Hey again, I am about to be setting up my iMac (tray-changed to slot) and my sister's Ti G4 book to be used in audio/video editing... I am not too sure one how i can combine the two... the screen on the ti book is, shall i say, a bit problematic... my sister and her cats enjoy destroying it... so that is going to go away all together... I found a crazyly perfect "hard drive cooler" through froggle, that i will mod into the iMac, but I was wondering how i can modify the ti book to be part of the iMac... being a SLOW computer, I believe that the Ti will be much faster... It could go one of a few ways... maybe use the ti book as the processor, keyboard, mouse, etc. and use the imac as a holder for lots of cheepo hds... and the extra slot drive of course... I also want to hook up a number of input devices (cd, dvd, zip, etc.) up in a nice little box under it (kindof like the apple II computers where the screen sits on it) made of wood or something... I have lots of room in the area, being as it is a recording studio that is not anywear near compleation... Now for the reasioning for the title... can I hook this much junk up to one power supply (or two, one for the iMac one for the Ti) or will that take way too much power... I know I will have to have a ton of fans due to apples great iMac design... but can the outlet handle that much?! Thanks for any ideas/advice... I will post a mod guide on some of it eventually, but It is looking like about 20 mods in one... Thanks again.
You can hook up an auxillary power supply for your extra stuff. Its actually being talked about in another post. If you want to combine the power of both macs for video, etc. try Pooch. Its a clustering system just for Macs. Look for a write up in the future right here on MacMod.com.
