  1. Anyone have any tips for getting Powerbooks onto a Linksys wireless router with security? I am running a Windows box. My two roommates have Powerbook G4s (15" and a 12"). They can get on the network fine, unless I use WEP to keep other people out. Then they get this error/; "There was an error joining the AirPort network XXXXX" I have also tried to use restricted MAC addresses, with varying levels of success, because for some reason it freaked out my router and crashed it last time I tried it. Though it did work once with my girlfriend's HP laptop. anyone have an problems or solutions for Linksys and OSX?

    Got OSX installed, but a few minor probs.

    first thing i would do is use the search function. these are problems most people have... search for your video card, search for your motherboard, search for your wireless chip, search for resolution.

    OSX 10.4.6 JaS says AMD64 4000+ is 3GHz

    okay... i just got worried because i thought that the random system hangs i experience might be caused by CPU overheats. the system locks up generally 15 minutes into usage, which is sometimes a tell tale sign of overheating. i think it has more to do with the forcedeth network driver i'm using.
  5. My "About this Mac" window and the System Profiler display my AMD Athlon64 4000+ as 3GHz when the CPU actually runs at 2.4GHz... now, is this a mis-displayed number? or is this system being dangerously overclocked? is there a way to confirm it?
  6. can a person just as easily upgrade MacBook ram? in would opt for the lowest RAM option in my soon to be purchased MBP and upgrade it myself if that is the case.
  7. how will the GMA graphics affect performance? my girlfriend is planning to get one. she is in advertising, and will likely be using Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign a lot (will pick up CS3 when it comes out). How does the performance on a 2GHz Macbook compare to a 2GHz MBP?
