How's it actually play? Do you have any FPS stats?

"I was talking to Blueshead about playing Halo and UT2K4 with 1/4gig RAM"..
Halo smooth as silk even online..UT2004 a little stutter..but when the ram comes in it should be better..have not checked out my fps yet..but after the 10.4.2 update..halo seems smoother..also since the wifi i use is too far away for an airport extreme..I'm networked into an old Wintel box on XP using a modified Belkin b/g Antenna..I have also disabled Spotlight..

Glad to hear it runs well. I might have to buy Mac versions of those. My PC ones don't work, grrr.

Also, for those who don't know and are quoting using "", there is a quote button on every post in a thread that you can click to easily quote that post for your reply. You can also type them in manually using the form

I don't think he was really criticizing him. He was just letting him know how to quote.

Exactly. I've seen more than one person use "" instead of quote tags, so I was just letting him, as well as other people, know how to quote.

Dude. It's called constructive criticism.
I wasn't sure how to take Susurrus at first. But after you get to know him a bit better, you'll realize he may challenge and criticize you, but he never intends to offend you.

It's often difficult to express tone through written word. Even with "Emoticons" Smile

Something about a nail and a head comes to mind, Wink.

I for one am pretty excited to hear that these games work well on a mini. I'm not a big Wow fan.... but at least i know that I can play the game if I ever wanted to. I'm eager to find out if Call of Duty works well enough on the mini to play regularly.... anyone know?

Hey! I'm just merely helping people out who don't know the ins and outs of the forums. I don't think I've multiple posted; I've tried to be careful not to.

In any case it was supposed to be just helpful advice, not chastise anyone. Sad
