OoooOOOoohhh... :D

I wonder if they'd still run cooler/quieter than my G5 Quad, like the current Mac Pros do...

Any ideas on pricing? I'm so in the mood to spend moolies depending on how many bunches are needed :D

That's what I've been waiting for! And the site I've been looking at too...
I hear that it will only be a little more expensive than the current quads, because the quad proc is about the same price

Oh boy :D Seems I may be going Mac for Lightwave sooner than I though :D

Are there any decent network rendering controllers around for Macs, or is SN2 easy enough to set up for someone with only PC experience? My little Mac mini will be the first CPU to sit on a Mac farm :D

I've found Renderfarm Commander quite easy to set-up. It's also very cheap, around 45 euro if I'm correct.

Welcome aboard! :thumbsup:

To get you started, here's my LWSN Mac OS X tutorial (http://dreamlight.com/insights/10/welcome.html) that covers Jon Baker's ScreamerNet Controller for Mac OS X and Bruce Rayne's Render Farm Commander.

Hope it helps! :D
