Dual 1G is OK
Authored by: mmulhern on Sep 15, '03 05:47:13PM

Until I saw/used a G5 in the store, I wasn't even thinking about buying one - those pre-release photos did it no justice.

My dual 1G handles everything I need to do at this time, but the reassuring thing is that there is now a viable upgrade path if I get a new machine a few years down the track. Until the G5 came out, the incremental increases in processor speed meant that the last of the G4 PMacs were not much better than my QS2002.

Desire strikes again....

Man, I want one, I want one - but I bought a 700MHz iBook (my first new computer) a year ago. I can't afford to buy a new computer every year and a half (I'm aiming for three), and I really, really like portability.

So maybe I'll wait for a $1500, light, cool, dual-G5 notebook with the dimensions of a PB 12".

Ha ha ha! (sobs quietly to self)

Yep until I saw it this week in a store in the UK I though no way...but when they popped the side and i saw the beauty of it.......BUT Steve said at the Paris expo 3ghz by next summer - I'm waiting mainly due to cost and also to get the new Apple LCD in brushed metal - thats gotta happen first!
