Cell analogy to a Mac computer? PLEASE HELP!!!! :)

Ok I am doing a project in Biology and we have to do a cell analogy project. My partner really wants to do a mac computer. I don't know much about macs. I thought I knew a decent amount about computers until I started this project. I need to take the parts of a cell and make an analogy to a Mac computer... Please help? Here are the parts and their definitions:

Cell wall: out side the plasma membrane, supporting layer of a cell.

nuclear membrane/envelope: surrounds the nucleus and seperates nucleus from the cytoplasm.

Nucleus: Inside the nuclear membrane, controls many of the cells activities.

Nucleolus: inside the nucleus, where the assembly of ribosomes begins.

Ribosome: found throughout the cytoplasm, site of ____ production (sorry I didn't fill that ____ in on the worksheet)!

Cytoplasm: clear gelatinous fluid, holds organelles in place, diffusion meduim.

Endoplasmic reticulum: inside the Eukaryotic cell, where the lipid compunds of the cell membrane are assembled.

Golgi Apparatus: flattened sacs of tubular membrane, modify sort and package protiens.

Vacule: sacs; usually in animals or they are very small; very large in plants, storage.

Lysosomes: sacs that contain digestive enzymes, break things down.

Chloroplasts: green, capture light, contain chlorophyll, captures energy from the sun and converts it.

Mitochondria: have double membrane (inner and outer), provides energy to things without chloroplasts.

Centrioles: occurs in pairs, organizes cell division.

Cilia: short numerous hair like structures, motion.

Flagella: few long whip like structures, motion.

Thanks!

Macs are 99% identical to any other computer.

Just write it like you would for a PC and then print it out on paper that cost twice as much.

Steve Jobs would like to try and convince you otherwise i still dont believe it though

Whats wierd is that my bio teacher assigned us a cell analogy essay Friday

they rag on Windows, if you notice. ie, I have never seen an ad complain about Linux. (linked in case you or anyone else didn't know what "Linux" was or that you could run things on a PC other than Windows)

yup, ragging on one alternative operating system, but not every other computer not made by Apple.
