If you want a powerbook or ibook, and you only want to use it for mail, photo's etc. you can do that with a powerbook or ibook with G3 processor. The amount of memory is much more of importance. I have a G3 266mhzpowerbook with 256mb memory and it works excellent. Someone 10minutes drive from my ho...

Just wondering, why a Mac? You can get a PC for much less and you'll have much more compatibility with other machines than a Mac ever will... Nothing against Mac's, they're good machines, but software is damn near impossible to find, and God help you if you ever had one go bad... S/W isnt a problem...

Anyone know anything about macs?

Of the ibook or powerbook variety. I'm looking for something to take on holiday I can d/l my digital photos to and maybe do a bit of processing on if the weather is bad.

Obviously, not quite forgotten everything 68k related yet.

I'd have thought someone of your talents would have come up with a cunning plan to do most of the copy with movem and do the odd bytes separately?

Why bytecopy?

I'm sure Lawrence has some reason why he's doing a byte copy of the file but isnt it a bit slow or am I missing something incredibly obvious here?
