    The FedEx guy dropped off my shiny new Dual G5 yesterday.

    I know updates are "around the corner" and all that, but I make my living on the computer, and a day wasted is a dollar lost - so I got myself a Dual G5.

    That said, this thing is fast. Wicked fast. I've been using my Dad's VAIO laptop since my Dual G4 died, and coming back to OS X was ridiculously great. Everything is so pretty, the iApps so great, ahhhhhh...computing heaven. When I watched the WWDC and te G5's were announced, I was sort of "meh" to the overall look of the machine. But now that it's sitting here beside me, I actually prefer the look of it to the MDD Powermac I had.

    As a friend of mine (a future switcher) so eloquently put it:

    "That bastard looks like it means business."

    I couldn't agree more.

    I went to the local mall today to buy Halo and Warcraft 3, but the game store had NOTHING for the Mac. :rolleyes: So I'll be picking those titles up online. Anybody have a tip where I could score these at the best prices?

    I don't really have much else to say, just wanted to share my excitement with fellow mac heads (again).

    Congratulations. It would be a huge improvement over a Wintel notebook, coming to what was arguably the fastest personal computer in the world.

    That is honestly the greatest quote regarding the G5 that I have ever heard. And it's one of the better quotes I've heard in general. :D
