    Just a poll wondering who has jumped onto the Intel bandwagon or who has faith in the PPC!

    I've got a PPC Power Mac G5, but an Intel MacBook Pro - Could you add an option for both? :p

    You can select multiple items.

    Edit: Oh yeah, I have a 1.83 GHz Intel iMac and a 400 MHz G3.

    I have a 68030 too :)

    Plan on going Intel in two or three years when 45nm becomes the standard. This iMac G5 will satisfy my needs for now.

    Never owned a PPC Mac. My brother has a 1.07 GHz iBook G4 14" though, which I used a lot, before I got my MacBook...:rolleyes:

    I'm entirely new to Apple and Mac since the switch :) The prospects of what Apple could now do with access to Intel's Core lineup were too irresistable.

    I only voted Intel, because my MacBook is my main machine.

    I've kept my iBook as a backup machine and have a couple of old PPC machines lying around, and even a 68k machine, but the only Mac I use on a daily basis is my MacBook... ;)

    Didn't we just have a poll like this (though without the possibility for multiple answers)?

    Move on iGary, i luved my 1.5ghz G4 12" PowerBook, but in terms of power my MacBook kills it, my Quad is still impressive it stuffs anything up i know, but even its days are numbered. Intel is the future. It's not cool to be left behind

    PPC, and will be for a while. The dual G5 provides plenty of grunt, so there's no real reason to upgrade at the moment. Plus I'm skint.

    PowerPC for me. I'd like to upgrade but I don't really have the funds right now, so I'll probably be using this G4 for a while to come.

    I was smart enough to ebay all my ppc macs right before their intel counterpart anouncments. I sold every one for what I paid and then some. Buy it refurbished or with educational discount and sell it for just below retail which is above those prices. Now I am sittin pretty with a macbook and a Mac Pro. :D
