Well, I’ve finally found a PowerBook [sic] that can hold me.
|450MHz G4||2.0GHz CoreDuo|
|1GB RAM||2GB RAM|
|100MHz Bus||667MHz Bus|
|Radeon 9000 Pro (64MB)||Radeon X1600 (256MB)|
|120GB + 40GB IDE||100GB SATA|
…So yea, the good ol’ PowerMac (circa 2000) doesn’t hold a candle to the competition.
I must say it has served me well, very well. It is a wonder that it has been able to stand up to 10.4, for that I suppose I should be thanking Apple’s engineers.
But enough is enough, while it would still be decent for casual use – I need more, I want to be run both Illustrator and Photoshop, I want to watch H.264, I need to compile apps in a single sitting, and most importantly – I want a fancy widget-ripple effect.
That said, I have no idea what is in store for me with the new laptop. What I do know is that the 1st gen. iMac G5 was an…adventure.
So here’s to all those who took the leap and are running along the bloody edge that is the MacIntel – Groove On!
