I have a highend PC running Windows XP pro. Athlon 64 w/ 6600GT 256mb and 2Gb of DDR400 (low latancy), and two hard drives in RAID0 (2x 160GB). I use the system for allsorts of things, games, internet, email, dvd's, creative stuff like messing with video/images that sort of thing (i have a good size Dell screen (24inch) which makes it a nice machine for playing DVD's in the bedroom. The thing is loud though, i mean too loud to have on when im trying to work proper and im not playing music or have something else as a distraction. Even playing some RTS's can become annoying cos of the noise.. I was waiting on the outcome of the apple expo to see if there were any updates. But there is also this Intel thing. the MacMini looks good but i want a system that will expand like a PC and the mini is crippled from the offset with that graphics card (i dont like ATi stuff in general either anyways) and the hard drive is way too small. The iMac G5 is a lil better but its still a bit lacking, i read a review and they said the graphics card is the limiting factor for 'future' potential and its not a good system if you like to play games too. I think the Pmac is the only option for me, you can get a 6800 ultra for it so that should be a nice upgrade to whats in my a64 right now. There isnt one certain game i play in windows, and ive looked over the games for Mac on apples site and the good ones id play seem to be all there (UT2004!! Fine with me.) but im looking at spending a good chunck of $$$ on this - the pm isnt cheap. I was considering moving to an apple system in Feb but i ended up upgrading my pc instead because i wasent totally sure. Now ive made the choice im thinking i should forget it now that apple have said they are changing processors. I wuld like to buy a 2.7 G5, 2gig RAM, 2x 400gb HDD and the 6800 Ultra and hook that up to my current dell monitor but i want some info about whats coming soon. Is it worth spending on the current systems, cos if i buy software (like i get photoshop with it) and they are moving to intel it seems kinda pointless. Like im wasting my money - i wish apple would announce something to let people interested in switching know what the score is. I read different stuff but most people are saying the G4/5 is dead, and apple arent gonna be spending anymore time on it - so even if they keep some legacy support for it to keep people happy that means that osx/software wont be optimized anymore right? They wont focus on making it run better on the PPC when the Intels are the 'new' thing. They will want everyone to get intel for that. Should i stick it out my PC and wait for the Intel Power Macs? I was thinking of having both but id like to do a complete switch relly. I wouldnt use the PC so it would be pointless to keep it (Ill sell it on QXL i guss). edit:: I wuld have already gone ahed with the system if i hadent read up about the intel stuff. i looked in some other forums and i dunno what to make of it, seems like everyone is just bs'ing when they dont know anything for sure. 2006 was when i was told intel systems would arrive.
