I'm a semi-technical ditz. You should know that right away.
I can, at the same time, do a lot. And not much. I use my computer
mostly for emails, and writing projects that involve viewing
.pdf files. I'm starting to learn PhotoShop, slowly. Want to
learn how to retouch and manipulate photos. Mosty mine.
I read somewhere, Apple is putting a new chip into the computers
next year. I think, not sure, but think it's an Intel chip. Which means
more changes, surely. And new software for the new computer, and
and and... maybe a whole new industry for Apple, like when they
introduced OSX and Panther?
My question is - I want to buy a new Mac laptop and I feel I have
to wait because who wants to spend Mac's prices on a new laptop
to find it outdated by the end of next year?
I am very happy with my G4 desktop, upgraded to Panther,
more memory, etc. from an antique - purchased end of 2000!
Also, I have old programs I run - like a very old address book,
older versions of Apple and MS and even MacWrite Pro, on which
I have too much data to convert so do use sometimes. I don't
know if I'll be able to run those old programs with the new chip.
Shall I wait? I know laptops will probably come down in price as
we near next year, but I don't want another antique in no time flat.
