I never fully understood this topic really. I have always been interested in getting a G5, ever since they came out. I might be able to nag a Quad G5 for very cheap, but I have a question. I know that an Intel Core 2 Duo is faster than a G5, but how is it faster than the Quad? What exactly makes the Intel faster than the G5? I am looking at the Apple specs of the Quad and to me, it looks like a really solid computer, especially for 2005. 2 Dual Core 2.5GHz PowerPC Processors 1MB Cache Per Core (4MB Total) FSB 1.25GHz Per Proc Up to 16GB DDR2 PC2-4200 So, what makes the G5 Quad, or even Dual Core/Dual Proc G5's so weak?
