There are ways to upgrade your 333MHz iMac, but like the other post said, its not worth it.gyroslice said:I have an older 333 Mhz emac. i want to upgrade the processer and add more memory. Any suggestions?
If you can find and adapter that goes from the 14" Pin connector on the iMac to a 15 Pin VGA then you can use it. I would just go out a get either a CRT display or a cheap LCD. You don't have to use Apple's displays with the MacMini.gyroslice said:can i use the computer as a moniter for the mac mini?
I spent $238 for a Samsung SyncMaster 715V 1280x1024 17" LCD from MacConnection (no shipping/tax). Great deal!joecool85 said:I spent $200 at best buy for a 15" LCD screen from MAG, it works great actually. They now have one for $180 or so and its actually a little brighter.
you can't use the external as a primary drive on a tray loading iMac. the ability to boot from USb came in on the slot loaders. but as you say, ti would be super slow anyway.joepunk said:The 333 MHz iMac (the same as in my sig.) does not have FireWire and only USB 1.1 and not 2.0. So any external HD will be slow compared to a MacMini. I would advise not to use an external HD as a primary. The connection speed is just to slow.
The 2 USB ports share the same connection speed, 12MBit's (?), so it each port only gets 6 out of the 12. Later iMacs got the full 12.
Correct me if I am wrong.
