The next Mac is.....

Well friends, I finally have bought another Macintosh!!  It's taken almost a year since I bought my TAM, but there is a new Mac in the house.  I had been looking for an older Mac to serve as a computer for my mom.  She is intimidated about using my iMac, even though I set up an account for her on it.  I had said that I'd find an older one for her to use, but she didn't think she needed one.  As I looked more, and showed some of them to her, she kind of got more interested.

From Green to Retina : the complete story of Apple displays

Very interesting blog post telling the whole story of Apple displays.

 

On a personal note, I still prefer the image on a CRT, rather than LCD.
