i needed windows for some occasional use of a rare software utility,,
since all my macs are in flux - i decided to 'splash' out on a 2nd hnd net book... ( HK$ 600 hahahah! )
figured it was cheaper than friggin around with stuff I dont wanna stuff up on my business mac's
actually now the missus wants to commandeer this netbook ( my wife has never ever bought a computer in her life - she just inherits them - and now she's after inheriting this.... )
so??? is it safe? how do I know that the rather pleasant previous owner hasnt got it cover in spy wear etc - phishing etc?
for my self I never planned to connect it to the internet - rather I would USB stick some files on it - run this application on those files... an pass those media files back into mac OS world via USB stick
but now my wife would want to put in on my WIFI which is a whole different thing?
any advice - its got windows 7 on it... ( thats what I needed!! )
