Hey there, anyone a mac user?
Yup.

anyone a mac user and miner?
Used to be. It's not worth it. Smiley

Do you use ubuntu/windows with bootcamp?
No. Well, not for mining at least.

Im pretty new to the btc world, and I'd like to know how other mac users deal with everything btc related.. I havent come across any other mac users yet, and I'd like to get some insight...
Well, what do you want to know exactly?

Hey, thanks for all your replies Cheesy

Like, I dunno, how other mac users (notable the computer whizzes) go about this whole btc thing, and mining and stuff. Like I started mining LTC, cuz i heard it was doable on a mac, but I only get about 5kHash? which is pretty pointless.. I get free electricity so thats not an issue at all..

Is it possible to upgrade a mac in anyway? (like rigs and stuff) If I move to unbuntu instead of OS X would i get greater hashpower? (i hear this is true for gpu mining, but im on cpu :S)

If you do use ubuntu, would you advise me to get that with bootcamp? Ive been contemplating it, but Im not sure.. I sorta need advice lol
