My 2007 17" 2.33 GHz core 2 duo Macbook Pro
Great post. My 2006 24" iMac still has a beautiful matte screen that is brilliant and beautiful. I plan on installing a 3 TB drive on it and also an SSD where the optical drive is just for the OS and applications. Hopefully this will speed me up and keep it going. For most of what I do it is fine and with bigger photography projects I just have to be patient. It is currently running Lion but I get the beachball a lot so will probably go back to snow leopard.
Does anyone know if the old 24" white iMac does better with Snow Leopard vs Lion?
If I could use it as a monitor I would buy a Mac mini and hook into it but apparently that isn't possible. A new computer would be nice but that beautiful screen is too hard to give up on.
