Made the switch to OS X. I couldn’t be happier. I put it on a 20 gig fast ATA drive on the PM 9500. I know it could be a lot faster than it is but it works mostly fine for me now. I see the slowdown in speed as inspiration for getting a better mac. The Intel machine is now sitting on the sidelines, with it’s own monitor, it’s become a glorified DVD/TV player now.
