    arr! I win! I win! :laugh:

    Ahem. It is a bit of whore-ism - but I'll also be doing loads of video & graphics editting & gaming, so hopefully it should go "swish-ing-ly"

    The package from Apple set me back £1,573.01 + £200-ish VAT ( :rolleyes: ) and I can't remember what the memory from Crucial set me back.

    According to eBay thats 2,979.61 USD + XXX.XXX USD VAT or whatever it is you pay... or ... not if you don't pay VAT.

    But i have been waiting since they brought out the G5 power mac, and since I accumulated substanital funding from family and relatives, I figured might as well just buy it.... though am in a nice bit of over draft now with teh banky dude and dudettes :p

    Oh, sorry I didn't answer your question before.....

    I don't know if I will. I doubt it to be honest, but I'm not planning on buying/upgrading to 10.4 as soon as it comes out. I'm going to wait a while to allow any bugs to be sorted out with Software Updates first :lick:
