Making my ThinkPad run OSX


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I own this notebook:


Lenovo Thinkpad R61

Intel 965M Chipset

Intel C2D T7100 2.1 GHz

2GB RAM 667 MHz

nVidia Quadro NVS 140M

Intel 4965AGN Wireless LAN

Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet

Analog Devices HD Audio (Soundmax HD Audio)


Now I know the WLAN / Ethernet devices are known to be bad with OSX, and so is the audio device. Video should also not be easy, but as I read, there do exist ways to get the nVidia 140m working with 3d acceleration and so on. I will need the notebook mainly for web development and programming.


The most important thing to me is the WLAN device. I heard there is a popular Atheros alternative to the Intel 4965AGN - What's the exact model name? I NEED IT


As soon as I have a working access to the internet in OSX on the thinkpad, I will go on further from there.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
