Re: MacBook Air External DVD on Other Macs?

There's really no logical reason for Apple to stop people from using the AirDrive with other Macs. It should work just fine. I imagine it would look great under a mini. :)

Re: Yikes!

I wouldn't get a Yikes! G4 if I were you. Sawtooths have more modern standards such as AGP and the same processor slot as all subsequent PowerMac G4 models, for example. The Yikes! G4 is essentially a Blue & White G3 with a G4 processor.

Re: Best sub $500 consumer Mac

Ooh yeah. If you want to go Intel Mac mini, make sure it's a dual-core. I've heard that the Core Solo's performance is very poor in comparison, and the difference in price is minor.

Re: Best sub $500 consumer Mac

At that price, the two options that come to mind would be a) a used/on sale Mac mini b) a used PowerMac G4. Both would allow her to keep monitor, mouse and keyboard.

Re: How to Grow Info-Mac

A good start would be to publicize Info-Mac's re-opening on mainstream Mac news sites.

Re: mac cube upgrade

Here's a good thread @ the cubeowner.com forums that lists possible cube video card upgrades, as well as known limitations or dysfuctions.

Looks like it may be a little outdated, but it should be a good resource nonetheless.
