Thread: My first macbook

  1. #1

    Default My first macbook

    So I finally got a mac. It's used. From 2012, I think. I'm so confused. Does anyone here use a mac so I can pick your brain?

    If you have just a little bit of extra money to put into it you can upgrade the RAM and even put an SSD hard drive in it and basically make it like a new one. I think I spent $300 or so and my late 2012 MacBook pro now has 16GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD hard drive and it is the fastest computer I have ever used. It's ridiculous.

    You should have bought two of them and throw them both in the garbage.

    I will probably be there eventually. But right now I have more noob questions. Like how do I update to the newest version? Mine said it’s up to date but it’s a 10.7 I think. An app said it requires 10.10 or greater. Older Macs can still update to the current OS, right?

    I think I will like it, but I have just been with Windows so long that it's taking some getting used to. It took a long time to find one at a decent price, so I couldn't pass this one up. This one was $250.

    They had the Macbook Pro and an iPad Air 2 for $350. By the time I reached them someone had bought the iPad separately. I was going to buy them both and sell the iPad. Apparently the chick got a new Macbook and didn't need this one. I figured I'd get it before she realized they're selling for a lot more.

    Let the record state that Shazam fought a good fight, but officially receives a "that boy dead."

    Upon further review, this is the first marked occasion one of the style brothers has victimized someone with a patented "Style-Driver."

    God has left us - there is no mercy here.

    I think I've figured something out. I am having to download El Capitan before anything else.

    I have an older Mac from 2012 as well that I still use to this day with no issues so screw everyone in here! (just kidding, it just works better for the type of work I do, I actually have bootcamp installed with Windows 10 on it so I can play games)

    Anyway, I think the highest OS you can install is High Sierra. Look for that as a free download in the App Store, this link should take you there for the download.

    Let me know if you have any questions about your older yet superior purchase.
