There is trouble in paradise. My 2011 iMac has a faulty graphics card and has all the classic symptoms. After taking it for a checkup with an Apple tech, they confirmed my own diagnoses. After doing some research I found there was an recall on my iMac, but I was unware of it at the time in 2013 when they issued it. Now I am stuck with a computer that is going to cost more than it’s worth to fix. So I guess it’s time to recycle it and start saving for a new one.
So Recently I got a new mac, which I usually get a new computer about ever 7-10 years. Since getting a new mac in 2004 I thought it was getting time to get a new computer. The g5 was getting sluggish. I am enjoying the new computer a lot, and Lion is pretty neat too. Mac OS 10.7 ( Lion) has a lot of features I’m using everyday like Launch pad & mission control. Really helps when you have many windows open. I missed having Dashboard widgets on the desktop, but putting dashboard in dev mode still works in Lion and I’m back to having weather on my desktop, so I’m pretty happy about it too.
