Plug your guitar into the 1/8th inch adapter into the line input.
turn on Magic Garageband, choose Slow Blues, switch to the line in input, and choose "Bluesbreaker" for your sound.
Play or record. You should sound just like Eric Clapton. No joke.
A USB interface is a good way to go, but most of the newer ( newer than 2008 ? maybe even older ones)
Mac line inputs work fine this way. It generally will work and won't break anything. ( You might want to have a final 1/8th" mono to stereo plug ) . It might take a couple of different adapter thingys to get it right.
Yes I have done it with my Mac towers after highly reccomending a USB interface on the Apple site and being informed that it was not necessary for this type of use.
And it's fun.

Do it! I practice with headphones and my guitar plugged into my computer too, the only amp I have is an extremely small little Orange.
I like doing it this way because if I randomly think up some cool lick, I can quickly record it.
