View Full Version : Who has a PPC machine and who has a Intel Machine?

Aug 13, 2006, 01:49 AM
Just a poll wondering who has jumped onto the Intel bandwagon or who has faith in the PPC!

I've got a PPC Power Mac G5, but an Intel MacBook Pro - Could you add an option for both? :p

You can select multiple items.

Edit: Oh yeah, I have a 1.83 GHz Intel iMac and a 400 MHz G3.

I have a 68030 too :)

Plan on going Intel in two or three years when 45nm becomes the standard. This iMac G5 will satisfy my needs for now.

Aug 13, 2006, 05:30 AM
Never owned a PPC Mac. My brother has a 1.07 GHz iBook G4 14" though, which I used a lot, before I got my MacBook...:rolleyes:

Aug 13, 2006, 05:35 AM
I have both:)

Aug 13, 2006, 05:45 AM
I have both, too.

actually two intel macs (20-inch imac, macbook), three PPC macs (powermac G5 quad 2.5, 12-inch powerbook G4 1.5, 15-inch powerbook G4 1.25):)

iMac G5 right now - MacBook Pro for College next summer.

Aug 13, 2006, 06:17 AM
I have a white 2Ghz MacBook with 2GB ram and 120GB HDD :D

Aug 13, 2006, 06:45 AM
Both - Mac mini G4 and a lovely new MacBook 1.83 with 2GB memory.

Aug 13, 2006, 06:49 AM
I'm entirely new to Apple and Mac since the switch :) The prospects of what Apple could now do with access to Intel's Core lineup were too irresistable.

Aug 13, 2006, 06:57 AM
I only voted Intel, because my MacBook is my main machine.

I've kept my iBook as a backup machine and have a couple of old PPC machines lying around, and even a 68k machine, but the only Mac I use on a daily basis is my MacBook... ;)

Didn't we just have a poll like this (though without the possibility for multiple answers)?

Move on iGary, i luved my 1.5ghz G4 12" PowerBook, but in terms of power my MacBook kills it, my Quad is still impressive it stuffs anything up i know, but even its days are numbered. Intel is the future. It's not cool to be left behind

PPC, and will be for a while. The dual G5 provides plenty of grunt, so there's no real reason to upgrade at the moment. Plus I'm skint.

Aug 13, 2006, 08:09 AM
PowerPC for me. I'd like to upgrade but I don't really have the funds right now, so I'll probably be using this G4 for a while to come.

Aug 13, 2006, 08:39 AM
powerpc right now for me as well. still got the powermac g5 :)

Aug 13, 2006, 09:32 AM
I, too, have both.... iMac G5 and a MacBook.

Aug 13, 2006, 09:53 AM
My faith in PPC is ensured by my poverty.

Same here :rolleyes:

Aug 13, 2006, 10:04 AM
yeah if i could afford a new mac i woould get one. but for not its the g5 for me

Aug 13, 2006, 10:08 AM
I was smart enough to ebay all my ppc macs right before their intel counterpart anouncments. I sold every one for what I paid and then some. Buy it refurbished or with educational discount and sell it for just below retail which is above those prices. Now I am sittin pretty with a macbook and a Mac Pro. :D

Aug 13, 2006, 10:15 AM
Two PPC Macs; I'd really love it if my I woke up and found my iMac had suddenly become an Intel Core Duo, though. :p But I like my PPC iBook over the MacBook, thank ya very much.

Aug 13, 2006, 10:21 AM
Old school rules. You intel lovers will all come scrambling back to ppc after the next generation of five year olds finds a way to infect the intel chips!

Aug 13, 2006, 10:24 AM
I am in the process of selling an iBook G4 12" 1.33GHz and my white MacBook 2GHz Core Duo 80GB HD should arrive Tuesday morning. :)

Lucky! I wanted to buy the baseline MB just to say that I had gone Intel. But instead, I'm with iGary, I'm not giving up my PPC machine until college in '08.


Aug 13, 2006, 11:28 AM
Wow I got plenty of replies to this poll! I usually screw up my polls by not adding enough options or it's a pretty pointless poll.

I pretty much did this to see how many people have/have not switched over to Intel and I'm just waiting until the time is right.

Aug 13, 2006, 11:31 AM
I've got both. I bought the intel iMac first and then bought the G4 mini for my daughter;) ........

Aug 13, 2006, 11:37 AM
PPC, but Once Merom MBP comes out, I'll have PPC and Intel.

Aug 13, 2006, 11:40 AM
Deliberately bought the iMac G5 with iSight to make sure I got a PPC machine. Also got a 12" PowerBook, which will only be replaced when it dies on me, but then with a 15 inch MBP.

Aug 13, 2006, 11:49 AM
I have a PPC Powerbook 15" and its what is moving my hand to the buy MacPro button in about a week or so. Hurray! Lets see if after a week I am still using the powerbook unless I really really need it.

Aug 14, 2006, 03:54 AM
Got PPC right now, going intel in about 1-2 months with Merom

Aug 14, 2006, 10:44 AM
2 Intels, 1 PPC. Actually, I also have 2 68xxx machines, but they are seldom used. And I have a plan to get the rev b Macbook Pro, or whatever. I can't get rid of the PPC iMac unless I find a solid way to run OS9 on an Intel box, kid's games.

Aug 14, 2006, 10:57 AM
My first machine was PPC (a Mac Mini, which I bought for my sister) - then I bought the iBook G4 - but for college, I picked up a Macbook Pro, and the difference in speed is STUNNING.

The only thing I don't like is Office - I'll be picking up the universal version when it debuts, for sure.

Aug 14, 2006, 11:01 AM
Switcher in 2006 so I have an Intel iMac.

Mr. Mister
Aug 14, 2006, 11:03 AM
I'll be Intel once the Mac Pro ships.

Aug 14, 2006, 12:01 PM
i <3 my ibook g4, its going to take me up untill, maybe through college :). i have no intel mac :(

Aug 14, 2006, 12:03 PM
I have a titanium powerbook coming in and I'm using an ibook g4 right now. As soon as the next macbook comes out I'm there, but for now these ppc g4 chips are treating me perfectly

Aug 14, 2006, 12:08 PM
PowerPC at the moment. But will be PowerPC and Intel when I receive my Mac Pro
