View Full Version : LW9.6, OS 10.6 & Internal Hard Drive (Mac Pro) Recommendations

02-21-2010, 10:00 AM
There have been different posts on LW9.6 and Snow Leopard, but I don't know if any updates to either may have changed their compatibility. So-

Anyone out there running LW9.6 with OS 10.6?

Have you seen performance gains with LW9.6?

Not LW specific, but I need more storage and Apple sells a 1 TB internal hard drive for $300. Is there a cheaper alternative for storage on my Mac Pro? If so, what would you recommend.

Thanks for any advice.

I have a mac pro and snow leopard. I have no problems. Lightwave runs fine.

$300 is high for a 1 TB drive. newegg.com has them for less than $100. I have this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148433&Tpk=ST31000528AS. They are very easy to install in a mac pro.

Seagate's are great in the Macpro. I have three seagate hardrives in my Macpro and they've been great. With macs so expensive many people buy the best processor they can get and upgrade everything else through Newegg.
