  1. FS: Intel Core 2 Duo T5600

    ipod sold but processor still available!
  2. I have an Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 mobile processor up for grabs. I pulled this from my working Mac mini when I upgraded the CPU in that. Perfect CPU for those looking to upgrade their old mini's from a Core Solo or Core Duo to a Core 2 Duo. I will let this go for $80 shipped OBO. As a note, I only accept Non-CC PayPal. Thanks for looking! P.S. Sorry for the ridiculously low quality images. The only camera I have right now is my cell phone camera. Oh, and you can find my heatware here: http://www.heatware.com/eval.php?id=44969
  3. BuildSmart, I said OBO. And just so you know, you're generally supposed to privately message someone about this kind of stuff and not troll their threads. It's not appreciated in any FS forum including AnandTech, HardForum, etc. In any case, my original proposition still stands.
  4. Spaces Transitions? Cube, Flip, etc.?

    YouControl: Desktops does this
  5. USB got super slow again

    I feel that the FireWire implementation here is better than the USB one just because the FireWire upgrade won't need any serious modifications to existing hardware. On top of that, the USB 3.0 standard is slated to use fiber optic cables (taken from Wikipedia). Those things are easy to break, and for most end-users, that's going to be a pain.
  6. What does it matter? As long as Apple gets their sh*t fixed, I'm happy. Microsoft is... well... disliked because of their insane amount of updates that hardly fix any problems. Apple releases plenty of updates, sure, but it takes out a lot of bugs. And as a side note, 10.5.2 better fix tons.
  7. Rumor Roundup

    Ahh, that's my mistake. But, when you think about it, it's not even Microsoft's fault all the time when the wireless is booted. It can't be. A lot of wireless drivers are provided by the card manufacturers. For Apple, on the other hand, they provide all their own drivers, putting them at fault.
  8. Rumor Roundup

    Just because the problems are just kind of annoying (extent of annoyance varying from person to person), does NOT mean that they are not critical problems. And just because these problems are not as SEVERE as Vista's does NOT mean that they are not critical. Personally, I'd say that problems like wireless constantly dropping and Leopard forcing you to hard boot due to kernel panics, etc, are VERY CRITICAL problems. Shoot, not even Vista had any wireless problems. 10.5.2 better fix all this stuff. Speed upgrade? That's nice, but where's the stability? I'd rather having something that will work forever without crashing rather than something that will work faster and crash more than I care to think about. On that note, I'm switching back to Tiger this week as soon as I can find space to back everything up onto. The only feature of Leopard I used was Spaces, anyways. As for UI, I can fix that in Tiger with UNO; and as for spaces, I can just use You Control: Desktops. Unless 10.5.2 fixes a lot of the bugs I've heard of and experienced in Leopard, I'm probably not going to switch back until 10.5.6 or so.
  9. I'm not going to lie: Leopard has crashed at least 10 times on me since I've installed it on launch day. And I'm on an actual Mac! And no, I'm not stupid and all the programs I have have been updated for Leopard. Besides, the only programs I leave on nearly 24/7 are Safari and Mail. And Leopard usually crashes when its coming back from screen saver when I leave it on overnight.
