Super Silent Upgrade
« on: July 14, 2010, 11:46:55 AM »
So Chuffed :)
 
Wanted to share my news.   Been trying to get a silent upgrade mini but they been going for more than I would like on ebay.  
 
So I settled for 1.42 with ariport card.  Accidentally won it for £150 as even they been going for more than that.
 
 
Quickly conencted up to monitor ,keyboard etc in work  And its actually the 1.5ghz with 64mb vram.  Forget to check RAM but assume its 1GB if silent is that correct?  Got 80 Gig HDD.
 
Super sweet :)

The AI story also indicates that the new minis will ship with faster 5400RPM drives, ATI Radeon 9200 GPUs with up to 64MB of VRAM and 8x double-layer SuperDrives

So I Apart from the ram. I do own the fastest, highest spec released machine capaple of running a next gen Amiga OS there is.
 
Nice.
 
Looking fwd to getting home downloading MorphOS :)
 
Anyone know how much the last version of Mac OS is? Looking at the OS when I quickly booted it in work it ddidnt look like leopard but tiger. is it worth getting leopard ?
 
Thanks
 
PS  Will the about Mac option on the menu tell me if its got a superdrive, whats easiest way to tell.  Never owned an apple producct before, would like this to be my last as well :)

MorphOS on the Mini is REALLY fast. I reg'ed it right away after trying it. OSX IMO is pokey at best on the G4 Mini, even with the max 1 gig ram.

You can buy Leopard for around 70 pounds at the Ebay UK website.

A newer version of Mac OS would eat all your RAM anyway.

To be fair, AmigaOS has more problems with memory fragmentation ;)
