It doesn't. I tried this multiple times.

comment How can I check ethernet card?
I agree with Jack, look into the more common scenarios before worrying about the actual ethernet card. They tend to be more common, and as such, should be ruled out first.

Dropbox on iOS devices does support "Open in", its the icon on the top-right. (I just verified with my iPad to be sure.)

comment What's the advantage of buying an iMac over building a Hackintosh?
W Unfortunately Nathan G is right, the 1080p 21" iMac model isn't anything special in terms of monitor specs.

comment What's the advantage of buying an iMac over building a Hackintosh?
I would say the biggest advantage is it just works out of the box. You don't have to worry about additional kexts, incompatible hardware, etc etc. Just open the box, set it up, and get rolling getting stuff done.

comment What's the advantage of buying an iMac over building a Hackintosh?
@Nathan The biggest benefit in buying an iMac, in my opinion, is that you get the warranty. At the price point of an iMac, the Apple extended warranty will cover every component. Honestly, this is the primary reason I opted for an iMac in my own iMac vs Hackintosh debate.

comment When opening a DMG file, how do I get it to open up in front of the windows?
The OP is well aware of how to open dmg files. He (and many others) are looking for some way to override the Finder's behavior of "popping under" the window that displays the dmg contents.

comment What processes run while my Mac is asleep?
To my knowledge, only volatile memory is powered during sleep. So pretty much all applications are kept in memory, but all other hardware is powered down. All in all @mankoff hit it on the head with his answer.

comment Comparison of Microsoft Word to Apple Pages
Definitely concur with trying both out before committing. That will tell volumes more than just looking at feature comparison grids.

comment How to install Ubuntu from OS X?
The general recommendation is to not use raw disk access with VirtualBox. There are several reports of corrupted data, broken drivers (since VirtualBox installs its helper drivers), etc.
