I'm a little disappointed in you Serge. You could have bought 2x GTX580's with that. :naughty:

well, got the laptop yesterday. and what a biotch to get OSX running on it, mostly due to what i had at hand.

couldnt get any of my hacked installers to go. so i ended up going out and buying snow leopard since its so cheap, so now its semi legit anyway.

but then i tried multiple boot CD's and all locked up or crashed or forced reboots, ie, more crashing.

finally, i pulled the HD from the laptop, slapped it in my core 2 quad tower, booted it with iboot and installed from there. then i installed the 10.6.7 update, figuring my disc was 10.6.3 and probly didn't support the i7, and once i transferred the drive back into the laptop and again used iboot to boot from the hard drive, she works

so now i have lan working, and it boots, with the iboot CD, i've still got some work ahead of me though, but its coming.

Hmm interesting way to get OSX on it. Perhaps I should try that with my brother's ASUS laptop.

lol, well, if i had ordered a disc and had it shipped straight from apple, it would probably have the latest update on it and the install would not have required swapping hard drives around. but swapping hard drives around was quicker than waiting for shipping.

so far though, its coming along, sucks i have to work until 8 tonight, ill be going home, and going to bed since i have to be up at 5 tomorrow to get to work. this late shift is only for a day though.

but the laptop is pretty nice, it also has 4 dimm slots for ram, and only one 4gb stick in it, so if i can get a second 4gb stick, ill be set. but i need to get the graphics working first, and booting from hard drive, after that, i really don't care what works and what doesn't, ill have everything i need

i'm sending it back and getting a G53

nvidia optimus won't work with OSX. seems like a waste of a 460m to get the G53 though, but oh well
