i went to my College's orientation today. and to my surprise when i entered the lab where my class will be held all the g4 500's that occupied the room (about 25) had disappeared along with there 17" apple CRT's when asked what happened to all the computers the program co-ordinator said they are awaiting shipment of new G5's! i was very very pleased!. also with new LCD's (prob 17") then they said they are expecting 250 g5's to replace most older Apple hardware in that building. im going to Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario canada Starting Sep 2nd. hopefully they G5's dont take too long to show up!. otherwise my new media class will be stuck doing paper/lectures for the first few weeks.!
