Just so people shut up, I paid 19 dollars
A long while back I said I was going to get that macbook. Well, I got one, just not a good one. Not even one that can run 10.7. No somehow I managed to end up getting a CORE DUO macbook. Late late 2006 so no buggy shitty EFI chip at least. Though I will be trading up if I can at some point.
However for the moment my goal is to get 10.6.8 and windws on it and get it set up for what I have wanted it for: Educational Bullshit. When I start back at school I want a way to unify all my work I am going to be doing on one ecosystem. My imac will be able to be tho main host and my macbook will be the outing (especially with my ibook being effectively dead).
One thing that pisses me off is the fact that I only have 1 1GB stick of ram. I thought I had 2 spare but the only other one I have is in my imac and I'd rather not yank it out....
Though... Well maybe I will... Can't hurt after all.
I'll be looking into hacking 10.7 onto the machine as there should be a modded kernel out there for one of these machines. At the moment it seems rather zippy for what it is and to be honest it's going to be doing work, not play. If I end up getting something mac related in the future to do more with then I'll post about it but at most I'll be doing minecraft (which I know is playable thanks to the 8 bit guy).
Windows will be for experimenting with the shitty GPU. Games, sure, but video and youtube as well. I don't know what will be available in 10.6 for browsers yet so we'll have to wait and see about that I think.
I will also be rejuvenating my "Why in the World" thread on Core Duo's now that I have one. I didn't do anything with it because I didn't have the hardware yet.
OVer all the machine is clean other than a few scuffs. KB is barely even used, mostly just the trackpad. It looks like it was at the bottom of a stack of them in a school and it was used periodically, not daily. The other units there (Comprenew, the parts depot) had blasted screens, bad mobos, and fucked up KB's, aside from case damage. This unit only has some scuffs from rubber feet and the normal cracking of these cases from heat and time.
Excited over all though. New machine, new projects to come.
To the lab!!!
Edit: Don't be a critical little shitbug and bitch about me doing something. If you have anything useful that I might like to know, then say that. Don't just spout bullshit. Be respectable at the very least.
