An idea...
Authored by: moded on Jan 13, '05 03:50:04PM

Im thinking about buying a mini mac, but not to use it normally like everyone else. Heres the idea, Keep my current computer and use apple's xgrid to in-slave the mini mac to boost the speed of my old G4 450mhz. My question is, will it work? comments from people currently using xgrid are welcome. thanks.

Yes, but most likely no

Yes: if what you are doing is running Xgrid enabled apps like MatLab or Blast.

No: if what you are hoping to do is essentially make your computer run like it has 2 processors. That isn't what Xgrid does.
