Time to buy a comfy Mac. Time to say goodbye to problems. Time for a premium computing experience.

I bought one. Ended up installing Debian on it for the premium computing experience you're talking about.

What has to go wrong in someone's life that they end up like pic related and make threads like these 20x a day:

That comfortable feeling comes from everything just working.

>only macbook with user replaceable parts
If I install debian on this thing do you think I can squeeze a few more years out of it? I don't want to have to buy an all in one toy.

>> No.62938053

No it isn't.
Also nobody believes you're buying one, or that they should buy one. You've already got one, and you want to be more normal by changing us.

Why would that thing be obsolete? Hell, I don't even consider my iBook obsolete.

Macshit is obsolete before it ever leaves the factory.

>> No.62938061

Way more than few more years. I'm running Debian on an old Vista laptop with 2gb of RAM and it's smooth as fuck.

>> No.62938068

I mean apple giving it software updates.
That's good to know.

I actually have one of the 15 inch toy models but it died like 6 months out of warranty and I have no idea how to fix it because everything is on like three boards.

>> No.62938085

What computer are you using, Jizzdeep?

>> No.62938100

I mean apple giving it software updates.
Expect a couple extra OS revisions to work unofficially. It's all good until Apple removes the old graphics kexts.

Much easier just to run macOS in a VM these days.

I see you have a G4

I have an old Pismo G3, and I see you managed to get linux on yours, which distro did you use? I would like to get more life out of it if I could.

>> No.62938175

Somebody has a 2007 MBP on craigslist in my area hoping to trade it for something more current (another MBP) and expecting it to be a straight trade, I laughed pretty hard at that one.

Wouldn't mind having that old school original MBP (the 17" model) for the 1680x1050 IPS panel in it but, it's worth like $50 nowadays AFAIC so when I offered the $50 the guy got all pissed and didn't seem to understand he's trying to trade a truly obsolete piece of technology for something that's not obsolete and not offering any cash on his side of the deal.

Good for a laugh, certainly. I told him I have a Dell Latitude E6400 that can run macOS High Sierra just fine aka a Hackintosh and he had no fucking clue what I meant.

Oh well, some folks will just never learn nothing new.

I'm using Debian unstable, but since ppc isn't a supported arch anymore I had to install an old version, change the sources.list to include the Debian ports repos and dist-upgrade to it. Works a charm now.
A Pismo G3 might be a bit of a stretch for anything other than very basic computing, though. I don't even know if Debian will work at all on it, I tried installing it on a beige PowerMac G3 from the same era and had no luck.
