    The intel version is so big because of Rosetta updates.


    Office:MAC is still just as sluggish on my macbook though :( - Guess it was just bug fixes.

    It's not always a fantastic idea to upgrade shit immediately. I'm in the middle of a project right now and will put off updating anything untill I'm finished because of the chance that it might fux0r soemthing.

    :dunno: Do I get an alert for this? Or do I have to do it manually, everything else updates automatically.

    i assume you connect the powermac via ethernet? if you have wifi on the powermac, you can setup a wifi signal to share internet connection. then you can pickup the signal on the lappy and surf the net through the powermac's wifi.

    You can set it to daily, weekly, or monthly... mine is set at weekly, but I usually hear about updates here, and do it manually...
