OK so I got a Dell Mini 9 and made it a Mac Mini 9 and was trying to see if i could get it to back up wirelessly to my Atom 330 hackintosh and of course the Answer is yes.


This is perfect for the person who has an awsome router (Dlink655) and doesnt want to spend $500 on a Time Capsule. Here is what i used


Winsis Wi-08 Black SGCC / ABS Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 200W Power Supply - Retail

SAMSUNG HD642JJ 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (Bare Drive) - OEM

Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model KVR667D2/2GR - Retail

Intel BOXD945GCLF2 Atom 330 Intel 945GC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo - Retail


You can actually use 2 SATA hard drives and because you can install from a flash drive you dont have to have a optical drive. the whole thing is only $230 shipped. The low power of the atom makes it perfect for this application as a headless NAS.
