  1. They dropped G3 because all of them were less than 867 MHz (this is the base G4 speed)... and lacked some certain graphics chip or something like that (which Leopard needs). It wasn't really about the PPC architecture getting dropped as it was other parts of the G3s. I don't really see them dropping G4s, it was just hypothetical/speculation.

  2. I'm the same way now... :/


    But are they still going to make PowerBook executables for much longer?

    Well, as far as I understand (and I'm still a very big newbie when it comes to the Mac world), the main type of executable is a "universal binary" which covers PPC and Intel. However, with the introduction of Leopard they stopped supporting anything before a G4 processor (as in PPC)... with whatever new OS X build comes out, I would imagine there's a good possibility they might drop G4s. Can't be sure, but I'd like to hope not.

  3. Just get an Intel Mac, and get on with the times. Less hassle with software too.

    I'm actually not too worried about that... Firefox, iChat, Colloquy, BitRocket, GarageBand, iTunes, and QuickTime are all I really need. I don't really do anything on computers like I used to... not much of a power user these days. :blink:

  4. Which of you are Mac users? What model/specs?


    I've got a crappy little iBook besides my main PC. It's a white Dual USB G3... 700 MHz, 256 MB, 20 GB, Tiger. I'm looking to buy a better iBook or PowerBook in the near future once my PC is fixed. Going to sell it off and just go Mac + mobile. :blink:

  5. My girlfriend is apparently going to buy me an Xbox 360 for my birthday and GTA IV (yes, I know -- gnarley). Anyway, I'm wondering which model is impervious to RRoDs or at least less likely to crap out on me. Keep in mind, I'm also trying to go for the cheapest solution.




    P.S.: The birthday isn't for a month+... are there any new models I should wait for?
