    Well, today another new Powermac G5 arrived at work...a Dual core 2.3Ghz with a couple BTO options and an Apple 20" Cinema Display.

    I'm the guy that gets to spec out and order these machines, but I don't get to use them. Doh! Here's a list of the new computers I've ordered for the lab in the last 9 months:


    -One Dual 2.0 GHz AGP G5

    -5 (yes, 5! :eek: ) Dual Core 2.3GHz Powermac G5s with various BTO options. All have Apple Cinema displays (either the 20" or 23").

    - 1 15" PowerBook - maxed RAM, 128MB video card, 100GB HD and all the other BTO options.

    - 1 12" Powerbook that the end user won't touch because she hates Macs.....It has sat, brand new and unused, for a month now. I think it will stay that way until one of the IT guys swoop it up. I hate that lady. :( :mad:

    - 1 iMac G5 (PCI-e version)

    - 1 Dell Precision dual Xeon with 4GB RAM, a Quadro video card, a SATA boot drive and a SCSI RAID array among other things. Nice.....for a Dell. :D

    It drives me crazy with all this uber stuff laying around!!!!! ;)

    Oh well, in compensation I get to take home the 266MHz beige G3 that the Powermac is replacing. :rolleyes:

    I can relate- I watched 10 dual core G5s roll past me last week, and found out the users are getting 20" Cinema Displays too! Jealousy sets in ....

    It's a good thing I'm so happy with my G4 Powermac at home, or I might be tempted to change the "ship to" address on the next order. :eek: :rolleyes: ;)

    Looking on the bright side, we've bought 9 or so Macs in the last year, and only about half a dozen Dells....

    Oh, and did I mention that, amidst all these new Macs, the computer I get to use here is a wheezy old PIII tower with a CRT that looks like it has a cataract? :mad:
