    I am looking to sell my PC for an apple G5. I have some questions though. If anyone can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it.:)

    01.Is it better to buy a computer using Apple's Loan System or just taking a loan straight out from the bank?

    02.What is the cheapest way to get RAM? I want to same quality of RAM that apple is using, but really wish I didn't pay so much to have it. Is there a cheaper alternative?

    03.Does anyone know when Panther is shipping?

    Thx !

    01. If you can get a bank loan it would be a much better idea. The absolute lowest possible interest rate on the Apple Loan is 9.9%, still very high. I have excellent credit and I wound up paying 14%!

    02. I've always had great luck and pricing with

    03. Panther should be shipping before New Years Day, 2004. That's about all we know at this point. I'm expecting to see it around the holdiays. Just a guess.
