Well, Rich, that isn't completely true. People have managed to get OS X to run on a 1010 - but badly. It is not something I would recommend to others.

Drjay425....good luck with the GMA500

PS. yeah Steve, I know it can, but it aint worth the time or the effort for the end result that you get, remember a few months ago when I told ya I was gonna try with my spare 160gb (original drive before upgrading to 640gb) and even you told me back then it would be a waste of time
