MSI x-slim x600 Support?

01 May 2010 - 05:57 AM

I Have this MSI x600 Laptop that i have a deep interest in putting OSX on. It deffinitly looks the part lol. So anyway here is some prelimiary information on the laptop itself

It has...
Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 @1.4GHz
ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4330
RealTek HD Audio
RealTek PCIe GBE Family Controller (Ethernet) - RTL8167
Intel WiFi Link 5350 & Intel WiFi Link 5100 (Which ever is supported id switch out for the one that is most supported)
BisonCam, NB Pro (Webcam, hope this is supported)
ElanTech PS/2 MultiTouch TouchPad (Hope this is supported aswell)

Do i have any hope in ever seeing leopard on this machine? if so, i need help as to what i need to get to get it working.

Thanks in advanced everyone :D.

Built-in iSight (MacBook) PC Mod

23 October 2009 - 06:05 AM

Hey everyone, first post i believe lol. Anyway! recently Ive been feeling quite adventurous. And as such id like to take it upon my laptop i recently got (MSI X-Slim 600). Great laptop, love its design, reminds me of the simplicity apple does with there macbooks.

I gave it only 1 upgrade thus far, and that was taking out the rather slow 320GB 5200rpm drive and swapping it with the Seagate momentous drive 500GB 7200rpm. Great improvement.

It hurts to know the CPU is soldered onto the motherboard... If there was some way that was upgradable id do it in a heartbeat. The Intel SU3500 @ 1.40 GHz with 3MB Cache is proving anything but being a beast. I feel its essentialy an ATOM 270 on steroids. Not very noteworthy. IF only there was someway to upgrade it to a Intel Core2 Duo SU9600.... Maybe someday.

But back to the Point of this thread
After completely dismantling my laptop and analyzing its innards (i am by no means proficient in hardware reverse engineering) i realized the cable that goes to the built in webcam (Some BisonCam) is 5 pin (albeit its own proprietary connector i believe) goes straight down the back of the LCD where it joins in the LCD cable. (i cant see anything other than assuming it is together cause all the electrical tape is covering the evidence) and from there its just 1 cable that connects to the motherboards LCD connector. its some Female connector type, and its 40pin.

Why i was doing this (main inspection) was to see if its possible to just replace the BisonCam with the Builtin iSight Assembly i recently purchased and is in my hands. The iSight itself seems to be USB although my main impression was the connector it has is 8pins which i assume is the USB?. and it has a 3-pin cable sticking out of it, which from observation seems to be coming from the built in microphone.

First picture is of the iSight Assembly, Second is the built-in BisonCam, third is the LCD+USB? Connector

Any Experienced peeps know how i should go about this?

I should have probably taken a picture of the back of the LCD to show you, although it toke enough time to dismantle it, and I'm a student full time. So until i have some spare time ill take those photos. And the LCD Connector.
