I was just curious about how fast your mac is and all of the specs. Include what else you have that you use with your computer. (Ie: surround sound system, anything portable, Mp3 player, digital camera...)

At work:

G4 tower with Cinema Display, 512 RAM, attached CD burner.

I have one for my daily tasks, and two more of the same set up, one running OS X and the other running OS X Server for research and troubleshooting.

Also a Ti PowerBook for going on the road.

At home:

Recently got rid of my 20th Anniversay Macintosh and will be getting an iBoing. (I just use the PowerBook at home when I need to in the meantime)

It's nice being in the Educational Technology department. :)

I'll come back with the specs and brag a little on thei thread once I get my G5:)

G4 400 PCI, 1GB RAM (technically I have 1.5GB in there, but good ol' Yikes! can't read more than 256MB per DIMM. Ain't that nice.) 20GB HD, external 12x10x32 QPS CD-RW.

Peripherals: HP ScanJet 5370C, Epson 880i, Altec Lansing ASC65i speakers (in bondi, right before they came out with graphite, grrr), Kodak DX3500 dig cam, and a brand new pair of Sony TMR-RF975R wireless headphones for those long nights playing Q3A. ;)

Oh, and as for BRAGGING, the only thing I'll be bragging about is replacing my troublesome G4 as soon as the word "G5" leaves Steve's lips. :rolleyes:

I'm in the process of building a Mac parallel computing cluster for physics research. Currently I have a G4 733 in my office and a G4 867 in my lab. I have run them in parallel with performance over 5 GFlops. Probably could do something similar with just a dual-800, but some day I will have roughly ten machines in the cluster. I'm just waiting for new towers....

Sadly, I am writing this from home on my Power Tower Pro 225 (604e clone). Fortunately, I do have a TiBook (400 MHz, but still ...) that is all my own. But it shuttles between home and work so I just leave the Power Tower hooked to the cable modem.

Anyway, once the Mac cluster is really up and kicking I will be sure to come back and post some killer specs. Probably late this year before I really have a nice setup, though.

At work:

G4 733MHz (pre-QuickSilver) with 512MB Ram, superdrive, DLT tape drive attached for archiving. Running OS 9.2.2 99% of the time, occasionally booting into 10.1.2.

At home:

G4 500MHz tower (agp graphics), upgraded with a 32MB ATI Radeon video card, 27GB hard drive along with a 40GB (both internal), 1.5GB of RAM. Using a ViewSonic VG175 lcd monitor on it. Us OS 9.2.2 about 75% of the time, otherwise I boot into 10.1.2.

VST/Smartdisk 30GB FireWire hard drive (titanium one)

Epson C80 printer

Epson Perfection Photo 2450 scanner (connected via FireWire)

About to get a LaCie 32x10x40x FireWire burner (waiting for it to arrive).

G4 500MHz TiBook (rev A), 512MB RAM, added Airport. I use this one 95% of the time, at least for daily and internet use. I power up the G4 tower for scanning and such. On this one, I run OS X 10.1.2 99.5% of the time.

I also have the pc that I built, but that is for games only (won't bother with details).

All of my systems have DVD-Rom/DVD-RAM drives in them, but I don't watch movies with the computers since I have the DVD player attached to the TV (27" is much better then a 19" screen for that).

A performa 600cd for home (33mhz, 8mb RAM, 160mb HD, 13" CRT)

and a PowerBook 145b for on the road (16mhz, 4 mb RAM, only half of the screen works at a time)

Yup, these are my power computers :-p


Actually, I have a G4 400 and a 600mhz iBook with combo drive. It's cool.

Well I am new here...not a lot to brag about but I love my iMac DV Blueberry, I call him "Macky" and he is the best buddy in the world next to "Rusty" my Golden Retriever...hehe I would have to say "Macky" is slightly more dependable then "Rusty" hehe...sorry boy...I still love ya!

I also got a shiny new iBook a month ago. I love it. It is working well for me. I network the two and then I can share files and burn CD's on the iBook. I also have an Imation SuperDisk...because some people that I know still have to hand me a blasted floppy every now and then. I have an HP Deskjet 842C printer...don't laugh it was a freebie when I got the iMac and I have an iSub for my iMac. I got a pro-mouse for the iBook...but laugh as you might...I still kinda prefer my "Hockey Puck" anyone else???LOL I have a digital camera...but I want a better one and well that is about it...any questions? Oh ya I am running system X 10.1 too. This is my first month, I decided to convert when I got the iBook. Alas...this whole month...no matter what I do it will not crash...no more "mac lock" YEAH! Later...

i've got a performa 5200CD (road apple)!!

but seriously, my awesome computer that is better than anyone else's is an indigo 500Mhz iMac! i've got a macally scroll-wheel mouse and soundsticks (other than the look, they suck for the price. they are always having USB problems i.e. NOT hot plug-able)

but i'm thinking about getting an older g4 so if anyone has a 500mhz G4 AGP with a DVD drive, i'd be happy to buy it from you.

