    I finally was able to get the Mac that i wanted, YAY !

    My work is paying for half of it so i can do work via VPN from home, and take work home with me rather than making the 50 minute commute late nights and at odd hours. I think this means that ill be doing more work maybe, but atleast ill be home and not driving to work at 2am on any given day, and I'll have a spiffy new G5 PM!!

    I was apprehensive about taking half from my work but they are subsidizing it to make it easier on me since during certian parts of our product life cycle i about live in the office. No company Serial number on this baby! hehe

    Ok, ok on with the specs!

    • Dual 2.7GHz PowerPC G5
    • 4GB DDR400 SDRAM (PC3200) - 8x512
    • 2x400GB Serial ATA - 7200rpm
    • ATI Radeon X850 XT w/256MB DDR SDRAM
    • Bluetooth Module + AirPort Extreme Card
    • 16x SuperDrive double-layer (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    • Bluetooth Module + Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mouse - U.S. English
    • Mac OS X - U.S. English

    Estimated Ship:
    7-10 business days

    Free Shipping

    Subtotal $5,072.00

    My cost = $2536.00 + 1/2 tax on subtotal! Pretty damn good I think :D

    weeeeeeeeeeee I'm on cloud 9 at the moment :D

    Well, I know I speak for a lot of us sitting in front of Dell PCs, running Windows, when I say: We really, really hate you right now. ;)

    Hate...HATE?! I'm sat in front of a bleedin' 5 year old compaq thingy-ma-jig (I don't like to call it a computer - it's an insult to the industry as a whole)

    Oh awesome man!

    But, err, you're going to need a screen ... add in an ACD into there so work pays half of it too?

    But great work dude, excellent.

    I asked about that and was told to "Not push my luck" by my boss in a half-jokingly manner :p

    I have a 19" Sony LCD that it will be happy on, or maybe ill "borrow" a 23" from work :cool:
