Does anyone like computers here? I’ve been a semi-computer nut ever since I first touched one in 5th grade in the early 90s. I never owned one until my 3rd year in college, 2002, because I couldn’t afford one. In fact I am still using that one today.
I’ve always used Windows and I have not liked Macs for a long time, until recently. Over the past couple months I have been researching more and more into them and the latest release of OS X, Leopard[/url:193wmjcl], has convinced me to switch.
It has a lot more intuitive features than Windows Vista (which I have on my laptop) and I think the risk of switching is a lot less now than ever before because there is greater compatibility between a Mac and Windows computers.
Do you all use Windows? Do you even care…lol? ” title=”Smile” />June 9, 2008 at 12:41 am #8842

What did it do? Was there a way to see what you were typing?June 9, 2008 at 4:26 am #8844
There was a basic word processing program, an optional dot matrix printer. Each time you booted up the system, you had to load the program from a cassette tape player, (not included). The cables included allowed you to use a television as a monitor. The basic memory was 14K or 18K which was held in a pod that was plugged into the back of the unit, you could add on two or three extra pods, each one was a little larger than a transformer on a carger for a cell phone. You could also buy games like Frogger and other programs on cassette tapes.
You can still fund them from time to time on ebay.
