The New PowerMac G5

Well isnt this nice. If I had waited 6 months I could have spent about $4000 on a new dual 2 Ghz G5 (1 GB RAM, ATI 9800, AppleCare) but alas, i spent less then $3000 on the P4 rig I have now. I am sure some of you are wondering would I have gotten the G5 over the P4. Hell yes I would have. Here is why: * downloading virus updates almost daily to combat Windows viruses * running virus software in the background all the time * scheduling virus sweep once a day * scheduling disk defragmentation once a day so my computer doesnt slow to a crawl * having to run a complex firewall to keep things out of my system * running ad and spy ware killing tools every so often I am sure I could come up with a longer list if I really wanted to. But those are the major ones. All of those things do not need doing on the Mac, and more spacificly OS X. Now am I going to go get a new shiny G5 and ditch my P4? Nope. I don't think that would be a wise thing to do. After getting the first model G4 PowerBook I have learned a good lesson. Do not buy the first model of anything. I may buy one in the future, but I will wait until the second generation comes along. That 3 Ghz G5 "within a year" doesn't sound too bad.
