    Don't hate me for trading the dusty old indigo G3 400, but it's only a bottom of the line G5. I love it. There'll be no whining here. The iMac G5 rocks! Great Apple support at C-USA, and no waiting. So now.. what is the most important thing to learn about Panther and my new iMac G5? Anyone?

    I hate you because you went to ChumpUSA! :p

    Really, that is a nice setup. I plan to replace my 5 year old Pmac G4 with a 20" iMac G5 rev b or c whenever is out by xmas. How much ram is in there?

    Congrats on the new computer. I adore the new iMacs.

    Lately I've been trying to decide between keeping my Powermac, selling my Display, and getting a 23" Display, OR - selling the whole lot, and getting a 20" iMac G5.

    Thanx for the kind words. ChumpUSA (he-he) was a fourty minute drive, and I've been waiting since the G5 iMacs were announced. It was all I could stand, so I jusy went for it. Though I could've gotten a bettter deal elsewhere, they are my nearest Apple connection, and their Gen-yoo-ine Apple dude, Bobby, is very knowledgable (and really kewl too!). The C-USA had only PNY ram, so I opted to not take my chances with getting it there. I have another 512 coming from a *critical* supplier, so I'll be at 768. quite a jump from a DV400 with 320mb running 10.2
    I do have a question for the MR masses of mac knowledge... I am running a DSL connection and want to connect both iMacs to one Cable/dsl modem. It was suggested that I obtain a Linksys cable/dsl router. I don't want to go wireless until I have the scratch to get a powerbook (hopefully G5 also), so I am wondering what other viable options I can utilize for linking these two great machines together and sharing a port into the www?
