MacBook Pro 13″ mid-2009 (macOS) – A friend gave it in exchange for tech support on his computer. This used laptop was laden with software problems, a bad battery, trackpad, fan, and low memory. I’ve fixed all those except for the faulty audio jack that only works with external headphones and Bluetooth. I tried every trick to fix it. Most recently I replaced the HD with an SSD. That helped a ton. A few seconds to boot from cold rather than minutes. And most recently, August 2018, set up an iMac 2011 for video and photography editing.


Mid August 2019 started my transition away from Android.
