We were talking about making one of these, We have a linux thread so why not a mac one.

Here you can ask about mac problems, mac programs, mac buying advice. Or just talk about macs in general.

Please don't turn this into a flame fest.

He doesn't have the disc so I think the only way would be for me to buy a disc, correct? it comes with os x 10.4 but it seems like thats more expensive than the new one which seems odd..can a not so current macbook like that one run snow leopard without problems? I'd like to fix it up with the new OS, and also replacing the missing down arrow key haha. any suggestions of where to find that as well?
thanks a lot for the help.

repost so it doesn't get overlooked due to new thread lol.

so... randomly when i go to turn on my computer it will make it to the blue screen, or the gray screen or even my desktop for a few seconds then just go black. Moving the mouse or hitting a key doesn't "awaken" it. After this happens ill have to force a shutdown then power back up and it might happen again or it might not. last night i had to go though that cycle like 10 times. this morning it started up just fine.

Ideas?

also. i cant caffeine to work on my MBP. idk why. with it on, the second i close the lid it goes to sleep.

NVM, i just downloaded insomniaX

Put 2 1tb drives in it, and have time machine back up my external drives to it?

you can get snow leopard for 30. i would just do an upgrade so you dont loose all nice programs like pages,keynote if it even has them. or you can just clean install snow and get all that later.

Don't I already need the older version of snow leopard to do the upgrade? Is the full version or upgrade version the same price/same disc?
Also can the disc be used to install it multiple times or on multiple machines? Like could I borrow the disc or buy used

To do the 30 dollar upgrade you do need leopard. The full version is the Mac Box Set. It is 160. Included are iLife 09 and iWork 09. You can borrow disks if it is from the family pack.
Anyone in here have any idea on how to hackintosh. Once I get my old PC working, I want to run OSX 10.6.

I've read the $30 upgrade works the same way as the $160 one.

It does.

When I got my new HDD I just popped my Snow Leopard upgrade disc in, partitioned the new HDD, and then installed a fresh copy of Snow Leopard.

Well now I'm confused lol. Can anyone clarify? I'd really rather not put $160 into the thing..

Edit: didn't see those last posts. $30 sounds much better. Anyone have one of the discs I'd need laying around? PM me lol.

Disregard my statement from before, i just read the site again. It said the 160 dollar version is the best not the only. Sorry to scare you.
The 30 dollar snow leopard should work fine.