Being 16 and only having a job on saturdays, I only can dream of a G4 or 5 for now... Mom and Dad got me my iMac Rev B for Christmas a few years back, and I was totally psyched. Im working on them for a new iMac for the family, and then when I got to college, I'll probably get a G5 tower. :) Until then, im on my trusty:

Bondi Blue Rev B iMac,
96 Megs RAM
4 GB HDD but only 75 megabites are avaliable..
233 MHZ G3
Cable modem, that's a plus :)
LAcie 4x4x24 USB CD-RW
I also use a Canon Powershot S20, which my parents gave me for my last birthday. It's quite nice with 3.3 Megapixels.
Handspring Visor Prism
5-piece Altec Lansing Speaker system, which is kinda nice..

My parents don't understand computers well enough to realize that my iMac served me well, but that I should get a new one. Oh well!

I'm thinking about saving to get a new hard drive just to tide me over until we get a new computer.. I want OS10, but am stuck on 9.2.2

I've got a beige G3. It came with the 9GB SCSI harddrive. I've upgraded the CPU with a Sonnet 500mghz G4 chip. I also put in a second harddrive--Seagate Cheetah 34GB. My little baby is almost 4 years old now and it's still running strong. My Wintel using buddy has gone through 3 computers in the same timeframe. Just goes to show you Macs rule. He's a repair technician at CompUSA by the way. I think deep down he wants a Mac but is too proud to admit that the Mac is better. When I told him that I'm waiting for the new G5, he practically turned green with envy. Hehehehe.

Thanks alot, that's right up my alley being in rockets.

I will use it.

I have another issue which I find interesting:

I have a TiG4-400 (minimal brag, but get one yourself, dude!)

I did a system info and got the following:

Apple System Profile
Devices and Volumes
Internal ATA 0 ID=0
DVD-ROM drive
Driver version: 1.4.7
Mac OS partitions: 0
Removeable media: Yes
Vendor: MATSHITA
Revision number: HA18
Product ID: DVD-ROM SR-8187
Apple disc burning: Supported

No mounted media inserted

I then ran Toast Titanium and it searched the bus and said no writer available. My question is simple. Does this CD drive actually support disc burning but the drivers are simply not installed?

Second question, is there a site or a series or products users here recommend to maximally upgrade storage on this TiG4 for video capture and CD burning.

The Ti-400 is unmodified from its original release date and is running OS9.2.2 with 384mb.

Thanks guys.

work:

mothballed at work:

apple quadra (no monitor)
120 mhz pentium tower (used for my networking class i teach)

therefore, at work since i only use it as a database of clients, the pentium will do

but for home, where i want multimedia and the best internet experience, i want state of the art consumer level stuff and i am certainly eyeing the new imac at 700 or 800 mhz g4 and lcd monitor

the ibook is great for my wife's graphic design side business, but she needs a larger screen and the imac's 15 inch lcd is almost as large as a 17 inch crt in viewing area

...and the g4 with altivec could cruch photoshop instructions much better than a g3 processor...and for the first time, i think an imac consumer level machine has fully crossed over into the pro realm of real life graphic design computing

A bit off the topic, I was looking at the SGI site yesterday and, jesus, they always amaze me. Workgroups come with up to 8Gb RAM and servers up to 1Tb

their stuff is so cutting edge that their market for selling the machines is so limited, that the ones who can actually use and buy the machines are such a small number relatively, that sgi is one of those companies in fear of going under

cisco is on the edge for some of the same reasons, too

the two companies are exceptionally expensive to run and always are in the danger zone of overspending

i would hate so see either company go out of business

if apple made just g4s and tibooks, they too would go under

therefore, it is smart that apple's core business is imacs and ibooks even though a lot of you super macheads would only be seen with a professional mac model

After all these years of being a PC owner (Windows since version 1.0) & network engineer at work, I just bought the new 800 Mhz iMac Jan 10th. I'm bored with the same old OS, and the same old hardware, even though it changes nearly daily.

Can't wait for it to arrive - OS X looks fun!
