A person that worked in that department comes and askes do you need any help and they sa, yes we need to buy a computer what we dont know the difference between those there " PCs" and these here "Macs". The person starts. These are mac and you take abiut 1 month to lean how to use them. The couple says that they have never use a computer before and he say you still take 1 mouth. After that he say this comes with 1 GB which is like 4 GB in windows and Macs are about 4 times better and faster then PC.

Anyways Mac dont need overclock because really OC is more for game which Macs lack at.

Actually..overclocking Mac Pro's would be awsome for video editing and stuff like that..not so much games cause i dont there are too many gamers with mac pros LOL.

I see Apple getting all over this, they wont let people buy the cheapest pro and overclock it past the fastest..they would lose money.....and you know what happens when someone makes apple lose money!!!! Jobs goes crazy!

Wow I didn't even think about that....encoding on a Mac must be a nightmare with that hardware! I can hardly stand the wait on mine and my system is FAR from slow....LOL

This has been done before, but it's almost always a solder-job. I've researched overclocking iBook G3s, 4s, and Macbook. Is this compatible with a macbook?
