tails coin




condition:   LIKE NEW
screen:   15" Anti-Glare
operating system:   MAC OS SNOW LEOPARD
processor:   2.5ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
memory:    4gb 667mhz DDR2 SDRAM
hard drive:   250gb
extras:    Incase Chocolate Brown MacBook Pro Bag (retail cost $60)

It comes with all original materials and disks plus the original box (pictured). The cosmetic condition is perfect except for one tiny mark on the edge where I rested my hand one too many times (pictured below). I've never had any issues with the macbook and am only selling it because I recently upgraded to a new 27" iMac. :)


Price:    $800

International Shipping: I'll subtract the cost of USA shipping but anything over that will have to be added to the cost.

Notes: Price was determined based on apple's recycle price and going rates on ebay, I'm willing to consider best offers however. If you'd prefer to do a private auction through ebay, I'm fine with it (I've done it before) but ebay costs will be added to the price. If you pay through paypal and don't want to use "personal gift" to avoid paypal fees then the fees will be added to your cost.

Valve Brings Hit Games, Steam Service to Mac

Steam is the pre-eminent digital distribution platform for PCs. With more than 1,000 games and 25 million user accounts, Steam is by one estimate responsible for more than 70 percent of digital game purchases. Bringing the service to Macs means wider selection, quicker updates and more episodic content for Apple’s traditionally game-deprived computers.


Valve wants to position its games not as static products but as part of an ongoing, constantly updated, ubiquitous service, company co-founder Gabe Newell told Wired.com in advance of Monday’s announcement.

“The traditional model has always been that you have these really extended development times … where you do nothing for customers for several years and then you try to drive everybody into the theaters or into the stores on a given date,” Newell said. “It makes it hard to steer your decisions based on customer feedback, and customers don’t particularly like that. They would like to have the experience of being part of an entertainment community where they’re getting something on a daily or more frequent basis.

Bringing Steam to Mac will give gamers several cross-platform benefits, Newell said.

  • If players already own the PC versions of Valve games, they’ll get Mac versions at no extra charge through a feature called Steam Play.
  • By using the Steam Cloud feature that the company introduced in 2008, players can save in-progress games online, then call up those saved games no matter which version they’re playing. If you’re playing Half-Life 2 on your home PC but then head out on the road with your MacBook, you can continue your game-in-progress.

“We looked at a variety of methods to get our games onto the Mac and in the end decided to go with native versions rather than emulation,” said John Cook, director of Steam development, in Monday’s press release.

“We are treating the Mac as a tier-1 platform so all of our future games will release simultaneously on Windows, Mac and the Xbox 360,” Cook said. “Updates for the Mac will be available simultaneously with the Windows updates. Furthermore, Mac and Windows players will be part of the same multiplayer universe, sharing servers, lobbies and so forth. We fully support a heterogeneous mix of servers and clients. The first Mac Steam client will be the new generation currently in beta testing on Windows.

My MacBook keeps shutting off when it gets hot..

The fan works but makes a lot of noise and has, progressively, been getting worse. I keep it off the bed and let it rest but I am wondering:

what are your first-hand experiences with fan problems?

Anyone here use ninjavideo to watch TV shows and movies? It used to constantly work for me ... until I upgraded to Snow Leopard. I don't get it, so I checked the FAQ on the site and they actually mention that it doesn't work in 64-bit safari. Thus, I ran safari in 32-bit ... and I still get nothing. This makes me a really sad panda. Any help would be appreciated.

itunes 9

So I just downloaded the latest version of iTunes and set up the Home Share feature so I could easily download my friends music. I am having trouble doing so though. I am able to view and listen to other music libraries but not add any music from their library to my own. Why does the button that is supposed to be on the bottom of the page not there that lets you filter out music you already own from the library and let you take the songs. Are my preferences not set correctly? If so how do I change them?
