Now that I have the PowerBook G3 Lombard and the necessary hardware for everyday use, we'll look at the software I used in Iraq when I had periods of months at a time without Internet access.

When I got my Lombard and installed Panther, it was in fact the first time I had ever used Mac OS X. I was blown away by the number of great features. The Lombard turn out to be a very good machine to learn this new version of the Mac OS.

DVD playing was best in OS 9 with Apple's DVD Player, which takes advantage of the Lombard's built-in hardware DVD decoder. If you must watch a DVD in OS X, VLC was good (but a bit choppy).

I am not a big gamer; I mostly just play FPS. The Lombard did not disappoint me - it was stable and loyal to me in any situation. I used my Lombard in 135° Fahrenheit heat, and the fan was blowing hard. I could hardly see the display because of the sun, but it kept on working.

This ends my series on the Lombard as a field computer in Iraq. Next time I'm going to talk about networks.

As always, feedback and comments are welcomed. LEM
