The Possibility of an AMD MacBook

26 October 2013 - 02:07 PM

It was almost gonna happen with the MacBook Air had AMD been able to provide Llano APUs in volumes according to this article: http://goo.gl/DVS67L

 

Other than the volume issue, the CPU in the Llano APU won't be able to give much performance. With AMD's new generation Kaveri APUs with apparently a different architecture than the old Trinity and Richland line (which used Piledriver) and even better GPU tech, the odds of an AMD MacBook Air is quite good for both budget and power for Apple users since Mac Pros will be running 2 FirePro GPUs. 

 

To be clear, I do like the Intel Macs and I am strongly against having AMDs on iMacs and MacBook Pros but having them on the MacBook Air could really be something awesome (although I am again strongly against it if they throw in an A4 MacBook Air).

How to create Lion USB on Windows w/o Snow Leopard?

15 October 2013 - 11:58 AM

I have a snail-paced (768 KBp/s) internet connection and Snow Leopard is not being sold in my country so I can only be bothered with one download. I already have the source of the .iso/.dmg that is retail (its legal don't worry. My cousin in the US who had a Mac purchased it for me as a birthday gift and got the .dmg file) and I need to turn it to a bootable drive. Do I just write to the USB with TransMac or PowerISO? Or do I need to install a bootloader? If so how do I do that without a Mac?
