    Need Buying Advise

    Actually, I heart with some certainty that the 12" models are being updated. I was in the apple store talking to an employee, when I was checking out both models (12" ibook and 12" powerbook), the saleman said "...and the powerbook has the backlit keys too..." To which I said, "no it...

    Need Buying Advise

    Thank you all for your quick responces. I think I'm going to wait for WWDC and see what happens there. Unfortunately, money is a huge factor here. in fact, whatever I get I'd be financing through Apple, so I'm leaning toward the 800mhz iBook. Also, the 4.5 hours battery life wirththe...

    Need Buying Advise

    Here's my problem... I have an iBook 500 (rev a) that I have to give back to someone soon, so I need to get my own laptop. Right now, I'm VERY satisfied with Jaguar on this system, which is 500mhz, has 320 mb ram, and an 8 mb video card. In fact, I'm shocked at how well everything runs...

    Quake 3 Arena for Mac OS X

    Hello, I have the original Quake 3 arena CD. I moved to OS X a few months ago and I figured now would be a good as time as any to install the OS X version and give it a try. I copied the baseq3 folder off the cd onto my hard drive, and downloaded the latest OS X version (1.31beta). What...

    Please! Does OptOnline work with OS X?!

    This is the only thing stopping me from taking the plunge! If there is anyone out there who is using Optimum online with OS X (not through a router, but direct into the ethernet port) PLEASE let me know. Tech support has gotten me nowhere. Thanks for your Help! -Mark

    Does MAC OS X have DHCP support?

    That's just it, if you plug the ethernet line directly into the computer, you'll find it doesn't work in the beta. My freind had the same config.

    Does MAC OS X have DHCP support?

    True, the tech is in there, but very few people have been able to get optonline cable to work because of a DHCP problem with OS X. I don't know the details, but I'm afraid that it won't work, and I don't want to have to hack the system to make it work, like some have had to do.

    Does MAC OS X have DHCP support?

    It's the one thing stopping me from pre-ordering it. I have a cable modem which uses DHCP. I'm on Long Island and use optimum online. Does anyone have this working, or know if the final version will have full DHCP support? Please help! Thanks :)

    Interface philosophy: less is *not* more, anymore. Aqua lacks Windows features!.

    I know a bunch of people that have never used a computer. They're mostly in they're 30's, and didn't use one in school at that point, nor do they use one at their jobs. And they happen to be very intellegent people. Also, I know a few people that wouldn't know what to do if they turned on a...

    is OS X Cable Modem / DHCP compatable?

    oh, theres nothing wrong woth the service, it's fast as all hell, and I've never been dropped. It's just that their tech support has no experience with macs, so asking them if it could be configured on os x would be a waste of time.
