    I managed to successfully install Tiger on a G3 iBook with 384Mb RAM and no DVD drive, and no CD version of Tiger when my PowerBook was away being repaired a few weeks ago. It runs better than OS9 did as well, just get quite a few beachballs if I had more than a couple of tabs open in Safari.

    Basically, I used the "Recover" part of Disk Utility to copy the tiger installer DVD (which we'd bought from Apple ages ago) onto my firewire hard drive (using my dad's MacBook Pro). I then booted up from the FWHD on the iBook and did a clean install of Tiger.


    Works brilliantly

    I like the new iPods. Seems odd to have the iPod Touch only available in 8GB and 16GB versions. It's ideally suited to video, so large storage space would be great. The iPod Classic has a massive size now and I can see few people actually having 40,000 songs or wanting to watch gigabytes of video on the small screen. I wonder how the new Nano's screen is, I can't imagine it being great for video either. But they all look rather snazzy, and I bet I'll end up getting a Touch at some point.

    They can't put more memory in the touch as it would cast way too much. Flash isn't cheap, and they need to use it to avoid all the drain on the battery the comes with hard drives.

    I'll be picking up a 160GB Classic at some point. I dropped my old one (4G B&W 20GB) the other week and it's been playing up a bit since. Just gotta wait for my loads to come in so I can work out how much I can spend and when I can spend it as I'm also planning on getting a new iMac too.

    Just got my brand new MacBook Pro yesterday, along with a 160GB iPod Classic (black).

    2.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD (5400rpm), 15.4" matt widescreen, Superdrive, 128mb GeForce 8600m GT.

    I installed the 250GB drive myself and have ordered an SATA external enclosure to put the old 120GB drive in for portable storage. I also have two 500GB firewire 800 external drives for storage and backup.

    I have a large photo collection (currently 30GB) and plan on scanning in thousands of family photos from film cameras.

    Also, I will be importing 12+ years of 8mm video from family holidays, occasions etc and editing to produce DVDs.

    I'll buy it once the 10.5.1 update is out and hopefully fixed some of the bugs, as I'm in no real hurry for it.

    At the bottom right of the window there's a few little lines forming a triangle, click on that and drag the window out. I had the same problem, because the cursor doesn't change shape when you go over the triangle, and the maximise button doesn't actually maximise.

    The maximise button resizes the window to suit whatever is being shown. Quite a handy feature I thought

    Maximising windows is a Windows approach to computing and wastes space on your desktop. To take full advantage of your computer do not maximise windows, use several applications (all viewable at the same time) at once.

    I have to say I love my Mac Pro. It is by far the best computer I have ever owned.

    When the Zoom/Green button works, I find it to be far better than Maximise. For instance, its perfect on Safari. But its broken on a lot of apps. It turns iTunes into the mini player as an example. I find that to be quite poor and inconsistent behaviour.
