Apple laptops will work anywhere, just like any other PC. WiFi however can be a problem to configure if you've only ever used a PC. But honestly, no harder than using a PC with 3rd party hardware. LAN over a copper wire is just plug and play by default on a DHCP enabled network.

  1. First, if they use WEP to secure the device you will need to have her use the long generated HEX key as your password for the WEP, not the pass phrase. i.e. If your password for WEP is "Rosebud"; use the key it generates in the router which looks like "A9FE34AD..." to access the wireless router; not "Rosebud". WPA and WPA2 doesn't have this issue.
  2. Secondly, if the radio on the router is B/G, the laptop has to have a B/G wireless radio built in (most do); but if it uses something else, she may need to get PC card with the appropriate 802.11 protocol on it.
  3. If she hasn't enabled SAMBA (Windows File Sharing) - Nobody else will be able to see her unless they have a Mac or Linux machine.
If this is for her home and she is uncomfortable configuring it. I would have her ship you the router and the laptop, set them up, then send them back. Honestly, the differences between Windows and Mac are so minor there is nothing one can do the others can't. If she is having trouble it may be better to just preconfigure it.

Bagaimana untuk download bluetooth ke dalam laptop acer saya jenis aspire 4730z


Seperti mana yang saya tahu, aspire 4730z telah dipasang sistem Intergrated Bluetooth 2.0 didalamnya. Awak cuma perlu aktifkan aplikasi bluetooth, Biasanya pada taskbar, terdapat icon bluetooth. Alat untuk awak buat sambungan mesti on bluetooth terlebih dahulu. jika bluetooth pd laptop aktif, aawak perlu mengesan alatan yg aktif, atau anda boleh cuba mengguna hanphone yang ada bluetooth, cuba hantar satu gambar melalui bluetooth. jika hanphone x dpt mengesai laptop awak, maknanya bluetooth pd laptop x aktif..klau jumpa mknanya aktif, cuba hantar, tetapi bila dia berfungsi, awk perlu mengesahkan pd laptop utk menerima data yg dihantar melalui handphone td. awk juga bleh set folder mana yg ditetapkan sebagai folder lalai utk menyimpan setiap data penerimaan..

My friend gave me a i pod and it does not let me lisiten to songs or record song


Make sure you've got a headphone in if Its a 1st gen since the 1st gen does have external speakers.
If that doesn't work then its an issue and thats probably the reason your friend gave it to you. :|

Hello I agree with benwabnick, I would also try to repair disk permissions and volume using the disk utility tool that is on the install DVD (hold the C key to boot from DVD, then choose english language, go to utilities, and choose disk utility).
