new mac

Postby spongebob on Fri Jan 18, 2008 7:45 pm

I finally bought a mac. over the last 10 years I have had an Acer. compac, gateway and lastly a dell. All have suffered from hardware failure or a virus. So i decided to spend the extra money and get a mac. I just set up my new 24inch IMac. What a sweet machine, Im running lepard and windows via bootcamp. it only takes about 30 seconds to switch betreen operating systems. afterrunning a pc for the last 15 years its taking alot of adjusting but should be worth it.

Apple is such a sweet company. Anything that they put out is golden IMHO.

So how does the whole software thing work between Mac & PC's? I am really liking the all of the Mac mainly the 24" all in one. But I am afraid of software compatibility issues, are there any? Or what is the deal between the two? TIA Tim

No issues with the new macs. They use Intel CPU's so they are able to process both Windows and OS X applications. Leopard, the new OS has Boot Camp built in, this allows for windows based applications to run in a mac environment, seamlessly.

Here is more info...

OS X provides the capability to share Printers connected to a Mac.

Under System Preferences >Sharing>Services , enable this option. You will then be able to send job to the printer, provided it is connected to another mac hosting it.

With that said, I don't think this option will work if you only have one machine and want to connect the printer directly to your router/switch, unless it is a network capable printer. If it's not you can get a USB to RJ45 (Ethernet) adapter and make you printer network ready.

Here is an example of such devices...

Hope this helps.
