Hi everyone! this is my first post on the insanelymac forum! I'm trying to get mavericks running in virtualbox on a lubuntu host. My machine is an intel core i3 laptop with 4gb ram (3.6 usable) and so it struggles a bit. The problem is that even with 2984mb of ram given to the VM (bearing in mind lubuntu only needs a few hundred MB ram to run) it has periods of about 5 minutes where OS X will be unusably slow and even the mouse will only move in small jumps every 2 seconds. Then it will return to normal for 5 minutes and then it will go back to dead slow. This even happens when it's just on the desktop, doing little else. I'm considering adding more ram to make it 8gb to try and fix this problem, however, my other option is to take the HDD (80gb 5400rpm sata) from my old laptop and attach it via a usb 3 port to my i3 laptop. Then install a proper hackintosh on there (keeping my 4gb ram) instead of running a virtual machine with 8gb. (Btw. don't want to install OS X on my i3 laptop's hard drive because it's not actually mine and I don't want to mess it up). So which option would you recommend? I could do both but I'd rather just do one. Thank you!
supersaiyansubtlety posted a topic in Internet(s), Servers, and NetworksHello, I recently set up a new modem/wireless router combination in part to have the convenience of a hard drive accessible on my network. Unfortunately I've been sorely disappointed by the transfer speeds to the drive. Here is all the relevant information I can think of: Router: Linksys EA6300 AC1200 Modem: ARRIS / Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Hard Drive: Seagate Packup Pluss 8TB USB 3.0 (STDT8000100) Laptop: MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X 10.11.4 Download speeds are 50-90Mbps, here is a link to a test I did while writing this: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/5315226729 Also the router is sitting below the desk my laptop is usually on, so they are literally feet apart from each other. The primary source of speed disappointment has been with torrents through Vuze. With the hard drive connected via USB port, total download speeds were usually 5-8 MB/s, and now they only rarely get up to 1 MB/s and are often in the area of 50KB/s. Does anyone know of anything I can do to improve upon this? Thanks
