I'm about to have to turn my Intel MacPro over to my son for a week of rehab. Need more ram, more disk space and just a general refresh. I can't complain, because she's been a work horse for nearly 6 years, with very little difficulty. But not having her here is going to be very, very traumatic. Hubby's PC will work for getting on the internet, but I won't have Photoshop or any of the software that I normally use. Withdrawal will be severe. No. 1 son promises I'll be very happy with more ram and much more disk space. I don't doubt that! However, there may be some thumb sucking, or I may have to resort to a binkie.
If worse comes to worst, I could drag out the ancient G3 and see if she still works. That probably trumps a binkie.
