanks!!! -=Tim=-
  19. I started sync'ing my iCal to my iPod and realized that I didn't want it. I turned off the sync'ing in iTunes but the old data is still on the iPod. Is there a way to clean the data off my iPod? thanks! -=Tim=-

    Memory Weirdness?

    Its stayed at 5GB for a few days but I'll be keeping my eye on it. Thanks to Graham for the pointer to iStat, I'm using it for memory, fan and heat tracking! -=Tim=-

    Leopard and iBook 1.33

    A friend has an iBook 1.33 14" maxed out with memory. He'd like to run Leopard on it for Time Machine (and buy a Time Capsule). Will Leopard run satisfactorily on this config? Thanks! -=Tim=-
