Since it’s probably kind of obvious that I have been spending much time diagnosing and ensuring some stability in my Windows PC, I may as well mention that I have also been looking to get my hands on a cheap Mac system to play with. In fact, I was close to spending some money on a second-hand Mac Mini until the buyer backed out at the last minute. 😡
Anyway, here are some links (likely to add to as I find more) I have found useful while doing the research.
- MacInTouch: timely news and tips about the Apple Macintosh (the original Mac news and information site according to the site slogan and with lots of performance comparisons)
- Mike’s Mac OS X Management Software and Tips (at least there’s the Carbon Copy Cloner which allows you to have a complete, bootable backup of the hard drive)
- (full of advance announcements, so much so that Apple is seeking legal action for some news items! Update: unfortunately forced to shut down by Apple…)
- Low End Mac: How Much Mac Do You Need?
- Mac users group, Singapore (there’s a nice buy/sell section in the Forum but requires registration just to browse)
