Christmas Presents?

Post  Nighthawk0973 on Fri Dec 30, 2011 5:19 pm

For those of you who do celebrate the holiday you should post your presents (that people here would care about, like games, computers, or other hardware/software) here. As for me....

I got a Mac Mini with the Mac OS X Leopard. I have yet to buy a monitor and mouse of my own. (Don't ask me how I'm going to get the monitor) Chances are my model as 2.3Ghz Processor with 500GB HD space and 512 MB of RAM. You can google Mac Mini starting specs online.

I got Warcraft III Battle Chest

I got The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and one of those Wii Motion Plus controllers.

I got Pokemon White Version

and I got Ratchet and Clank all 4 one. Which is pretty fun but kind of repetetive.

Can't wait to install WCIII on my mac. Very Happy

Nice! What kind of processor does this Mac Mini of your come with? I read some where that there are different versions with correspondingly different processors, obviously of varying prices.

Despite the fact that I don't celebrate Christmas(or any religious holiday for that matter), I got a book about the elements(periodic table of elements), a book about codes and ciphers, a book about practical and common mathematical formulae, a shirt from Alcatraz and my family and I went to California. I am reading the book about cipers and codes now and it is very interesting. :-)

Among other things, my favorite was from my dad. My dad, who is also a computer geek, bought me a copy of NaturallySpeaking. It is a software which uses a microphone, to type for you. It is going to make writing essays SO MUCH EASIER!

lol. Periodic Table Book. Poor guy. I just want to get away from that stuff.

@DB that present sounds like it's from lazy people. But if you want to know about geeks. You should visit my Uncles house. He has all this cool computer stuff. He controlls the online in his computer, so much so that it's a struggle to configure X-Box LIVE XD. But he has all these Sun Microsystems computers and pretty much any computer you could think of, all in this one room, that save data of internet activity on his service. So that way he knows when somebody parks up to his driveway and uses his Wi-Fi. Very Happy Plus he's got this junk room. Well, his junk, my golden treasure room. A ton of 300 gig hard drives, 3 Terabyte HD, (not three hard drives with one terabyte, a hard drive with three terabytes) some boot drives. Old keyboard lying around. Extra RAM, graphics cards, keyboards, speakers. It's so awesome. He has a huge stack of laptops he never uses! He even gave me a keyboard, and some speakers. Awesome speakers that have a headset plugin spot, so you cna plugin a headset, making the speakers mute, and the headset output the sound!

That is why I like it!

My house is the same as your Uncle's house times two because my dad is like me, so there are two nerds/geeks in the house.
