Make a grade It is a weekly series of Bradley Chambers involved in Apple's education. Bradley has managed Apple devices in educational environments since 2009.

Even before Intel's transition, we had a dongle. The first Mac I owned was Powerbook G4 (Side note: it was a wonderful laptop). There were two dongles in the box.
