    Finally converted my Dad to Mac. All he does it email, stock browsing, YouTube, and some free porn browsing. He's had an OOLD P3 450 that I built years ago.

    With the free porn browsing, he doesn't know how to do it properly so eventually spyware/malware gets installed and I have to do a fresh Windows install. I got him a Mac Mini so I don't have to do that shit anymore! :bigthumb:

    Found a Core Duo 1.66ghz w/ 512 RAM, 60gig HD, Airport, etc for $400. Most of the 1.42 G4s I found were selling for $350, so I think I got a decent deal.

    Anything I should do to it? Could always use more memory, but I'm wondering if there's anything else. I might be using it from time to time.

    It's the truth. :rofl:

    He doesn't know how to tell if a site is "safe" or not. So he's totally screwed up his computer by browsing free porn sites that install a ton of shit. I'm sick of having to spend 4 hours fixing it every few months, so I've converted him to Mac. No more spyware or malware.
