    I just started a thread about how my iMac just went kapoot. I now am seriosly thinking of spending my life savings :( on a new computer. I dont know if I should get a powermac 7470 g4 with DDR, or wait for the g5. What do y'all think?

    Mate sorry to hear about your iMac......... :(

    Personally I'd wait for the DDR G4 that should be out sometime next month....... you could end up with very long hair and a ZZ Top beard if you hold out for the G5..........

    cool, ive always wanted to look like ZZ. jk :D. Well, my whole dilema might be solved if apple releases the 7470 as a g5 when it is actually in truth a generation 4 powermac. If it has both USB 2 and Firewire 2/gigawire then I will get the 7470, but if it doesnt I will wait for the g5. I dont know about a beard though. I probly wont get one of those...

    Maybe I could just get some yogurt....

    How much do you intend to spend??? I wouldn't wait any longer then early September. THAT way, you get 10.2 with the system. Hopefully the G4 will have DDR by then (PC2700 I hope). I would also suggest getting the new ATI video card inside of it. From what I have seen (via online reviews) it's the balls. It also has better spec's then what nVidia has to offer (even the gf4 ti top end card). :D

    I'm waiting, I don't really need a new machine *yet*, but if it doesn't come around by next MWNY, I might be changing my tune.
