  1. PowerPC G4 800Mhz & Leopard

    I agree with you! I think the latest PowerMacs ( from the QuickSilver ) are very capable Leopard machines if they have the original graphic cards upgraded.
  2. PowerPC G4 800Mhz & Leopard

    Writing from Leopard/Safari 3.0 on my 800 MHz QS 2002! Just for testing Leopard I've used a new 80 GB ATA drive on a firewire case attached to my Powerbook. After the clean install I swapped the HD to the PowerMac and everything went OK. I knew beforehand that the graphic card would be too weak to power Time Machine so I didn't even try it. I also disabled the mirroring on the Dock because I was seeing some tearing over the Dock which I assumed was due to the graphic card. Problem solved! In terms of performance, Leopard on this Mac isn't either faster or slower but it is obvious that it hasn't enough muscle to fully profit from Leopard. I was also amazed that every app that I've tried installed and worked fine. All in all, a good experience.
  3. Do girls like Mac users ?

    "Do girls like Mac users ?" Of course they do! We're more pretty, intelligent, creative and sensible than the majority of Windows users! Long live the Mac!

  8. Best Digital Video Websites

    A site I cherish is Mike Curtis HD for Indies ( www.hdforindies.com ) that he describes as "High Definition Video for Independent Filmmakers - A How To Guide for Indies on a Budget". A lot of good info on this blog and a lot of links for other good sites like Creative Cow, Cinematography and many others. Bookmark it!
  9. GigaByte GA-945G-S3 motherboard thread

    Did you tried this? Where is located in the system the boot image and chime so one can extract it and use instead of the common BIOS image (this feature is called FaceWizard by Gigabyte)?
  10. iTunes 7 - Politics

    Don't expect Apple to do their job worried with old SSE2 cpus or our hackintoshes at all.
  11. I think that your hackintosh kicks the ass out of any mini, even the new 1,83 Ghz. So unless you're looking for mini's small footprint, silence and beauty I would wait until 2007.
