Girlfriend, Meet Mac
My girlfriend, who I've gradually been converting into a Mac user for the past few years, has asked to borrow one for a while. She's currently running a rather-nice Dell and dual-booting between Windows 98 and Mandrake Linux. Now that she's finished with school, she mostly needs a computer for Internet access and digital photography. (Mostly pictures of friends and family and pets and such.) Now that she's seen iPhoto on Mac OS X, the deal's as good as sealed. I'm loaning her my Rev. A iMac (which I got the moment they came out, as a gift from a good friend.) I just wiped Yellow Dog Linux from that system last week and did a clean install of Mac OS X, the first time I've had a Mac sans OS 9. I think it will be perfect for her.
