    iBook Battery/Power cord

    Hello all, recently my iBook G4 ( 14" 1.42GHz, 512mb of ram) has been giving me some trouble so i reinstalled leopard last night and everything seamed fine and dandy. But after a while i got the same problem; my battery was not charging properly. The power cord would light up as usual "orange" to show that its charging but on the bottom of my iBook the battery indicator lights dont light up and its not charging! Im fairly certian that its not a problem with my battery because i have two of them and each wont charge; has anyone else experienced the same problem? do you think its my power cord or my batteries? Thanks in advanced -Justin

    Suggestions for new keyboard/mouse

    Like many others have said i think the best choice keyboard wise is the Aluminum Wireless Keyboard, but for a mouse i recommend The Kensington SlimBlade Trackball Mouse . Ive got the mouse on May 24th, 2008 and i haven't changed the batteries once, its highly responsive and has a 360 trackball like the mighty mouse but it dosent get gunk stuck in it, and its very customizable software wise.

  7. Hi i would appreciate your thoughts So i have finally saved up enough money to buy a shiny new mac but im stuck on which one to buy. I have enough for a Mac pro but would it be overkill? Right now i have a 1.42ghz iBook G4 512mb of ram running 10.5.1. At the moment im very interested in mastering CS3, Final cut express, Aperture/Lightroom, and possibly Logic. As you might have have guessed i cant run any of these programs very well on my iBook, ive tried CS2 on my iBook but it really struggled. So basically im just learning these programs. Would the iMac be able to handle these programs down the road? or would you suggest the Mac Pro. Keep in mind im only 16, So this kind of cash does not come easy and im looking for something that will last more than 5 years. Thanks -Justin

  14. If i purchase an external webcam or a used iSight will Photo-booth and iChat work on a Mac pro? On my iBook G4 leopard came with photo booth and it will launch and everything but it says no camera attached so i assume it would work if i had an external iSight? If anyone have any experience with this please post a response Thanks -Justin
  15. Just a random question, why are there two ethernet ports on the mac pro?

    My Leopard Menu Bar Isn't Transparent -- Whoo!

    Im running leopard on my 1.42 ghz G4 with 512mb of ram and i have the transparent menu bar... maybe some installs didn't include it or it is a hardware limitation and i just got lucky?

    Leopard with G4 chips?

    I have an 1.42ghz ibook G4 with 512 ram and leopard runns great! cover flow and minimizing is a bit laggy but other than that its epic. It makes my mac run great and make it feel new again and looks very slick. I highly recommend leopard to anyone that wants a new fast reliable operating system.

    Running Leopard Now

    Hey has anyone had any problems with mail? when i open it every time it crashes its fairly annoying but not devastating since im using mailplaine for gmail. Other then that 10.5 is very sweet i love the new look, and quicklook is very useful, the os is very snapy too makes my iBook G4 feel new again. Overall this is a great upgrade and i would suggest it to anyone with a mac wanting something fresh and new. -Justin

    iPod touch dilemma

    hi if you need a phone then get the iphone if you want an iphone without the phone get the ipod touch. I personaly have the touch im using it right now and i love it. So now that apple is alowing developers make native apps well the choices are even harder to make between the two.
  22. I know this seams like a stupid question but is my mac compatible with 10.5? i have a iBook G4 (Mid 2005) with 1.42ghz and 512mb ram. I was wondering because it says on apples site that the minimum is a 867MHz g4 with 512mb of ram.. will it run on my iBook? Many Thanks -Justin

    Laptop Keyboards

    i prefer the feel of the Macbook pro keyboards over the macbook because the mbp feels more sturdy and is easier to type on in my opinion. Don't get me wrong the macbook has a great keyboard but the mbp is slightly better and its more like the ones your used to so there wont be a learning curve for your hands. And the Mbp has backlighting a very cool yet practical feature that i would not pass up. So those are my two cents... get the mbp if you can but if not don't sweat it the macbook has a great keyboard too
  25. This happened to me as well i used Senuti http://www.fadingred.org/senuti/ and it worked great. Hope this helps
