Is Macintosh For You? Introduction: On January 24, 1984, Apple Computer Inc. (now Apple Inc.) introduced the Macintosh  personal  computer, with the  Macintosh 128K  model, which came bundled with the  Mac OS  operating system, then known as the  System Software.   The Macintosh is often credited with  popularizing the graphical user interface. The Mac OS has been pre-installed on almost every  Macintosh computer ever sold. The first version of the Mac OS is easily distinguished between  other operating systems from the same period because it does not use a command line interface;  it was one of the first operating systems to use an entirely graphical user interface. Major Features: Some of the new Mac OS X major features are featured on Snow Leopard and these are:  Exchange, Expose’, Smart Eject, Malware Check, and many more. Exchange allows you to  Exchange account in Mail, you’ll start receiving e-mail messages in Mail, you’ll be able to view  Exchange contacts in Address Book, and Exchange calendars and tasks will appear in iCal.  (iCalendar) Mac now has a new built in Malware Check which is a stock list of harmful viruses  and any harmful files that may harm your computer.  They now also have Expose’ which allows  you to look at all your window that you currently have open in a grid like alignment. And also

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
