I'v got a 2007 Macbook that I'm getting ready to replace with a new MacbookPro w/ Retina. The Macbook still works great, though too slow for me needs, and I'v been thinking about putting OpenNAS on it. Has anyone here run OpenNAS or any other NAS Linux distro off a laptop? Can this be done with the lid closed? The built in HDD is only 128 GB so I may supplement it with an external drive (if possible), or replace the internal DVD drive with a second HDD. The RAM is only 1GB, though it can cheaply be upgraded to 4GB. My goal is to have network accessible storage for my Windows based desktop and my OS X based laptop. Just using an external drive is difficult because of the different file systems Windows and OS X use.
