iMac G4 800MhzI just bought the kids a new computer – or should I say an old computer that is NEW to them!

Got a Apple iMac G4 800Mhz machine off of eBay for a good price – I’ve always wanted one of these and now that all three kids use the computer I had a reason to buy one…

I love this thing! You’d think that an 800Mhz machine would be sluggish, but it’s not! I’m running OS X 10.4.10 and it’s just fine. Safari, Firefox, iChat, etc. are all perfect. I’ll let you know once I install a copy of Microsoft Office on it whether or not I feel the same way, but or now I’m basking in the glow of my new iMac :).

So, for the information on how to change OS X’s computer name. I found this on the web, on Photo Matt’s website: Go to System Preferences � Sharing � Computer Name… you can also edit the name of you computer so that it will be easy to find on the local network. For example: if you change the name to Jamie’s iMac the computer name on the network might not be as friendly… so just double check it… I used iMacJamie.local, it was just easier that way.
