Narrative »

  • Received a phone call where I work asking if we recycle old computers. My ears always prick up when I hear those words so I asked what it was. They said it was an old Mac. I told them someone around the office could probably make use of it!
  • This Mac is by far in the best physical condition of any of my Macs. For a machine of it’s age, it’s in amazing shape.
