Stuck in the past
Authored by: dal20402 on Apr 16, '06 08:49:57PM

I frankly don't understand this.

I have a MacBook Pro and it's the furthest thing from a "generic PC clone." If you used one, and didn't know it was Intel-powered, you'd be saying "what a fantastic, unbelievably fast PowerBook! They finally figured out how to put a G5 into a portable!" The user experience is NO different from any other Mac, except that PowerPC programs are a little slower than expected, which won't matter anymore by the time your G4 runs out of steam.

You don't need to run Boot Camp or deal with Windows to run an Intel Mac. As a Mac, it works the same as your G4 or G5, except that the user interface is scorchingly fast. Before you abandon the platform over differences you (trust me) won't even be able to notice, try an Intel iMac or MBP.
