Another new(ish) Apple Mac computer… again!


I did an exchange with my great niece in all honesty… She had always wanted an iMac and I had always wanted a MacBook Pro – we both had them, so we swapped.

It is very fast, smooth and was made in 2010… It has an Intel i5 dual-core processor with 4GB of DDR3 Ram memory. The screen, which is 13 inches has a resolution of 1400×900 but when plugged into an external monitor can easily obtain the 1920×1080 screen resolutions. It has a built-in nVidia graphics card which has 250MB and Intel’s graphics which let it run an additional 388MB graphics using the Ram Memory share.

The keyboard lights up which makes it a pleasure to type when it is actually dimmer in the room, ideal for these oncoming winter evenings, and the TrackPad is a doddle to use, providing you know the gestures of the Apple TrackPad and memorise them!

It is running the latest version of Apple’s main computer operating system, OS X (currently OS X Yosemite 10.10.1) and it also has Apple’s BootCamp installed which allows me to run Windows from Microsoft – and I have installed my legitimate version of Windows 8.1 Pro.

I wouldn’t be without it now!

My name is Daryl and I was born in October 1965. I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease in June 2011, and I was put on medication, which I believe is helping keep the worst of the condition at bay. In November 2012 I was also diagnosed with the first stages of Parkinson's Disease and I am now two lots of medication for this illness as well. I live in a secure bungalow in an elderly complex in my hometown of Sutton-in-Ashfield and I have support from the social services and a support worker who visits six hours per week to help me live my life as independently as possible. Visit me on my Facebook page... I love life now, and the people in it - so show your support for me and the organisations that support dementia and Parkinson's disease - let's make this small world of ours a much more pleasant place to live in by caring for those that need that little bit more help in life!
