Well last nigh I was thinking about how old my Powermac G4 is, I have a dell that is newer than that but it's now useless( totally bogged down, slowest computer in my life). Will this Powermac g4 500 dualie be as useless as my bogged down Dell?? I'm really scared that when the new computers come out softwaqre won't e able to run on the powermac. But I was thinking if I got a mini it still has the same proccesser G4, so I think that all the new software will be able to run good on the pwoermac. SOOO I'll probably use this for about 2 more years, then maybe a new machine!!
