You can not install older OS X versions on newer models, the old OS X version are missing the required drivers for hardware not even available when the OS X version was released. I see several options: You may (legally) install 10.6.8 Server in a VM (Parallels or VMware) though. The latest MacMini supporting 10.6.8 is the MacMini4,1: Apple Mac mini "Core ...

Go to System Preferences → Displays and adjust the Overscan slider (or checkbox, depending on the screen model) so the content fits on the screen. Alternatively, you should be able to change the settings on the display itself to adjust the overscan. For more information on overscan and underscan, see the Apple KB article: ...

You would see no difference in regard to playback between the two, a MacBook Air i5 could handle that task just as ably. Where you will see the difference is with conversion times and ...

One approach that's forward compatible and will not get overwritten in an OSX update is to create a script that does ls -l Screen*.png (on the correct directory of course, I'm writing generically) if the list is empty the script exits, if not it uses mv to rename the file (and optionally move it if you also want to, you wouldn't need to since the renamed ...
