I bought my first Macbook in 2008, the tail end of the Tiger OS (upgraded to Leopard). Now I am using a MBP (purchased in 2013) for my day-to-day usage.
There is nothing wrong with the old Macbook, but I got the new one as I was worried about an inevitable lack of security updates as my machine got older. I’d like to keep using my Macbook, since the hardware is still functioning really well. It does have an outdated hard drive capacity (160GB, compared to my new MBP’s 750GB), which means storage might not be the ultimate ideal use (I have a 320GB ext HD, but that’s full now so gonna have to get a new one).
Would love to know how I can continue to make use of my 2008 macbook.
- Should I completely wipe the hard drive and ‘start again’?
- What can I still use my macbook for (short of connecting to any networks for fear of security risks)?
- Is it worth continuing to use my old macbook on the Internet at all?
