    Removing Chimera from an old SSD to boot Linux

    My primary install with Unibeast used to be on a smaller 240GB SSD. Last year, I upgraded to a 1TB SSD so I cloned my OS X partition to that and the other one has just been sitting there. I want to try to install Linux Mint on the 240GB SSD. I have a live linux USB and have followed the steps...

    Second 1440p display possible with Display Port to DVI adapter?

    I currently am running 2 monitors off my 660ti in Yosemite (having problems with Clover so no El Capitan yet): a Dell U2412M running at 1920x1200 via DVI, and a Dell U2515H running at 1440p via Display Port.

    Which is better: partition SSD or install on HDD?

    As I'm awaiting my PSU so I can begin assembling my computer, I was thinking about how best to set up my drives. I've got a 240GB Sandisk Extreme SSD and will have a 1TB WD Caviar Green HDD whenever it shows up. My original plan was to make an 80GB or so partition on the SSD for Windows booting...

    Another newb looking for general advice (possible mATX build)

    Hi guys. This is my first post and apologies in advance since I know there are many threads like this. I currently have a 2008 24" iMac and a 2012 MBA 13". I love them both and they do the job for me. However, my Air pretty much dominates the iMac in almost every way and I only really end up...
