Expanding into mac's and OSX

I have stayed away from all things Apple, but with the blurring of lines on the home network everything has to talk to every thing.

So I have now resurrected and old Mac Book from around 2008 with an Arabic keyboard.

The hard disk had gone and so had the battery. I just had a spare 50GB SSD (Solid State Disk) waiting for a use.

It was an easy task to pop the disk in a few screws in the battery compartment and the old disk was out and the new in.

Took me a while to work out how to boot from DVD (press C during startup) and OSX was installed with a few options.

It boots very quickly OSX 10.4 with 1gb Mem, (I may upgrade memory). I have just ordered OSX 10.6 Snow leopard from the apples store £18 inc postage, cheaper than Ebay.

Hopefully once I have Snow Leopard installed I should be able to install a later version of ITune and Sophos free antivirus for Mac.
