Re: New iMacs

I think that may have been a boo boo made by a store employee not yet trained in selling the new iMac. Apple didn't get as prosperous as it is by giving away merchandise. From what I've read you have the option of the mouse or the trackpad. We'll have to wait for more people to buy the new iMacs and...

Re: New iMacs

Did you choose the Magic Mouse or the trackpad?

In the past you had to pay an additional $69 for the trackpad but with the new iMac there's no additional charge.

Something tells me that Apple is trying to wean us away from using a mouse.

Re: Mac Book Pro suddenly won't communicate with printer

This forum is great. Even when our members don't have the answer someone will do an extensive search and find it for you.

Now that you've discovered what a treasure this place is you can be an evangelist and convince others to participate not only here (online) but at our SMUG meetings.

Re: Flat-Screen TV as Monitor

The BluRay player will take a standard DVD and perform some electronic voodoo to it so as to improve the video. Won't be as good as a BluRay disk but it will look better than playing a standard DVD in a regular player.

Watching a BluRay disk through a BluRay player on a HDTV will blow you away.

Tell me you bought a real BluRay DVD player and not some oh-so-yesterday plain vanilla DVD player.

Re: Flat-Screen TV as Monitor

Richard, your last post is right on. I'll just buy the TV and experiment with its own speakers and the computer speakers we have on hand. You have my personal guarantee that you won't use the HDTV's internal speakers. These new flat TVs just don't have any room for speakers so what you get is just ...

Re: simple text

Somebody is going to call me on this but I thought Simple Text was a OS9 application. If so it won't run on OS 10.6.x.
