Slim your Mac article - 12-13-2008, 11:01 AM
I know a lot of this is already covered elsewhere in the forums but some people may find this article on ways to slim down and speed up a Mac useful:
Hacked MacBook Air SuperDrive. Real HD LED.
Quad booting OS X, Ubuntu 8.1, XP Pro and Windows 7.

Yeah, I read that and thought about posting it here, but we've already got all those suggestions, and we even took it a couple steps further, like turning off spotlight and using a non journaling file system. As for turning off special effects and such, I really don't think it hurts performance at all, I even have them turned on on my son's 800MHz G4 iMac with Leopard installed on it.
