Ok I sold my old IBook on ebayand ended up buying an Acer Extensa 4620 (there are a ton of models) And Hope to run OSX on that. I have downloaded so far tiger builds from uphuck and also leopard builds from uphuck and the brazil or whatever release it's called. I have REPLACED or at least ordered from ebay a Dell 1490 card I think it is (PCIE WLAN) to replace the stock unit as I hear it works out of the box in OSX. What problems with my other hardware such as sound and video may I encounter on this machine? Wich of the release I downloaded should I hit up first? I PREFER to run Leopard but will run Tiger if it is a must.
