Its six pages long.

Don't cheat...Wink ...

It's all for fun...

What kind of a Mac Geek are you Test

According to the test : I am a Young Padwan...


Even after 25 years with Macs... I apparently still have much to learn.

Fine by me... Very Happy

PS : Ignore the Intel remark...Clearly the test is showing its age...

It should be noted that you will have to sign up for a dating site to get the results.

Otherwise, I guess I'm just a newb! I'm not sure about some of the questions though. I would rather have a Pippin, because I already have a Newton, and a iPod - But how would they know?

Young Padawan

You scored 60% Old School, 70% OS X Knowledge, 56% Trivia, and 77% Power User!

You probably only took this test to show off, but you're on your way to being a Mac Master.
You may be young, or just relatively new to the Mac, but you make up for it with enthusiasm and knowledge. Maybe you came from the Amiga world or moved to PCs or NeXT for a while before returning to the fold.

MacOS X was just the next in the line of the transitions you've been through over the years, and you're probably looking forward to Intel. You may have a set of bookmarks for Mac rumor sites that you check regularly.

Your Analysis (Vertical line = Average)

You scored 60% on Old School, higher than 78% of your peers.

You scored 70% on OS X knowledge, higher than 82% of your peers.

You scored 56% on Trivia, higher than 57% of your peers.

You scored 77% on Power User, higher than 98% of your peers.

Surprised I did poorly with trivia. I'm usually good with that stuff.

For someone who has only 6 months experience with a Mac Mini, your really not that far behind the rest of us in practical knowledge. Wink

Just goes to show how much human engineering has been put into OS X to make it intuitive.Cool
