    QuickSilver

    I feel very sad, I have just sold my both my Quicksilvers, :(

    I still have a TiBook but the Quicksilvers had to go in order for me to get the new machines!

    but the 22" remains, I hope apple don't replace it!!

    Why did you sell them?

    Are you expecting a G5 for the expo?

    sick...?

    That would be sick if we see a quad processor mac. I'm ready to buy something new having used the hell out of my G4...which was the first G4 released. I was sorry to have been impatient and buy the first release G4 (350mhz) when a month later the slowest machine in the line was 400mhz. Oh well...live and learn.

    Re: sick...?

    well I bought the first G4 450 after I already placed an order for a G3 400 I was just checking the website and it changed right before my eyes, I quickly called APPLE and changed my order. Whew! that was close they were hours from shipping the G3 400. Anyway the first G4 350 is not even a real G4 it did not have the sawthooth board.

    More from Distributed Net

    Found this on the multi-CPU, don't have any idea what it means except it lists the CPU speed at 8500 and the number of CPUs as 10, yet the processing power is way off

    sold

    I sold them cause I like to have the latest hardware, speed is absolute, and as an OSX only users (par Golive and Photoshop) the processor makes alot of difference.

    That's sad in a way

    I'm hanging on tight to my quicksilver, I put a huge investment in it, and the speculations are NOT pointing at a totally new PM

    It's a certainty, however, that there will probably be a faster machine, iMac LCD's are a must, but I doubt there is anything that will be THAT good.

    BTW: Ever hear of hacking RC5? It isn't hard to do, and it could be the webmasters having fun ;)

    Would that put them in league with the Apple Marketing hypesters? :)

    Um...

    sorry to burst your bubble- but these "stats/specs" can be easily faked.

    I really doubt there is a 10 CPU Power Mac G4 running Mac OS 9.x and getting astronomical results.
