Ewww Mac are you serious? Gross! You could buy a decent used 1gz PC for that price and load it up with memory, I would check ebay.

I believe it's BSD based, and not linux based ...

onetime; unix != linux gotta keep it straight :wink:

linux runs great on Macs, though.

I'd build a netBSD box and I wouldn't use Mac hardware :laugh:

10GB of ram is alot for a freebsd box.

I dont know what you are doing though, but ive had freeBSD on 256MG ram run actively as a server and client for over 2 months without a reboot, and that is including extensive X usage. I think freebsd handles memory very well, and right now, with 1.5GB ram, I feel like I can do anything.

Dont know your expectations, but you dont need super processing power to see good results.
