    Right now, at work, I'm using an early 2011 MacBook Pro. It's had no problems at all. I'll likely get a new one early next year, but I'm in no hurry because I don't want to give up the 17-inch display....

    Overall I haven't really ever had any problems with macs either. Basically just the grpahics card problems I've been talking about. And the 2011 MBP is notorious for them (which is what I have now)....

    This is a puzzling discussion because the things described run counter to my experiences.

    I've been buying Macs since 1984, and have probably owned, maybe, a couple dozen of them. Also during...

  • Room-less room...What to do...Help!

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/siennachattel/

    This is our room upstairs. It's an 'office' right now, but we never use it. It has such a beautiful view it's really a shame that we never go up there or use that room.

    We were thinking of making it a guest bed room, but we already have a guest bedroom (that hardly gets used). So, that's probably not the best idea. A media room may not be the best idea either, because we already have all of our electronic stuff in the living room down stairs. So...uhh...We cannot figure out what to do.

    It's kind of a small room, octagon shaped. 11ft x 11ft. Amazing views of the Hollywood Hills.

    What do you think? Any creative ideas? I know you guys are brilliant.

        I'd be living up there. Gets some plants and furniture out on that deck (might want the bolt down kind and be sure the weight of the garden isn't too much for it). Just make it a nice comfortable place to sit and 'be'. You know, unplug. Are the windows screened? Can you open em to the air and is the air fit to breath?

            That might work. Like....a quiet room. And some comfy stuff out on the deck?

            Most of the windows dont have screens.They are hinge/swing open windows.

                      Black out the windows, board up the door from the outside, and every now and then, go in there and scream bloody murder for a minute or 2....just to make the neighbors wonder

                              I think an art room/study/library/observatory has been established. When do we pick out the paint colors?
