    Wireless Printers

    What printer do you have?

    Wireless Printers

    I need to buy a printer and I wanted to get an all-in-one inkjet. I have a linksys wireless router with 3 ethernet ports open. I wanted to know what models to look at. I obviously need it to be Mac compatible (I have no Windows computers on my home network now, but a may add one at some point). I like the idea of total wireless printing, but I hear a lot complains of it not working right/well/at all. I can plug it into the router with ethernet and print from the notebooks wirelessly if possible. My router doesn't have a USB port, but I would be willing to replace with one that does, because it is old and 802.11g. My new notebook (MBP) is 802.11n, everything else is 802.11b/g (PBG4, iPhone, XBox with a linksys gaming adapter, Nintendo Wii & Nintendo DS). I don't want to plug it in via USB to the tower and share it to the notebooks because I would have to have the tower on and awake all the time. Here are the computers I plan to print from: 2 notebooks w/Wifi (MBP and PB-G4 both with Mac OS X 10.5.2) 1 tower (G4 QuickSlilver with Mac OS X 10.4.11) Here are the two HP printers I looked at: HP Officejet J6480 HP C7280 Photosmart HP C7250 Photosmart Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, Gary

    Use Windows XP from Virtual PC with Boot Camp

    What 800 #? It didn't work (Product ID invalid), so I called 800-642-7676 and they told me the Key was valid and the could not give me a new code.

    Use Windows XP from Virtual PC with Boot Camp

    It is not a Dell disc, it is from a WinTel built by a local shop. It is not machine specific, just an OEM Windows XP Service Pack 2. Thanks for the replies, I was hoping someone had done before. I will try it when I get some time and post back if it works.
  5. Here is my question. I have a full version of Windows XP Pro SP2 which is installed on a WinTel machine. Can I install Windows XP Pro SP2 for the Disc I got with my Wintel, but use the Product Key form my copy of VirtualPC. Seems like it should be legit and work, has anyone tried to do this? Again, I own 2 Product Keys (1 OEM form my Wintel and 1 from VirtualPC 7). I know you can extract the Windows XP Pro SP2 image from the VirtualPC Disc and re-burn it, but it seems like a waste since I have a disc already. Gary

    iMac or Dell?

    I have looked and some have been ported, but not all. She also gets a toys that are Windows only (USB Crap that hooks into the computer - Funkey's is on that pop to mind)

    iMac or Dell?

    Have you run Boot Camp with Windows XP to play games? Also, how would a MacMini(intergraded video card) run Windows XP with Boot Camp playing games.

    iMac or Dell?

    Hi, I am a Mac guy, I have a G4 733MHz Mac downstairs for the family computer. It is time to replace it, but my daughter wants a Dell to play games not available for Mac OS X. I thought I might just get an iMac with Boot Camp and Parallels and that would cover all bases. 1. In Boot Camp is the iMac a PC capable of doing everything a Dell PC is? 2. Can Parallels run games well? 3. Windows Vista or Windows XP? 4. What are some problems with this solution, if any? Thanks!

    Graphic Card Question

    I have a 4x AGP slot with a GeForce 3 graphics card. I'm trying to get some extra performance for my 3D programs. I want a new graphics card for my type of machine but wasn't sure if the newer cards would overheat my system, or is that not even an issue. What do you think would be my best option between Nvidia or ATI? If you're not sure, would you happen to know a site I could check or Forums I could search to get the answer? Thirdly, is it even worth it at this point, since the card performance is still based on my processor speed? I have a Quicksilver Dual 800 mhz G4 Tower.

    Dictionary shortcut

    I use this shortcut (Control + Command + D) all the time, however it doesn't work for me in Camino. It is one thing I really miss from Safari.

    Show off your Desktop

    That is the site I couldn't remember. Thanks Skippy!
  14. I did a quick search to find and download Quicksilver, because I was also wondering what the hype was about. Anyway, I saw the video and thought you might find it helpful. It is a tutorial (This is part 1 of 3) about Quicksilver, everything from install to basic functions to advanced functions. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBvFUhTqKK4 Hope this helps, Gary http://www.gwcoughlin.com
