All right. I did it. I decided to move from Windows to Mac. I'm not a computer genius and I couldn't tell you how they work, so you've been forwarned. I'm extremely naive so bear with me, please.
I've been brought up on Windows, but after recieving an iPod last Christmas decided it was time to give something else a try. I don't really need much when it comes to a computer: something to surf with and something to write with (as that is my main passtime) and I'm all set. So I figured I'd get a laptop. And what's more, I didn't need a particularily new or fast model. In fact, I could settle with something simple and cheap.
... So I bought an iBook G3 (clamshell) off eBay. Maybe an impulse buy but one look at those sloping curves in my favorite color (orange) and I was hooked. I have yet to recieve said iBook, but am anxious to learn anything and everything I can about them.
Again, I'll say it: I have no idea what I'm doing so I may very well have picked the crappiest laptop out there. If I have, break it to me gently, please?
So what I'm here to ask is this: does anyone know any good sites or manuals on G3 clamshells? What can I do to upgrade this baby? How can I install an internal or where can I find an external DVD player? How fast should I strive for this thing to go? Like I said: I haven't recieved it yet so I'd like to know what to expect. Can I install any of the newer mac programs (Tiger) if I upgrade the RAM? Anyone care to help me out a tad? It would be greatly appreciated.
