Truth be told, when I just played around for a bit, it was extremely fast. But when I tried to take that photo, it was taking forever! When I have it full screen it works perfectly, but when I have it that small size, its really ****ty.

At least I'll be able to run FL Studio.
Haha, that your parallels install on your MBP?

Yes. It works VERY WELL! I'm really happy with it, and it has this "Coherence Mode" where I can just run the application, without having the whole windows 7 interface up. If you can see in the bottom right, theres a new folder that was created for Windows Applications, and it has the list, and all the apps, and I just click and it opens up in a mac interface. Absolutely wonderful.

I'm installing this on my sister's PC now, and I just told a few friends, and they're so jelly. aawweeee yeeeaaaahhhhhh.

Yea VMWare has a similar unity mode where you can run windows apps without the entire windows desktop. It's pretty nice.

Any of you guys use MacPorts? What a great piece of software. It's so easy to install different packages and make sure all the dependencies are there.

Screenshot below. Machine is fully functional, with graphics acceleration, keyboard/mouse, audio, WiFi, and ethernet all working. Need to play with smbios.plist to enable the CPU states (so it slows when battery is used) and get a new kext to enable the battery and sleep states. Besides those minor things (add 2 lines to a text file and install 2 kext's), machine is running 10.7.2 and good to go.



Nate, if you want to run OSX, I suggest you use retail installations (i.e. purchase Snow Leopard and/or Lion). Not only do you gain a better understanding of how it all works, you also support the software (despite the fact it's a legal grey area). I suggest you follow the tutorials found here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/

My Snow Leopard and Lion installs were both done using a retail copy of Snow Leopard (10.6.3) I purchased at Best Buy, and a copy of Lion I purchased on the app store.

You can buy D630's recertified on Newegg.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834200139

For the cost of about $350 (machine + copy of Snow Leopard + copy of Lion + Mini-PCIe WiFi card) you can have your very own Macbook Pro.

Links:
Tutorial: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.p...-lion-on-d630/
Native WiFi card: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Broadcom...item1e697ae7e1

Buy SL copy at store (e.g. Best Buy), Lion on App Store.
