My NAS MacPro

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For my latest machine, I had one of those QNAP or Synology NAS systems in mind when planning the whole thing. Of course I want to run OS X on it, while being more powerful, energy efficient and with as little noise as possible (it will sit next to my TV in the living room – in a cupboard though) and with ECC RAMs to ensure data integrity (I just want them !! :) ).

 

Now I use the following components (Prices in US$ from Newegg or Amazon):

Overall price: $977.90 – not too bad :)
