Trying to switch parents, advice
Okay, been bugging the parents about their slow Dell and how frustrating it is to have to have two million programs on security detail just to browse internet, how the computer is slow with internet in general. Finally they are getting tired of it, yea! So they are ready to switch, but on a budget. Don't need to do powerful computing (think lots of web browsing, document creation)- the new mini should be fine with super drive (I think once they see how easy they could make DVD's and their own music it would hook them more). I know about maxing ram. One of the big obstacles right now is switching financial software. They currently use microsoft money and are concerned about transferring info. over to the mac side. Ideas on what financial programs work? I still run quicken98 under classic on my powerbook, so am a little out of date on this. Think simple and easy. They have the screen, keyboard and mouse already, so good to go there. Hopefully Tiger will get here sooner than later as well. Any input appreciated.
