My Mac Book Pro, only about three and a half years old, is pretty well dead because of the way I have abused it. I’ve treated it like a powerful desktop, hanging all kinds of displays and drives off it, leaving it plugged in for months with the lid closed. The battery is swollen and the touch pad does not work well because of the swelling. The other day I tried to add one more thing. Ppfztt.
I’m relaxing it with a Mac Mini. Should be just fine.
In the meantime I’ve been using my 2010 Mac Pro to run Logos for my Bible study. In 2010 it was state of the art. Now it’s a server. It is a few OSes behind and thus can’t run the latest Logos. But it’s working fine for the purpose.
