I can't imagine using a computer that slow.

You can build a 3.0ghz amd quad core PC for about $400. It will be faster than your ibook and mini combined, five times over.

I used that solution and it worked fine.

Don't count on being able to use netflix comfortably though. It does lag quite a bit.

So why do these supertalent drives run so well when they benchmark so poorly? Is there some other bottleneck in the system?

Re: MacHeist Bundle

no idea. Just enter in your details and it will give you a key. Download the software from the Products page and activate it. Worked for me.
