  1. ASUS made an adapter for using Pentium M in P4 mainboards.
  2. You can run Einstein,a Newton emulator.
  3. Has someone here fitted a 7455 MDD module into the G4 Digital Audio?
  4. http://sourceforge.net/projects/decompiler/ written with .NET and is not complete yet.
  5. I guess its because of chips manufactured in a smaller die size on the 6400/6500 that need less power.
  6. This is just a disguised 486 router + wlan card development was a bit rushed.
  7. 1.Nintendo did the same mistake on the Gamecube and Wii,only 256 kb cache. 2. A CPU upgrade manufacturer found out that there is only a minimal speed gain if they use a DDR RAM cache on a G4.
  8. Hey imac 600, its possible to use most old PC video cards in all G3/G4/G5 after flashing with a OF rom.
  9. Congatulations you can now run A/UX ! (if you can cure your patient)
  10. Are the 700's overclockable to 800 mhz?
  11. Apple called the board also "Tanzania" and it was used in clones but these have PS/2 ports while the 4400 used ADB. The 4400 is not that bad as a 5200/6200 from my view. It is a really cheap machine to test the logic boards and and make a alternative to a cheap PC.
  12. I liked the old IBM PS/2 keyboards with magnetic plastic. I own a Apple Pro keyboard and the older bondi blue one and a design keyboard. I had a broken looking 1640,that keyboard was really different.
  13. The sawtooth mainboard fits in a G3 but the cables to the front panel are different. Sawtooth heatsinks are a example of a not-so-good design,perhaps a prototype overheated and they needed a fast solution. Its a good idea for a rev 1 G3 and performance goes 20% up according to lowendmac.com
  14. Its a 68000 computer,almost right here. The 68EZ328 CPU was also used in Sony Clie(')

    Graphite UFO.

    i thought there were also PC(or whatever else) compatible base stations from 2002-03.They have 2 ethernet ports.Is it possible to convert an old UFO via flashing the ROM to working with PCs in a network or doing router works like the MIPS based NSLU2? This may be a good theme for the "I replaced new Hardware with older" thread.
  16. this reminds me on commonly experienced 6100 problems.
  17. 260$ may be worth for to pay a 9700 prototype but not for a normal 9600.
  18. Don't give it up. You can sell or loan it to someone else for repair.

    New Suv

    SUVs are mostly not really off-road capable unlike a Land Rover or a similar car.
  20. On the X86 there are 3 types of instructions: Integer instructions(most code) Floating Point instructions(complex math,needed an FPU on 386) Vector instructions(comparable to altivec called MMX,SSE2/3/4) The Hackintosh OS X emulates vector instructions on A PIII using an earlier version of the vector extension. Most OS X system code runs in integer instructions, so expect slowdowns at running .apps like garage band or gimp.
  21. A/UX is a very special Unix system. Mixed from Uniplus,BSD System V,and SunOS. It even supports different file systems like NFS via the sun vfs. It has the system V FS ,STREAMS and supports TCP/IP and select() and BSD signals. It contains mixup code so that programs can use the GUI routines in the ROM. The only release where I have kernel source code runs only on the original Mac II and does not support all the hardware and periphals.
