    I guess that will have to keep....as my iPad has me still hopping. Oh, that is when I can get my hands on it! DW was given a Sony netbook last year that gets little use, and DD has a MacBook Pro that get little use. My poor ol iPad bears the brunt. Now my DW mentioned last night that she might like her own???? :tongue:

    Interestingly, the rumblings I'm currently seeing are indicating the possibility of new Macbooks as opposed to Macbook Pro's. :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave: guess we'll find out shortly...)

    Ha! Where have I heard that before. :unsure:

    Specifically, "I want one" in a small, somewhat whiny voice.

    Tom :)macwave:... bought her one too!)

    macbook air: New third-generation Core processors (aka Ivy Bridge). Depending on config, up to 2.0GHz of dual-core i7 speed. With Turbo Boost up to 3.2 GHz. Up to 8GB of 1600MHz memory. up to 512GB SSD

    No big deal to me really, the existing ones are fast enough for me although 8GB and 512 are nice!

    I read what you said but sort of feel like a dog listening to its owner....bla bla bla ...Fido....bla bla bla bla...WALK!!!:yes:

    Keith I am such a dolt when dealing with all the tech stuff. You would never guess that I live in the tech world to some degree (planetarium is totally wired) but pay more attention to the application than to the hardwear.

    Now I take it that the clock time is good?
