the new G5 is fricking amazing dial 64bit processor and everything in it, super drive(amazing) and up too 8gb ddr now that is how a home pc should be, this computer is not only good for making graphics it is the best one for home use out in the market

wait for prescott... or athlon64.. the latter preferably till intel drops its own 64 bit processor...

the fubar numbers and bogus claims apple makes concerning their product being the TOP DOG are so pathetic and ridiculous

.. apple crippled their competitions hardware using proprietary compilers to give them an advantage but you never hear THAT in their daft commercials... :rolleyes:

sure... fastest desktop in the world... yah.. in the apple world that makes up 1% of the computer market share...

/me poops on apple

/end rant

however apple does have a good reputation for 3d...

The standard Dual 2GHz G5 is 3k and thats without a monitor and with a ATi 9600 and 512MB RAM.

Upgrade to 9800 Pro and 17" LCD ($700 dollars, LOL) and 1GB of RAM
=$4248.00 (Thats US dollars, not ¥)

/me also poops on apple.

/me poops on apple again for good measure.

Even the single processor with a 17" LCD 1GB RAM and 9800 Pro is $3700.

Hey be nice to Apple's over priced hardware. Somebody has to give the schools free PC's so they can sell them over priced educational software and teach our kids how to work on a computer that they will never see in a business environment.

If you want to really get disgusted with Apple read the book:

"The end of Innocence at Apple"

The movie about Gates and Jobs made Jobs look like a saint. He was more on the order of an egotistical moron. Filthy rich now, but more by accident than anything else.

lol.. my thoughts exactly :)

they are all pretty n stuff.. but nothing I want to do can be handled by a mac... and they are certainly not gaming machines :)

upgrading them ? fuhgedaboutit... all proprietary junk...

there is a reason pc's are popular amongst the proprietary crowd...

oh... and to keep the mood light :)

dual 2ghz + 8gb memory + superdrive = EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS :eek:

best for home use? more like best for making you homeless after you run out of money buying it. :p NO one needs 8gb of ram at home.

and isn't the "superdrive" just a standard dvd-rw? :confused:

yip they are expensive - mostly what you are paying for is the processor though ,, in any case I am looking forward to the release of OSX for x86 - that should be good ..

And Taurus the superdrive is a dvd/rw with a cdr combo ..

It won't happen, I discussed this elsewhere with friends, basically apple make their profits from hardware.. enabling there one main piece of software to run on other third-party/cheaper hardware would lose them a lot of profits.

There may be some strange model out there that doesn't :p

apple used pioneer drives in the G4/eMac/PBook didn't they, are they still using them in the G5's ?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
