This isn't any Apple bashing or anything, I've picked up a couple PowerPC's very recently, I bought A Dual 2.7gzh G5, 16gb of ram, 7800, SSD Hard drive with a 1TB storage drive. Still have my Dual 1.8gzh G5 with 8gb of ram and a dumpster 5200FX. Clamshell, G3, decked out with everything, Tangerine color. Two MDD G4 towers, not sure what I'm doing with them yet 4 iMac G3s, 2 of which work. 50 bucks at a yard sale. As well as a really decked out Pismo Laptop, PowerLogix Upgrade and all that ( I could write a 5 page story as to how I ran into this thing, and I probably will at some point ), with an After market battery, I use this thing every day. All running 10.4, or 10.5. I also very recently purchased a base model iMac, bumped the ram up to 8gb, by iMac, I mean brand new, running 10.7 I just thought it'd be a cool computer, plus the GF likes Macs, so it'll shut her up about my Gaming PC that " sounds like a freaking helicopter when we try to watch movies ", so Far I'm happy with it. Couple of complaints, and the point of this thread. The build quality on this iMac is not as good as the G5 towers, its not as good as the G3 iMacs, and its not as good as the Pismo either. Despite it's metal case and glossy screen. It feels really really cheap compared to the older Macs. And, 10.7. I don't know if its only me, but I have stabilty issues with 10.7, nothing to serious or anything. Just stupid stuff. I ravage the G5 towers all the time, and even snice I got the first G5 a few months ago, I don't think I've had a single issue with 10.4 or 10.7. Is it just me? The Apple " experience " for me is greatly diminished on this new iMac vs the old PPC machines.
