    Macbook Pro Power Adaptors..

    I can GUARANTEE you that it's not a 35W adapter. I have a first gen MBP adapter and a new one from two months ago. Neither are 35 W. What you probably do have is an 85W adapter... where the left side of the "8" was rubbed away, leaving you with a 3.

    Connecting to Windows shares via Leopard

    Here's what I did... it works now but I can't determine which step exactly worked: 1) installed Bonjour for Windows 2) turned off simple file sharing 3) in Leopard, turned on SMB file sharing (yeah I know we want Windows -> Leopard sharing not the other way but it worked) 4) connected to...

    Connecting to Windows shares via Leopard

    What helped for me was installing Bonjour for Windows...

    performance of mac/pc games in macOS vs. bootcamp?

    Hurshai, I've got an x1600 and I've been trying to get better performance out of TF2... what'd you do to get the latest Omega drivers working?

    autmatic resizing to display size dependng on what monitor is connected

    This program doesn't resize (but this a Mac, you don't maximize most windows anyway :) but Forget-Me-Not is awesome. Not Leopard compatible yet though. FMN remembers where all your windows were depending on your monitor setup, so if Firefox was on the external in the upper left corner but...

    Apps sure take a while to fire up in a MBP

    Nice. I do wonder what the cause was. In the past I realized that some Dashboard widgets I was running were in Rosetta (baaaaaaaddddd), that helped a bit. I was going to post that I have a 2 GHz Core Duo and even when I only had 1 GB of RAM things usually opened within 3 bounces.

    Dual display on a MBP?

    Most certainly. No problems with my HP 2207w (1680x1050) and that's on a first gen Core Duo 2 GHz MBP

    Thoughts about my MacBook Pro rant?

    I have a Core Duo (yes old) 2.0 GHz 15" MBP. No problems whatsoever with USB drives. I use flash drives, an external via USB, USB mouse, keyboard, and printer. No problems using Expose showing All Windows when I'm connected to my 22" (1680x1050) external monitor as my secondary display...

    macbook pro, gaming computer

    Actually, no I'm not. Forgot to mention that I'm playing on 22" external 1680x1050. I'm not a "hardcore" gamer--in that I could care less what my framerate (the number) is, I only care about what it looks like in the end. And IMHO, it looks just fine to me.

    macbook pro, gaming computer

    I literally just posted about this on another forum. I play Orange Box just fine on XP on my Core Duo MBP.

    Static Electricity + Macbook Pro

    You get a lot fewer shocks if you use the 3-prong (grounded) adapter to plug into the wall. IMHO it's just sloppy design, but there's nothing you can do about it. I've called Apple support and this is what they've told me (use 3-prong, unless injured nothing they'll do)

    Do all video cards work in macs?

    Just to clarify, it's pretty certain that EFI is not going to remain Mac-only--Macs are just ahead of the curve right now... PCs have been slow to switch over, but the old bios is dying.

    Thought about getting a Mac - Have not used one in 12 years

    :) Ok, it's not really going to imitate the real thing well, but a pretty damn creative site.

    Data loss craziness???

    Um what?!? Seagate makes pretty damn good drives--they're often quite quiet and their warranty is the best among common manufacturers (5 years). They're definitely not perfect, but I dare you to find a consumer hard drive manufacturer that hasn't had past models with similar hardware...
