If I can switch the always on display off on the 5, I would. Plus, the 5 has the ECG detection whereas the SE doesn't. Other than that they seem to be pretty much the same watch.

Then why don’t you get a 4 and save even more money?

I appreciate it but I'm hesitant to buy any electronics like that off eBay.

Does anyone know where I can find copies of OS's online for my 2008 macbook pro? I believe my machine was maxed out at El Capitan
It crashed last night and for the life of me I am unable to find the physical discs :(

you could put the machine into recovery mode then re-install the operating system. Mac hasn't made physical OS discs in a long time.

This is a late 2008 MBP 2.8 duo and it was been an absolute warrior for me. I am hoping it's just the drive... but from what I have read it might be the cable connecting to the drive. Amazon is getting us a new drive tomorrow by 5pm ;) we will start there.
Luckily the last time machine was only 5 days ago

12 years use out of a computer is quite the feat.

A little update for ya. Took out the corrupted Crucial 500 drive and dropped a new Crucial 1TB drive into it, re-installed El Capitan and restored from last Time Machine (only 5 days before crash) back up and it appears all is good now.
12 years and counting...
Love my MBP :clap:

You know how you already have a ton of iPhone charging bricks laying around the house? Well, in order to save *the environment*(read *money*), we’ve only included a cable! Simply grab any of your many many existing iPhone charging bricks and plug in the...ooooooh, drymount. I’m not telling Tim, you tell him...

Anyone have a suggestion for a reputable place to get a cheap iPhone? Even a 7 is ok. Kid broke his and he ain’t getting an upgrade.
