Default hardware upgrade and dvd install of mac osx complete - 04-03-2009, 03:40 AM

I love my Dapple Mini 9.
I have now had two days of non stop use with it and its great.
Only took me about half a day to get used to the small keyboard.
I think OSX runs smoother on this little guy than ubuntu did.

I originally bought one of those $189 refurbs and just ordered a 32gb drive and more memory from newegg.
I did have one tiny fiasco. One of my screws stripped while removing my SSD and I had to drill it out. That was a little stressful. I was so worried i was going to slip and drill through my motherboard.

But in the end, its a success. I got all my apps... plus starcraft and diablo 2 on my Dapple and still got 10GB free space.
If anyone is interested.... I posted a bunch of pictures of me doing it plus some detailed instructions on how I installed it with an external DVD drive.
