  1. FS: Apple MacBook 2.4 Penryn /// LNIB

    ThinkPad X61 sold, MacBook still available. Any interest?
  2. I'm trying to thin down my collection a bit here, getting ready for an X41 tablet. This laptop is in mint condition. Apple MacBook (Latest white model) -2.4 Ghz Core2 Duo (Penryn) Processor -2 GB RAM -160 GB Hard Drive, 5400 RPM -Intel X3100 Graphics -SuperDrive (CD/DVD Burner) -OS X Leopard with iLife '08, includes restore media -Battery + AC Adapter -AppleCare until July '08 (eligible for upgrade) I bought this brand new, and that's just the way it comes. No scratches, blemishes, or dirt. The battery gets about 5 hours (estimated by OS X). The new aluminum MacBooks are out, but the base model is slower and significantly more expensive. If you like white, this is your chance! Comes with everything - original box, restore DVDs, manuals, etc. $920 Shipped to the continental US. Apple still sells the white MacBook new for $1000, but this machine is in like new condition and has far superior specs. PayPal fees and shipping via FedEx Ground are included in the list price. Check out my eBay feedback here: http://myworld.ebay.com/orchard517/ Pictures available upon request, but it might take a couple of days - I'm temporarily without a card reader. Thanks for looking!
  3. This machine has been great, but I need a laptop for school so it's in need of a new home. Grab it while it's here! Tech Specs: -Intel Core2 Duo Processor @ 2.67 Ghz dual core -Gigabyte P35-DS3R Motherboard (perfect for OSx86) -2 GB DDR2 800 RAM -nVidia 7300 LE video card -CD + DVD Burner with LightScribe -3 Hard Drives, all 7200 RPM SATA ---320 GB Running Mac OS X Leopard ---160 GB for data ---80 GB Running Windows XP Professional -480W Power supply -Cooler Master Centurion 5 case It runs Kalyway with everything working! Sleep, restart, graphics, etc, etc. The only little issue is with updates, but it's a common hackintosh problem. I've been building computers for years, and I know this one's completely reliable. The parts are just a few months old, and they're rock solid. The computer comes installed with genuine Windows XP Pro and MS Office '03. Pictures: Full screenshot w/ XBench results. This was from last month when iATKOS was installed, but you get the picture. Purchase Details: Shipping will be with USPS Priority Mail and the cost within the continental US is $50 added to the price of the PC. Payment will be through PayPal; I am a verified member and it's a safe way to pay. The fees are included - there's no extra charge. I have plenty of eBay feedback here: http://myworld.ebay.com/orchard517/ The price is $550 USD, thanks for looking.
  4. [WTB] hackintosh

    Sorry, I'm not parting it out right now.
  5. [WTB] hackintosh

    Mine is for sale, check the ad here: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/sys/811082298.html Whereabouts are you located?
  6. Modified boot-132 Bootloader

    I'm having a simple but ridiculous problem - I can't eject the Boot 132 CD!! Everything seems to be working fine, then I get to the darwin prompt. The CD spins down as the prompt sits there idle, but it won't let me eject the CD. No combination of button pushing, prying, or cursing has yielded any success. I've even checked the BIOS. What could it be?
  7. Send me a PM if you're interested, or if you have any questions.
  8. Shipping is now included, representing a $50 price drop. Noone's interested in this?
  9. Ah, that's what you were referring to! It's actually a Powerbook G4, not a MacBook Pro; and I bought it broken a little while ago and fixed it myself. I might have kept it, but I'm not interested in a PowerPC Mac.
  10. MBP = MacBook Pro, right? You must have me confused with someone else; this FS is for a Hackintosh desktop.
  11. Price: $625 shipped anywhere in the continental US, or $575 locally if you're in the DC metro area or the Eastern Shore. Compatibility: Fully compatible with Kalyway 10.5.2; the only post-install requirement is a quick and easy audio patch, so installation is very simple. Works great with EFI and very fast. Reason for selling: I'm moving to a dorm for college next semester and would rather have a laptop. This is an awesome desktop and I hate to see it go! Full Specs: -Gigabyte P35-DS3R 2.0 (Peryn compatible) -Xeon 3075 @ 2.67 Ghz., FSB 1333 (Same as Core2 Duo E6750) -2 Gigs DDR2 800 RAM -SATA DVD Burner (DVD+/- R/RW DL Lightscribe) -320 GB WD AAKS Hard Drive (goes great w/ OSx86, very fast) -160 GB Samsung Hard Drive; I use it for data -80 GB Hitachi Hard Drive w/ Windows XP Pro loaded ---All 3 Drives are 7200 RPM SATA -nVidia 7300 LE -The case is a Cooler Master Centurion 5 in good shape, with only some minor daily wear, tear, and a little dust -480W Power Supply Assurance: I have plenty of feedback on eBay, all positive: http://myworld.ebay.com/orchard517/ I built this computer myself, but I've been building and fixing computers for years so I know what I'm doing. You can count on this computer's reliability, and I will stand behind it. It has never been tweaked or overclocked. Pictures:
  12. I've never used the DS3R's RAID function (though I'm pretty sure you can set up a software array in Disk Utility), but it's one heck of a board. As long as you buy a SATA optical drive and enable AHCI, installing leopard is a breeze. I was deciding between what I have now and a Bad Axe 2 a couple of months ago, but with the DS3R you can use the cheaper (and faster) FSB 1333 processors. IDE doesn't work well, but my floppy drive does, along with all of my SATA stuff (in the orange ports).
  13. I rebuilt my system with OSx86-friendly hardware a couple of months ago, and it's been running like a dream ever since. I have all my photos, music and documents on it, and I can't remember the last time I used Windows. The Mac Pro is the only Apple machine that's faster than mine; and the Mac Pro sucks down the electricity and uses slow ECC RAM. I'm extremely happy with my current setup, and I don't see myself switching until Apple releases a viable midrange desktop.
  14. Want Hackintosh! [Buy] [Hire}

    Oops, my mistake. You're right, it is the 65nm version, which makes it the second-latest generation. Still super-fast though.
